The IGDA Foundation is proud to announce its participation in One Gamer Fund, an initiative to benefit seven game-related charities.
We’re working with Able Gamers, Child’s Play, Games For Change, Global Game Jam, Stack-Up, and Take This to make a meaningful impact in our community. Each of these organizations is a 501(c)3 registered charity, and works to support gamers, or game developers, in an important way:
Able Gamers works to improve accessibility in video games so that everyone can have a great gaming experience.
Child’s Play improves the lives of children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters through the power of play.
Games for Change empowers game creators and social innovators to drive real-world change through games.
The Global Game Jam is a worldwide initiative, culminating in an event held every January, to introduce the joy of making games to individuals and communities around the world.
The IGDA Foundation works to support diversity and inclusivity in game development through its scholarships and other programs, increasing the funnel of diverse talent entering game development, helping companies create a more inclusive environment, and retaining diverse talent already in the industry.
Stack-Up supports military service members and veterans through their love of video games, bringing veterans to gaming events and providing video games to military servicemen around the world.
Take This works to educate, inform, and advocate for game developers and gamers about mental health issues.
