Do WABE and ATL PBA have a box office?

While we don’t have a box office, tickets to program-related events are a great way to extend the experience of programs you’re hearing and watching on WABE and ATL PBA and to strengthen your connection to this PBS station. Attending one of these ticketed events allows you to continue your journey of discovery – for example, by enjoying more exciting music from a new artist, or by hearing a fascinating lecture on the latest breakthroughs in medicine or science.


Are there extra perks when I donate for tickets?

YES! By attending station events, you also have the chance to interact with world-class musicians, station personnel and other members like you who are supporting Atlanta’s arts and cultural scene.


Is my donation for tickets tax-deductible?
Tickets are considered “thank you gifts.” For federal taxation purposes, the tax-deductible amount is your total donation to WABE and ATL PBA minus the fair market value of any thank-you gifts you received. Public Broadcasting Atlanta is the “doing business as” name of Atlanta Educational Telecommunications Collaborative.  A.E.T.C. is a charitable organization under IRS Code Section 501 (c) (3), and your donation is deductible to the full extent of the law.


Do I need to subscribe to the WABE and ATL PBA email newsletter to participate?

No, it’s not required. However, those who subscribe to the WABE and ATL PBA newsletters are notified of performances before they are offered on the website or television and radio. Sign up for WABE and  ATL PBA’s newsletters now.


Why haven’t I received my tickets yet?

Tickets are mailed separately from acknowledgment letters, and are usually sent out close to the event date. If you have not received your ticket close to the event, please call our Membership Hotline at 678-686-0321 to let us know.


Can I get a refund for tickets?
Donations for tickets are non-refundable. By pledging for tickets, you are making a charitable contribution to financially support this PBS station and play a role in fulfilling the mission of public media.
