Both! First and foremost, Humanitix is a ticketing platform. We operate like a for-profit business in that we don’t ask for donations, we sell tickets and generate revenue. However, we are a 100% for-purpose entity and a registered charity that donates 100% of profits to social impact projects. It’s a new model for effective altruism – we call it compassionate capitalism.
