More Than a Ticket!
To donate your tickets, simply email or transfer them to: [email protected]
Here at Kids Up Front, we strive to deliver more than just a ticket to deserving kids, but we need you to help us get the tickets! Our partnerships with child-serving agencies around our community give us access to thousands of deserving kids who get to enjoy your donations!
When you donate your unused tickets, you are giving deserving children around the Vancouver area the chance to experience their first concert, see their sports heroes live, or spend a day learning at a cultural event. Not only do these kids gets to experience a day they will never forget but they also get to feel like they are a part of something bigger, and be involved in their community!
How to Donate
If you have e-tickets you would like to donate, just email or transfer them to us at [email protected].
If you have hard copy tickets you would like to donate, please reach out to us at [email protected] to make arrangements. Please let us know what kind of tickets you would like to donate – as well as how many and what they are for – along with your contact information (full name, address including postal code, email and phone number for a charitable tax receipt) and we will get them into the hands of deserving children!
For safety, we accept two tickets minimum – no single tickets.
Contact our office for more information at [email protected] if you have any questions or need clarification.
When to Donate
Kids Up Front appreciates as much notice as possible when it comes to receiving donated tickets, but we understand that circumstances change!
We can accept ticket donations up to 48 hours before the event time. This allows us enough time to contact our partner agencies, for them to find a suitable recipient and for us to get the tickets into their hands. If you are interested in donating after this cut off time, please email us and we will be able to let you know if we can find a deserving child/youth to attend.
We are closed on weekends, therefore we are unable to accept or distribute any event tickets during this time.
If your tickets are a personal or corporate donations, you qualify for a charitable tax receipt. When making the donation, please include your full name, address including postal code, email and phone number to receive a charitable tax receipt.
The amount returned on the tax receipt will be for the base price of the tickets (GST and convenience fees are not included in that value and will not be reflected on your tax receipt), as long as you are able to provide an invoice or receipt with a breakdown of all of the costs.
If you do not have an invoice or receipt for your tickets, we encourage you to contact the organization that you purchased your tickets from as we are unable to provide a tax receipt without this documentation. Tax receipts are issued approximately once per week.
Misuse of Tickets
Kids Up Front does not tolerate ticket scalping. It is against our policies for tickets to be resold for profit by the agent or the recipient. Tickets are never given to volunteers, friends or neighbors, unless attending as a chaperone or as directed by the donor.
