Give a concert ticket to someone less privileged.
The gap between the rich and the poor is growing all over the world. In Belgium too, enjoying culture is becoming an unaffordable luxury for many. AB believes that culture is a basic necessity. This is why we collect money through the ‘Friends of AB’ fund to help those who are less privileged to enjoy concerts in AB.
We ask music lovers with a few cents to spare to donate to music fans who are struggling to make ends meet. Your donations go directly into the fund. AB is working with various partner organisations to offer free or discounted concert tickets to those who would not normally be able to afford them. We strongly believe that, with a little solidarity, we can make live music accessible to everyone. Will you help?
How can you help?
1. Support us with a donation.
You can donate online or via bank transfer. Donations of 40 euros and over receive a tax certificate and therefore a tax deduction:
- You can donate online via the Koning Boudewijnstichting on this page. You can choose between a one-off or recurring donation.
- You can set up a bank transfer to account number BE10 0000 0000 0404 with the structured reference +++017/1560/00077+++.
2. Add a donation of your choice to your ticket purchase.
When you buy a concert ticket, you can add a donation of your choice to your order. By doing this you directly support the fund and give someone else the opportunity to attend a concert at AB.
3. Donate your cup deposit during a concert at AB.
For every cup you return during a concert at AB without asking for your deposit back, we donate €0.10 to the fund.
4. Share this message.
Share the love! Share this page with your friends and family so that they can support the fund too.
What happens to your donation?
AB works with partner organisations to reach as many people living in poverty as possible. Via Globe Aroma, Fedasil Zaventem, Hobo, PasPartoe, Netwerk Tegen Armoede and Brussels Platform Armoede, free or discounted concert tickets are distributed to those who are eligible. Moreover, AB and its partners regularly organise guided tours or other activities to welcome those less privileged as warmly as possible.
Your donations pay for solidarity concert tickets. AB would like to thank you very much for this.
