That's the Ticket!
“It works a little bit differently with each of our partners, but typically artists and sports teams keep an allocation of tickets for their own purposes,” Courey says. “We ask them to include us in that allocation.”
Tickets-for-Charity works with organizations to help them get the word out to constituents about events and with the artists to help them reach out to their fan clubs. Individuals who purchase tickets from the site receive an invoice that itemizes the ticket price and the donation amount as two separate transactions — “to maintain transparency for the customer, so they know where their money’s going,” Courey says — and are given the option to opt in to future communications with Tickets-for-Charity, as well as with the organizations themselves.
“I think that supporters of charities are really excited to find a different way to help support those organizations [they care about],” Courey adds. “So instead of always being asked for cash right up front, here the charity is able to provide a benefit to their donors and say, ‘Have a good time while you’re helping us out. We greatly appreciate it, and we’re making this special opportunity available to you. Thank you.’
“It doesn’t have to always be actively thinking, ‘How can I do this, how can I do that?’ This is a way that people can keep doing what they’ve always done and have a feel-good moment,” she explains.
