Can we sell tickets to an event using GiveMN?

Great question!

No—GiveMN is an entity designed to support donors supporting their favorite nonprofits and schools.

If a donor buys a ticket for a donation, that transaction is no longer considered a charitable donation, but a business transaction, receiving goods for money.

You are still allowed to have an event and invite your donors! And we certainly encourage you to thank your donors in as creative a way as you can imagine.

If you have further questions regarding selling items/raffles/ trading items in regards to philanthropic giving, contact your organization’s legal counsel as they will have a more thorough answer for you than we will.
