“We all gained a greater appreciation for how lucky we are, as well as a sensitivity towards those less fortunate. I can’t thank you enough for the karma cash program. It brought our family closer together, instilled a healthy work ethic, and gave us an appreciation for our many blessings in life.” – Tiffany Shuster, 2015 Karma Cash Participant

Annual Karma Cash Program

Music is something that everyone should be able to enjoy, regardless of social or economic status. One of the ways we fulfill our ambition to make music and the arts accessible to everyone is through our Karma Cash program. We accept concert ticket donations from music promoters, such as Riot Fest Corporation, to offer as additional incentive for individuals to volunteer at 501(c)(3) organizations. Not only does this allow fans to attend events they otherwise might not be able to afford, but it provides our fellow nonprofit organizations with a much-needed volunteer force… truly two birds with one stone.

For more information on our annual Karma Cash program that takes place every November, email karmacash@riotfestfoundation.org.

Ticket Donations to Nonprofits

Throughout the year, Riot Fest Foundation donates Riot Fest music festival tickets to other 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to support their fundraising goals. Last year, Riot Fest Foundation’s charitable ticket donations totaled $5,325.

If you are a nonprofit organization seeking a ticket donation for your fundraiser, please email info@riotfestfoundation.org with the following information:

  • Solicitation letter, or detailed description of how the tickets will be used to support your mission and further your organizational fundraising goals;
  • Proof of exemption (IRS letter of determination, e.g.);
