With your support, we provide children with opportunities today to inspire the hopes, dreams and achievements of tomorrow. These experiences include professional and/or collegiate athletic events, concerts, theater performances, museum exhibits, and more.
Some experiences in childhood are unforgettable. Remember the first time you went to a ballpark and heard the crack of the bat in response to the opening pitch? How about sitting in the audience in the dark hushed auditorium, waiting for the curtain to rise on your first viewing of "A Christmas Carol?" Some fans recall the roots of a lifelong passion beginning with the squeaking shoes and hustling on the hardwood floors of a college basketball arena. Whatever the experience, Tix for Tots is a child's first ticket to a better life.
On average, Tix for Tots coordinates over 100 ticket opportunities EACH DAY for kids in Minnesota & Wisconsin! Tix for Tots works with nearly 200 nonprofit organizations, 30 venue partners, 400 individual ticket donors, 120 volunteers and a Board of Directors. We search for new events that would benefit children and manage a ticket distribution system that rewards organizations that make good use of requested tickets. We recruit, train and manage our volunteers along with setting up each volunteer experience. The ability to employ our Program Manager is the foremost example of why your monetary donation is so important to maintaining and growing the services provided by Tix for Tots. We value our resources and make the most of every ticket and every dollar, especially during these economically challenging times. We have earned the Charities Review Council’s “Meets Standards” seal of approval, reflecting our commitment to accountable and ethical practices. Still, we continue to see an increased demand for our service. Last year, we added 77 new nonprofit partner organizations, introducing thousands of new children to our network. Your monetary donation will help us respond to this growing need. Whatever you can afford will make a difference.
