When to Donate
Tickets for weekend events need to be received by the afternoon of the Friday before the event. However, weekday tickets are accepted up to 2:00 pm local time on the day of the event. This allows Kids Up Front enough time to find a suitable recipient and get the tickets into their hands.
If your tickets are personal or corporate donations, you qualify for a charitable tax receipt. The amount returned on the tax receipt will be for the base price of the tickets (GST and convenience fees are not included in that value and will not be reflected on your tax receipt), as long as you can provide an invoice or receipt with a breakdown of all of the costs.
