Ticketpass aim to lead the ethical ticketing movement

Ticketpass are aiming to lead the ethical ticketing movement, with their fair and social ticketing platform that puts people first...

If you have ever used ticketing website to sell or buy tickets to events, you might understand how overpriced and inflexible such platforms are. Fees on top of the ticket itself can be extortionate and can result in you spending money you don’t really have or missing out on something great or beneficial. Wouldn’t it be good to have a ticket-selling platform that not only charges less, but also donates a sizeable portion of their own profits to charitable organisations that need the help?

London-based social impact startup Ticketpass thinks so too. Ticketpass says that their values put people first and ‘acknowledge that together we can create positive changeTicketpass in the world’.

To that end, Ticketpass is partnered with GlobalGiving, a crowdfunding community for non-profits and the organisation directing Facebook’s Crisis Response donations. When you buy a ticket through Ticketpass, they will donate 50% of the booking fees to charity projects around the world. 

A look at their website tells us that these projects currently include learning centers for rural Afghan women, educating and empowering children in 6 rural villages in Sierra Leone through EduNations, and helping halt poverty by building a training center for ignored labour pools. These are just a few of over 4,000 vetted community projects that you can help support through Ticketpass across more than 170 countries.

As an event organiser, you can decide if you want your event to support a specific project or to let your attendees choose for themselves. To organise an event is free, whether the event itself is free or paid, and for paid events, the ticket booking fees come in at 10% for the attendees and are capped at £5. There are no limits to the number of events you organise or to how many tickets you sell, and you can track these in real time.

There isn’t much more to add about this, as it speaks for itself. If you run events, why not help make the world a better place at the same time?
