The purpose of University of Florida Performing Arts’ Partners: A Ticket Distribution Program is to distribute tickets to non-profit charitable organizations in the Heart of Florida region, while simultaneously enriching our community through the performing arts, making it a culturally vibrant and desirable place to live.
Groups requesting tickets for UFPA-presented performances may use them in one of three ways:
- As an auction item for a fundraising event
- An a raffle item for a fundraising event
- To bring a group to a performance
All ticket requests for the 2012-2013 Season must be received by September 20, 2012. Requests will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Requests received after September 20 will be filled as they can be accommodated.
In addition, groups which respond by September 20 will be automatically registered to receive emails with updated free ticket availability for programs presented during the season. Groups may request tickets for these events by replying to the email or by calling 352-273-2476. These tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
After receiving tickets, organizations will need to demonstrate how the tickets were used as well as the impact and value the tickets had on their organization’s publics by filling out a post-event assessment survey.
Organizations will be required to re-apply each season. Reminder letters and applications will be sent out July 1 and must be returned by the deadline in September each year for the organization to remain in the ticket distribution pool.
For auction or raffle events, Univerity of Florida Performing Arts must be acknowledged as the donor of the tickets in writing and include the UFPA web site address:
“Tickets for (event name) donated by University of Florida Performing Arts. www.performingarts.ufl.edu.”
