How does Givenik work?

Start at our home page and choose a charity you'd like to support. Feel free to click and learn about each one if you don't already have one in mind! Then browse our available shows and select the one you'd like to see. We offer a variety of shows, both Broadway and Off-Broadway, and we sell individual tickets, premium seats and groups. We then donate 5% of the cost of your tickets to whichever charity you chose.

Do I need to sign up to browse your offers or learn about charities?

Nope! Feel free to browse our site however you like. Before you make your purchase, we ask for your name and e-mail address. This will help us remember which charity you support for your next visit to the site, as well as allow us to share special news and offers with you via e-mail.

Do I have to select a charity every time I make a purchase?

No - just once! After you give us your email at your first purchase, we will remember who you supported, so you can quickly support them again. You're also more than welcome to change the charity you support whenever you'd like, too.

What are the Telecharge and Ticketmaster service charges and why are they charged?

Service charges cover convenience and handling fees, as well as select mailing options, and genrally are in the range of $6.50 - $8.50 per ticket, depending which system you're using. Additional mailing fees may be incurred depending on what shipping option you use.

What are premium tickets?

Premium tickets are some of the best seats in the theatre and are often available after other tickets are sold out. You’ll pay more, but you’ll get great seats and often at the last minute!

Why can I buy individual tickets and group tickets to some shows, but only group tickets to other shows?

Each show selects what offers to make available to us at a given time. Many shows that only offer Group Rates may add an individual ticket offer soon, so keep checking - our site is updated frequently with the latest offers!

How can I get a seating map for the venue?

The Ticketing Agency offers seating maps for many venues. After clicking Get Tickets on Givenik, you will be redirected to the Ticketing Agency’s website to purchase your tickets. On that site, click View Seating Chart.

Can I use two different credit cards on my order?

Telecharge and Ticketmaster cannot separate one ticket order into multiple payment methods. If you would like to pay with two different credit cards, please place two orders.

Can I have my tickets sent to an address other than my billing address?

Telecharge and Ticketmaster can only mail tickets to your billing address. If you don't want them sent there, we recommend having the tickets held at the box office, where they can be picked up any time, including when you arrive at the theatre for the performance.

I ordered tickets but have not received them. What should I do?

It can take up to ten days for the US Postal service to deliver tickets, so please be patient. Incorrect billing or shipping information can sometimes slow down the ticket processing and delivery. In addition, please look back to the confirmation email sent to you by Telecharge, which will tell you the delivery option that you chose when you ordered your tickets. You may have requested that your tickets be held at the box office for pick up the date of the performance. If you think your tickets may have gotten lost, please call customer service at (212) 239-2969 (in NY) or (888) 268-2020 (outside NY).

I requested my tickets for “Box Office Hold” delivery. How do I get them?

Simply arrive at the box office with a Photo ID and, if possible, the credit card you used to purchase the tickets. Some box offices can have very long lines just prior to curtain, so try to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to showtime to ensure you're seated before it starts.

How can I cancel my ticket order?

If you have already completed your order, then it cannot be canceled - tickets are a final sale and are not refundable or exchangeable. If you have not entered payment information, you can stop your order at any time and start over.

What do I do if there is a problem with Telecharge or Ticketmaster?
