San Francisco, Calif. - April 7, 2011 - One year into the Eventbrite for Causes program, it's clear that events are a powerful tool in both spreading awareness around an issue, and raising money for a cause. Already, Eventbrite has helped nonprofit organizations raise over $24m with events. We are proud to offer dedicated resources for all nonprofit organizations, and reduced rates to 501(c)(3) organizations. We want to make it easy for these organizers to collaborate and share ideas -- and we want to offer our event management and ticketing solution as an integral tool in executing an event, even with a limited staff. We're thrilled to see that Eventbrite for Causes has become an important resource for nonprofit organizations throughout the world, championing a wide and exciting variety of issues. Sixteen hundred nonprofit event organizers have sold over 375,000 tickets with Eventbrite.
As the Eventbrite for Causes program grows, the company is pleased to announce a partnership with BroadCause, which allows nonprofits to reach an audience of millions who are ready to make an impact. Eventbrite is powering events for all BroadCause users, so they can easily manage and promote their fundraising events.

We were able to save thousands of dollars using Eventbrite in registration fees, and email blast fees."

"The user-friendly templates, the accurate reporting system and the great customer service made it a blessing to not have to worry about the details that traditionally can stress out event planners."
