How do I make a ticket donation?

How close to game time can I donate my tickets?
We ask that tickets are donated 72 hours before the game. If you have missed the window, you can contact Rae@kidsinseats.org and see if they can be accepted.
Can I donate a single ticket?
We do not accept single ticket donations
Can I donate just a parking pass?
Yes! Follow the steps to donate a ticket and within 72 hours you'll receive a receipt.
Does it have to be a sporting event ticket?
No! We send kids to all sorts of ticketed experiences. Feel free to email Rae@kidsinseats.org if you have questions about an event you want to share with a child.
What more can I do?
The ticket gets the child into the event! We are always looking to enhance the experience by providing a meal and/or souvenir. A financial donation can be made so Kids in Seats can complete the experience. For more information, contact Rae@kidsinseats.org
My company has a box, suite or luxury tickets. Can We take advantage of donation too?
Yes! We work with several banks, financial institutions, firms and businesses who donate their corporate tickets and receive a full tax write off for the value of the event. These tickets are ALWAYS supervised by program staff. We can be more flexible with donation times knowing that client meetings change, and ticket availability is commonly day of.
How do I become part of Kids In Seats?

No. At no time can tickets be used for fundraising or raffles. Tickets are to be used for reward and recognition of behavior.

Can kids go unsupervised?
It is completely appropriate for 16-18 year old's to attend an event with a friend. It is your judgement to send a 16–18-year-old to an event without an adult. You know your kids best.
How many tickets can I get per event?
That all depends on our inventory. Ticket allocations are determined per event.

Tickets are transferred electronically through the event platform i.e. Ticketmaster, SeatGeek
What if my client/student does not have a smart phone?
Kids in Seats will arrange for the tickets to be left at will call. A valid ID will be needed to pick up tickets.
What if I don't use all my tickets?
It is expected that your group will use 100% of the tickets allocated. Failure to do so will result in your inability to claim other events for a period of time.
Is there a fee to be part of Kids In Seats?
Yes. There is an annual fee. Please contact Rae@kidsinseats.org for more information.
How will my group know that tickets are available?
Your designated contact will receive an email announcing ticket availability
How far in advance are ticket opportunities announced?
Tickets are announced typically 3-10 days before the event. These times vary by our ticket donors. Occasionly, tickets are announced the same day. We realize that that does not work for all groups. No worries.... there will be more events to come.
What if I have more questions?
We are happy to set up a call to answer all your questions. Please email Rae@kidsinseats.org
