EveryEventGives offers independent event planners and non-profit organizations the opportunity to sell tickets and give 50 cents of the fees for every ticket sold to the charity of the event host’s choice. The company has handled online ticketing for events in 24 states, D.C. and in Canada.

“Fundraising is a fact of life for most startups and I am very proud of the way the team met the challenge,” Wolff said. “Our growth goals are ambitious and this money will allow us to make a real run at becoming a big player in a national market.”
