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 for individuals to experience live entertainment, who would not otherwise have such opportunities.
These principles have come to life in initiatives such as 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; the RMHC Awards of Excellence; Homeruns for Heroes, and; raising money for families of children awaiting organ transplants through Hayden’s Hope.
The NATB Gives Back Initiative is broken out into three programs, your time and talent ensure the ongoing success of these worthwhile ambitions.
In just one day, the NATB’s 32 for 32 Program raised more than $3,000 from the following NATB Members:
|Red Line Tickets||$350|
|Gold Coast Tickets||$100|
HOW YOU CAN HELP
As part of the NATB Gives Back partnership with RMHC®, the “32 for 32” program has been created. This three-year initiative will donate 32 tickets for every NFL preseason game in each of the 32 NFL markets to the local Ronald McDonald Houses. Additionally, NATB members will donate 32 hours per year of volunteerism in each of those 32 NFL markets.
Every little bit counts, so any ticket donation or volunteer time you can provide helps us reach our goal. If you would like to donate tickets or time, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include in the subject line the team, quantity of tickets or hours, and the total face value of your donation, with your detailed contact information in the body of the message.
You can also donate tickets by visiting your local RMHC house. Just make sure to reference the NATB partnership when you make your donation and email email@example.com with the details requested above.
