Mission Statement

Veteran Tickets Foundation (Vet Tix) enriches the lives of our Military and Veterans by providing reintegration opportunities and family bonding experiences with tickets to socially interactive events. Tickets For Troops Veteran Tickets Foundation gives back to the Military, Veterans and their families by providing free and discount tickets to sporting events, concerts and family activities. These events are a real gift of gratitude to honor veterans' service, while providing essential community re-integration and family bonding opportunities. Hero's Wish Recently deployed, severely wounded and KIA families are shouldering the hardest burdens of military service. The Hero's Wish program allows a veteran to request a one time dream event, such as a trip to Disneyland. These events are the most important. They allow families to spend time together in moments of happiness, without the stress that has become a constant in their lives. These veterans have sacrificed to protect our life and liberty, Veteran Tickets Foundation wants to say thank you by assisting in their pursuit of happiness.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Veteran Ticket Foundation has brought happiness instead of stress, family bonding after years apart and recognition of honor for service to veterans and their families across the country. The events to which we provide tickets allow veterans to receive real gratitude for their years of service and sacrifice, while assisting them in reintegrating in their communities and families. We give a gift of happiness to those who gave so much. Our users report increased quality of life, improved family time and even reduction in PTSD symptoms. In the first five years we gave over 530,000 tickets and fulfilled 124 Hero’s Wishes.
