Donating Tickets To Those Who Served

Donating your tickets to our troops and veterans is easy, just read over this page. The directions and links to donate are below.

What is Vet Tix

The Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) is a national 501c3 nonprofit founded by veterans dedicated to support and honor the U.S. military community, veterans and their families. The Vet Tix mission is to provide tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts and family activities aimed at improving mental welfare and enriching the lives of military service members and veterans.

Who We Serve

We serve ALL branches of the US Military currently-serving, honorably-discharged veterans and their families as well as the immediate family of those Killed in Action. Since 2008, we have given out over 2.3 million tickets and are active in all 50 states!

How Attending Events Helps

We know that strong family bonds and community involvement are essential tools for Veterans during active duty, post-deployment, and post-service years. Providing event tickets to the US military community shows gratitude for their years of service and encourages them to be active with their families and communities. Receiving tickets in honor of their service allows veterans to feel proud of their military time, which helps build a positive identity. Vet Tix offers such a diverse range of events that it is easy and appealing for vets to use our services, regardless of age or physical ability. We make it possible for retired veterans to take their grandchildren to Disney on Ice, for a family to enjoy an afternoon together cheering on their local team and to experience to magic of the Nutcracker ballet. Vet Tix offers multiple tickets allowing veterans to go with family and other veterans. Events that connect veterans and family builds stronger relationships. Repeated experiences at a range of events helps veterans build a better social structure, both within their families and their communities. The overall result is a higher quality of life.

What our Troops Say

Holding back tears as I write this, I've realized I've been missing out my entire life on living. Getting with Vet Tix this year has been the best thing I've done for myself & others in a very very very long time. I've gone to a variety of sports events and concerts that I've never ever been able to do when growing up due to being poor (so all of them have been 1st times for me), being in the military one would think that we would do it all the time (but we are all different: so we don't), "skip to".... thanks to Vet Tix & all of its supporters I've been able to reconnect with several family members & friends because I tend to keep to myself. ...but not anymore. I've noticed some positive changes in my life (as well as others around me) & I want to say it's largely due to VET TIX and all the supporters/donors......THANK YOU ALL!!!

Why do our donors love us?

Vet Tix provides a rewarding and simple way for donors to give back!

Vet Tix enriches Veterans' lives, but we are also a benefit to donors. Since Veteran Tickets Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit foundation, individual ticket holders and businesses can receive tax deductions for their donations which they would not receive by donating directly to bases or military families.

The Vet Tix system is transparent. We are independently GAAP audited and have been at 96.5% to program or above each year. Venues, artist, teams get to know that their tickets are used by our Military and our Veterans. Our verification system ensures that only qualified people get access to tickets and discounts. We provide easy methods to donate will call tickets, electronic tickets or paper tickets, with complete tracking along the process.

What other Donors Say

Vet Tix is a great organization to work with because they are very well organized and make sure that the tickets donated are being put in the right hands. Although we have a pretty good grasp on the military community in San Diego, Vet Tix helps us reach other service members we may not have reached. Vet Tix is part of our Charity Ticket Program in which many of our tickets are donated to military and first responder communities. I was very impressed on how organized Vet Tix is with the fact that they have every recipients name, address, and track their redemption on if their tickets are being used or not. Vet Tix is great to work with and we are looking forward to great 2015 season.

Thank you AEG Southwest and Vet-Tix for donating our tickets to the Kenny Rogers Concert. My family and I had great seats and a great time as we watched one of country music legends on his farewell tour. Outstanding evening as Kenny not only sang his hits but also told stories of his upbringing and memories throughout his 55 year music career. Thank you very much once again...a night we will always remember. v/r Monkman Family
