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 8.1 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.
First I would like to give a big thank you to VetTix and The Messina Group for making this happen for my family and I. We are not always able to get out and do things such as this on a single income house hold. Our time and effort go into ensuring our four daughters have everything they need before luxuries like vacations, concerts and football games. You have given my family an opportunity to not only spend time together but to make everlasting memories. It is for that that we are truly grateful for allowing use to build strong family ties. We were also given pack stage meet and great passes for Parmalle and The Cadillac Three. The children were extremely excited to be given this chance at meeting them and getting their picture taken also.

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 shipped, will-call, print at home, or mobile delivery, 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.
