Charities

Changing the world one ticket at a time

Our aim is to turn every event into an opportunity for philanthropy by asking you to allocate our profits to a charity of your choice*. At no additional cost every ticket sold creates a meaningful impact, a win-win for the event organiser, the charity, and the patron. By engaging more people to consider what causes they believe in, an empowering, active, social conscience is created.

 

We’ve partnered with some of Australia’s best charities addressing health, environment, education and indigenous affairs. See our below partner charity list to learn more about their respective organisations and what our donations achieve. We are always on the lookout to add to our partnered charities, if you’ve got one in mind please email charities@humanitix.com.au
