NATB GIVES BACK
Learn How The NATB & Our Members Support our Communities
The membership of the National Association of Ticket Brokers is more than a group of professional ticket sellers. They are women and men with parents, children, extended families, neighbors, and members of the communities in which they live.
To reflect this, the NATB Board of Directors in 2009 created a charity arm called NATB Gives Back. The mission of NATB Gives Back is to make a positive impact in the communities which support our businesses. We endeavor to do this by providing leadership, programs, and education to the members of the NATB and by forging partnerships with charitable and community organizations.
- Increase visibility and improve the perception of our industry in the eyes of our communities
- Strengthen our communities through fundraising and volunteering
- Create opportunities to attend live events for individuals who would not otherwise have such opportunites.
These principles have come to life in our hallmark initiative: 32 for 32, a unique ticket donation and volunteer program that has brought joy and respite to thousands of children and family members staying at Ronald McDonald Houses across America; earning the National Association of Ticket Brokers the RMHC Award of Excellence. On October 22, 2010, the NATB was made a member of the Ray Kroc Heritage Society and recognized on its Donor Wall, currently on display at the world headquarters in Chicago Illinois.
The NATB Gives Back initiative focuses on benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities. Since 2009, the NATB has partnered with RMHC to provide ticket donations and community service to Houses. Over that time more than $1.2 million worth of face-value tickets have been donated to RMHC and other charities throughout the US. Since the COVID-19 pandemic has severely limited live events, the NATB is committed to helping RMHC in other important ways.
When live events are back up and running like normal, the NATB looks forward to continuing the 32 for 32 program and providing unforgettable experiences for RMHC families.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
In lieu of ticket donations to Ronald McDonald Houses, the NATB encourages members to support RMHC through the AmazonSmile program. By shopping at the URL smile.amazon.com/ and choosing your local House as a beneficiary, NATB members can ensure that 0.5% of all their Amazon purchases are donated to their designated House. It’s a simple and no-cost way to support RMHC during a crucial time.
In addition, NATB members are invited to donate commonly-needed items from House wishlists. Wishlists can be found on House websites or by contacting the House Volunteer Director.
