The kind of people who volunteer to serve their country, the ones who put their nation first and their own lives second, these are our US veterans. They are the kind of people we need to honor, not just on Memorial Day, Veteran's Day and the Fourth of July, but every day.
Now through The Veteran Tickets Foundation, those who care about our military and veterans have a way to give back.
HOW IT WORKS
Veteran Tickets Foundation teams up with major sports teams, leagues, promoters, organizations, venues and ticket holders to provide free tickets to the more than 21 million military and veterans. Currently serving military, honorably discharged veterans from all branches of service, and family of those Killed In Action are eligible. VetTixer's accounts are active once we verify service status. Tickets are either distributed directly to military bases or claimed through our website.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
The 7% of our population that are veterans and less than 1% actively serving shoulder unique burdens of stress, sacrifice and time away from their families. The majority of our veterans have served during wartime. Veterans experience many difficult transitions as they reintegrate back into their families, their communities and eventually civilian life. Many service members and veterans struggle with wounds of war, both physical and invisible.
Yet these veterans receive limited access to resources that are vital to their reintegration into their communities. Military discounts are small or infrequent. The majority of veterans do not receive military discounts because they do not have an ID card. More than that, the cost for the average football game or concert is over $500 for a family of four. This makes many events simply unaffordable for average military and veteran families. Veteran Tickets Foundation is concerned that too many veterans are missing out on the All-American moments for which they have fought and sacrificed. These All-American events are the times we should use to welcome and acknowledge our veterans. These events provide essential community reintegration opportunities, family bonding experiences and improve quality of life. Donated tickets shows our military that their community supports their service. These events are real gifts of gratitude for our veterans who have given so much.
WHO WE ARE
We are a national non-profit, non-governmental 501c(3) tax-exempt organization. All contributions made to the organization are deductible under section 170 of the IRS code. But most importantly, we are a dedicated group of business people who are also Veterans and family members of veterans.
We served our country. Now it's our privilege to serve our military and veterans and to provide an opportunity for the rest of America to express its thanks and gratitude.
When our military and veterans go to an event for free, we want them to enjoy, relax, spend precious time with their families, and feel a part of American life. That's what we are committed to creating, every day. Join us.
