Donate Your Ticket

We turn the tickets you can’t use into enriching experiences for children and youth all across our city. 

Donate your ticket and change your empty seat into an unforgettable experience for a deserving kid.

It's More Than A Ticket

When you donate your unused tickets, you give deserving children around the Ottawa area the chance to experience their first concert, see their sports heroes live, or spend a day learning at a cultural event. Not only do they experience a day they will never forget but they also get to feel like they are a part of something bigger, and be involved in their community! 


We gratefully accept tickets for child-friendly events:

• event tickets (cultural performances, concerts, sports)

• admission passes (museums, galleries, art festivals)

• extracurricular opportunities (music, swimming, etc.)
