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

The last time I was in the Florida Theater was when I was nine (9) years old. Let's see, that was about 53 years ago. As soon as I walked into the theater I suddenly remembered the area where I sat as a young lad and the show I was watching. I remember it well; I was watching the Rin Tin Tin Show on TV and was very excited when it came on. My Mom told us kids that we could go into town with her to see the original Rin Tin Tin at the movies (Florida Theater). I remember that all of us kids were very excited and it was a major event in our lives!

I want to thank you Vet-Tix and the Community Nutcracker 2014 - Linda George for donating the tickets for another wonderful evening out and the Great memories of my past.

I say this with a tear in my eye, I Love you Guys Jesse E Hall Jr

PS
The ballet was GREAT, too!!! I applaud the cast and all who put together this wonderful performance.

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

The Vet Tix Foundation has been a great organization to work with over the past few years. They are able to distribute tickets directly to Veterans that we likely would not be able to reach on our own. Vet Tix often sends us "thank you" notes from veterans that receive tickets and wanted to share their experience with us. They have proven to be a great tool in aiding us to reach some of our military fan base and have really streamlined the process for us. We look forward to work with Vet Tix this coming season and the future.

Thank you, State College Spikes, for the tickets to the game this past Saturday. We enjoyed a nice evening at the ball park with friends. They had never been to the stadium before. They liked it and a good time was had by all.

Thank you AEG Live! My 9 year old daughter and her 2 friends enjoyed a spectacular night screaming happily through their experience of Selena Gomez's Revival Tour. When I returned home from my tour in Afghanistan, my daughter was 3 years old and therefore did not recognize me since I had been gone for over 12 months. Since my return home from deployment, it has taken time to build a loving and trusting father-daughter relationship. Special events like the concert your organization donated to VetTix makes it possible to build happy memories and a trusting relationship. Thank you very much AEG Live for the tickets and the chance to build new memories between a father and daughter. Jeong
