What is 1st Tix
Who We Serve
How Attending Events Helps
We know that strong family bonds and community support are essential tools for 1st responders as they navigate through their dangerous and often traumatic professions. Positive social support buffers against stress and is associated with better psychological and physical functioning. Attending events initiates positive social interactions helping to foster and maintain meaningful relationships. Having a strong social network also protects against isolating tendencies which can increase depression and anxiety symptoms.
1st Tix offers such a diverse range of events that it is easy and appealing for 1st responders to use our services, regardless of age or physical ability. We make it possible for retired responders to take their grandchildren to Disney on Ice, for a family to enjoy an afternoon together cheering on their local team or to experience to magic of the Nutcracker ballet. Vet Tix offers multiple tickets allowing 1st responders to go with family and other responders. Repeated experiences at a range of events helps veterans build a better social structure, both within their families and their communities. The overall result is a higher quality of life.
Why do our Donors Love Us?
1st Tix enriches 1st responders' lives, but we are also a benefit to donors. Since 1st Tix is part of Veteran Tickets Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit foundation, individual ticket holders and businesses can receive tax deductions for their donations.
The 1st Tix system is transparent. We are independently GAAP audited and have been at 96.5% to program or above each year. Venues, artists, teams know that their tickets are used by 1st responders. Our verification system ensures that only qualified people get access to tickets and discounts. We provide easy methods to donate shipped, will-call, print at home, or mobile delivery, with complete tracking along the process.

"Plano Children's Theatre has enjoyed our partnership with Vet Tix by offering tickets to our productions. It is a small token of our gratitude for the sacrifice they have given our country. It helps us keep our seats filled, and provides enjoyment to some very deserving families.

Thank you so much for the incredible experience. I was able to take my two daughters, huge football fans, and one of their friends. After some of the hardest years my family has ever been through, experiences like this help create positive memories and help shape my kids' childhood as well as their futures. I'm so grateful for opportunities like this and never take it for granted. Thank you donors and VetTix!!
I would like to thank the Rattlers for tickets to the game. As always the seats were great!
