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 9.9 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.
My family and I would like to send a big thank you out to the Connecticut Tigers and Vettix.org. The organizations together as my daughter said leaving the baseball game was, "great experience". I was able to take my daughter to her first ever baseball game that without their help would not have occurred yet do to medical and financial issues. Leaving those issues behind and enjoying the night was made by both as we got to watch one awesome baseball game with two home runs, got to sit right behind home plate, and the biggest thrill for my wife and I was when the Connecticut Tigers choose our daughter to participate in events where she got to actually go out on the baseball field and play. There where so many memories created last night by this game that will last for years to come in our family. Once again thank you Vettix.org and the Connecticut Tigers.

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
Oregon State Athletics began working with Vet Tix back in the 2012 Football season and the partnership has been nothing short of amazing! We were having difficulty with filling our stadium for non-conference football games due to our student body not yet being in class. We wanted to accomplish two things, fill the stadium and provide an opportunity to those that would normally be unable to attend. The working relationship with Veteran Tickets Foundation helped us accomplish both goals. We were able to move a couple hundred tickets in a matter of days.
Eddie and his staff makes it so easy to donate tickets to the organization. The ability to send tickets electronically makes life managing inventory much easier.
Another aspect of the relationship that I personally enjoy are the testimonials from those that used the tickets at the event. When I receive the link, just reading the gratitude shows that this partnership is a win for everyone and one that I see continuing for a very long time.
