Ticket Donation Program

Northrop is committed to supporting non-profit organizations and schools through our Ticket Donations Program, providing free tickets used for live/silent auctions, raffles, and other fundraising events and activities. We donate hundreds of tickets per year to local non-profit organizations. We are currently able to donate one household ticket for an online/live stream Northrop Season event. 

Although we would love to grant all requests, availability is limited and priority will be given to local non-profit organizations and schools that support the arts, education, social services, medical organizations and research, military, animal welfare, and anti-racism efforts. However, all requests are taken under consideration and evaluated individually. 

If your organization would like to request a ticket donation from Northrop, please fill in the form below. Please submit your request a minimum of four weeks prior to your event date. The organization requesting the donation will be contacted by email, regardless of whether or not the request is approved.

We can only give once per year to each beneficiary group. No donations will be made that benefit a specific political organization or religious affiliation, individual or family. Donations are limited to fundraising events only.

Ticket donations are based on availability.
