From UK Fundraising
Ticketpass, a London-based Tech for Good social enterprise, launched its ethical ticketing and event creation platform with the aim of allowing people to make a social impact when creating and booking events. Under its “Give Back 50” promise, Ticketpass pledges to donate 50% of its booking fee revenues to charities across the world. It is free for event organisers to use.
Ticketpass has partnered with GlobalGiving to offer event organisers and ticket buyers a choice to donate to over 4,000 vetted community projects, in over 170 countries and keep up to date with the impact of their donations through the project reports uploaded to the platform.
Event organisers using Ticketpass will be able to decide which charity they want their event to support. Alternatively, they can allow event attendees to choose a project that resonates with them.
Charities organising events using Ticketpass also have the choice to direct donations to their own projects for additional income. Regardless of the event and the booking fee involved, attendees also have the choice to donate an additional amount to a charity of their choice.
