Humanitix is the not-for-profit ticketing platform that gives events impact. They make event management a breeze and give 100% of the profits from booking fees to education projects, including Yalari.
As an event organiser, there’s no better feeling than to announce in your marketing material or at your event that you’ve helped fund someone’s education. It’s why hundreds of schools across Australia and New Zealand now exclusively use Humanitix.
The idea for Humanitix was hatched in 2015 on the rooftop of a burnt-out building in Sri Lanka, where co-founders Adam McCurdie and Josh Ross were camping. That night they made a pact and danced around the campfire – they would make this work. On returning to Sydney, Adam quit his job as a consultant, while Josh shared half his salary. Together they worked day, night and all weekend to build what is now the world’s fastest-growing ticketing platform.
Humanitix powers thousands of events, from the Australian Parliament House to International Women’s Day to the Manly Inflatable Boat race. Along the way, Humanitix has won the support of the Google and Atlassian Foundations, as well as ambassadors like John Eales.
“I love that Humanitix supports Indigenous Education, as I feel we need to embrace our heritage to ensure we are a proud, kind and caring society,” says Eales, who’s as delighted at being a Humanitix ambassador as he is at being a Wallabies Rugby legend.
The partnership between Humanitix and Yalari has also gone from strength to strength. From using the service for our fundraising dinners and events, to promoting the platform among our partner schools, it has been an incredible journey so far. Five of Yalari’s partner schools are now using Humanitix with discussions underway with several more.
Humanitix offers special rates for schools which means it doesn’t cost any more to support Yalari via your event ticket sales.
“It’s so exciting to see the impact grow,” says Josh. “Our event organisers are often surprised to hear that our fees are lower than other platforms. It doesn’t cost any extra for their event to have an incredible impact.”
