CATS is the only organization of it’s kind committed to:

  • Creating a more inclusive community through shared cultural experiences
  • Reducing the rate of recidivism with those clients currently involved with CATS partner agencies
  • Creating a fan base and future patrons for cultural events throughout the Bay Area


CATS was established in September 2004. Based on the very successful BASS Tickets Foundation, CATS provides positive socialization opportunities to disadvantaged individuals through participation in local cultural events.

To accomplish this, CATS partners with local social service agencies working with less advantaged populations and the many cultural/ recreational entities in the Bay Area.

CATS represents a unique niche in the non-profit world.  CATS is the only organization of it's kind which works the diversity of populations serving disadvantaged.  CATS works with these populations each and every day of the year.  Working with agency staff, CATS creates, assists, and helps to implement recreational programming.  More often than not, such programming does not exist prior to the agency’s partnership with CATS.

CATS’s partnership with venues is just as unique. CATS provides much needed audience support to large and small venues alike (from 60-45,000 seat venues). These venues are committed to a diversified audience and see CATS as the only way to ensure their audience is representative of the entire Bay Area community.







The home of the San Francisco Giants -

AT&T Park, San Francisco


Youth and counselors from Lutheran Social Services - Bernal Gateway Apartments stand proudly in front of AT&T Park with their tickets to a San Francisco Giants game.  These tickets were provided through the partnership between the San Francisco Giants and CATS.



Community Access Ticket Service, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), strengthens communities by including under-served populations in the arts and other cultural events. 

CATS accomplishes this with your generous donation of tickets and financial support and the cooperation of staff working with local social-service agencies.
