How to Help Event Creators in Need

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the events industry is struggling. If you’re in a position to help, this community could use your support now more than ever.




What You Can Do

As COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the world, the pandemic is putting a financial strain on both event organizers and attendees. With in-person events on hold for the foreseeable future, Eventbrite’s event organizers, who rely on events to support themselves and their families, are struggling to stay afloat. We understand that for many people who are financially impacted by the virus, supporting these businesses during this time isn’t an option. But for those who are in a position to assist financially, event businesses could use your help.

Whether you would like to make a donation or want to purchase a gift certificate to use in the future, there are many ways you can help — no matter how big or small.
