Tix for Kids

Tix for Kids

The New York Jets support a charitable ticket turn-back program with the United Way of New York City. Tix For Kids, a charitable ticket distribution program, was created by the New York Jets and United Way of New York City in 2003 to give season ticket holders an opportunity to donate their tickets to underprivileged children. This allows numerous children to experience the excitement of the NFL first-hand as many of them have never attended a professional football game.

United Way of New York City makes these donated tickets available to children and youth participating in their programs via community-based organizations throughout New York City, including Children's Aid Society, East Side House, Good Shepherd Services, Partnership with Children, Sports & Arts in Schools Foundation, and many others.

Log in to your My Jets Account at, click Manage My Tickets and select Donate To Charity. There is no charge for this service. You must make your donation three days prior to the day of the game to allow the United Way time to arrange for proper transportation. For example, for a 1 o’clock game on Sunday, the ‘donate to charity’ option would shut off on Wednesday at 2pm.


Tickets may be sent to the address below. Be sure to include your full name, address and day time phone number along with your tickets. To help us distribute tickets in an efficient manner please mail your envelope(s) back as far in advance as possible, but no later than two weeks prior to the game you are returning.

Upon receipt of your ticket donation, United Way will issue a written letter of confirmation recognizing your charitable donation for tax purposes.

Tickets to be donated should be sent to the following address:

C/o United Way of New York City
205 East 42nd Street, 12th Floor
New York, NY 10017
