Nonprofits are raising money with creative virtual, hybrid, and socially distanced ticket events that are both fundraisers and ways to engage their communities. GiveSignup provides the technology that enables nonprofits to both sell tickets and grow donations with a purpose-built ticketing platform that's a modern alternative to Eventbrite, Classy, Crowdrise, and Blackbaud.
The El Paso Holocaust Museum (EPHM) is virtually celebrating a community of togetherness with a virtual Flights & Bites event that support EPHM and its fight to combat prejudice and intolerance for a more peaceful future. Ticket options feature Munchies from local restaurants and Margaritas provide the ingredients for a perfect margarita, with a live mixology class via Zoom! In addition to selling tickets, EPHM makes a soft ask for donations that have already raised an additional $2,000.
Pets Are Loving Support (PALS) held a virtual Pet Cotillion to find their Fall 2020 "spokespet" and raise money to provide free pet food and low-cost veterinary care to the pets of Atlanta area persons living with disabilities and the elderly. PALS set up one ticket event for pet registration with a $25 dollar fee and integrated donations. Then they featured 8 pets in a voting competition. GiveSignup's flexible platform lets PALS create "tickets" that each featured a pet with a short bio, and voters paid $1 per vote. PALS had more than 2,000 votes and also raised more than $1,000 in extra donations through the event.
Grief's Journey, a nonprofit whose mission is to help those experiencing grief find hope through support services, grief counselor education, and awareness, hosted an online cooking show with chefs from local restaurants.

The Ministerial Association Temporary Shelter (MATS) in Morristown, Tennessee is raising money by selling fresh smoked turkeys and pre-cooked hams for Thanksgiving dinner. Ticket purchasers choose their items as well as a time when they will pick up their turkey or ham up from the MATS parking lot to ensure a socially distanced event.
The Louisville Zoo hosted a virtual release of 1,000 tagged monarch butterflies to coincide with the annual monarch migration. Attendees bought tickets to watch the live-streamed event online. People who donated $5 when they bought tickets received a tag number of a butterfly to follow its journey.
Instead of cancelling their annual gala, the Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado is selling tickets and collecting donations for a Gala At Home. How does it work? Free tickets are available to the gala livestream event. With GiveSignup, free events are free so neither the nonprofit nor the attendees pay anything - and Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado gets the benefit of collecting supporter information AND making a soft-ask for an optional donation. Paid tickets are available for a Gala in a Box party pack that comes with wine and a prepared dinner.
The Asservo Project hosted a socially distanced paintball event to raise awareness and money to combat human trafficking and child exploitation. In addition to selling paintball tickets to participants, they also raised money by selling spectator tickets at a lower price of $10. Optional donations helped raise an additional $500 for the nonprofit.
The Southwest Indiana Association of Health Underwriters held their annual golf scramble to raise money for Chemo Buddies. GiveSignup's flexible ticket holder information collection lets them collect information for each member of teams as well as sell individual tickets for those without a group.

GiveSignup's 21+ ticket settings only allow legal adults to buy tickets to the event.
