Our largest single donation - record $4 million to The Life You Can Save

On 1 May, our co-founders Adam and Josh surprised The Life You Can Save team by revealing our latest donation - a record $4 million. Adam brought out the cheque on stage at Blackbird’s Sunrise festival during a panel on building ethical brands. This marks our single largest donation, and also the largest unrestricted donation The Life You Can Save has ever received.

“Partnering with The Life You Can Save helps us ensure our hard work and profits are flowing to the most effective charities in the world, achieving our mission of turning resented ticket booking fees into a powerful force for good in the world,” said Josh.

With a global presence and offices in the United States, Australia and New Zealand, this brings the total to $10.5 million donated to charities to date. This latest donation underscores our expanding philanthropic impact - our booking fee profits are supporting a broad range of initiatives from education, health, sustainability to humanitarian efforts.


The Life You Can Save is a non-profit known for recommending research-based charities working on interventions across the multidimensional factors of poverty. It was co-founded by Australian philosopher Peter Singer in 2013, and it has since raised more than US$100 million in donations for its recommended non-profits. The funds from Humanitix will boost the organisation’s operational capacities, enhancing its ability to raise even more funds for its recommended charities.


“This unrestricted funding from Humanitix is transformative for The Life You Can Save,” said Andrea La Mesa, co-CEO of the organisation.

“For every dollar donated to our operations, we are able to multiply that by more than ten times for our recommended non-profits. We will use these funds to expand our reach to new markets, unlocking generosity globally and lifting more people out of poverty.”

With Humanitix’s catalytic, unrestricted donation, The Life You Can Save can multiply life-changing impact by more than ten times for its recommended charities. For example, donating $4 million to The Fred Hollows Foundation, one of The Life You Can Save’s recommended non-profits, could restore eyesight to over 50,000 people with curable blindness who cannot afford surgery. This substantial contribution not only exemplifies our commitment to reshaping business norms - applying the rules of business to create as much impact as possible - but also amplifies our philanthropic impact on a global scale.

It goes without saying that this life-saving impact is only possible because of you, our community of event hosts, ticket buyers and supporters. We know we always say this but it’s true - “we” at Humanitix have managed to reach this huge milestone but only because you continue to choose us, so THANK YOU. We’re so grateful to be on this crazy ride with you - going where no ticketing platform has been before.
