A minimum of 20 tickets must be made available at 30-50% via our online ticketing platform. You must be a member of the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance or agree to pay a per-offer placement fee (please contact francese@philaculture.org for fee information).

    Can I restrict the events my organization sells through Funsavers?

    Yes. For example, you may want to specify that your Funsavers offer cannot be combined with other discounts, or you might want to limit the number of tickets or admissions sold to each customer.
