Ticketfly, the social ticketing platform, today announced the launch of Ticketfly Causes, a new program that will support and encourage charitable partnerships through giving and volunteerism across the company’s growing community of consumers, employees and clients.
The goal of the program is to further the awareness of, and service to, not-for-profit organizations that are important to Ticketfly and the broader live events and music community.
Ticketfly Causes encompasses giving initiatives at three levels:
Company: Since the company’s founding, Ticketfly has worked closely with several non-profits. The new program expands on that work and reflects a deeper commitment to the causes closest to the company and the broader community. Through Ticketfly Causes, Ticketfly is partnering with a select group of organizations that share the company’s commitment to promoting the power of live events to do good and give back. Initial Ticketfly partners will include Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and HeadCount.
Employees: With the launch of Ticketfly Causes, employees will receive up to 24 hours of paid time off each year to volunteer for non-profit organizations which they are passionate about, and be able to participate in the company’s donation matching program, which encourages employees to support causes through direct financial assistance. Through an online community created by Ticketfly, employees will be encouraged to share stories about their community volunteer work.
Clients: Ticketfly will help its growing roster of clients to support non-profit causes in their local communities. Already, Ticketfly clients are able to use the Ticketfly platform to promote charity events, including collecting donations from fans during the ticket purchase process.
Fans: The program will also encourage music fans and ticket buyers to contribute time and money to causes that are dear to them. Ticketfly will enable donations to these organizations during the ticket purchase process and via the company’s Facebook page.
