As an organisation, one of the cornerstones of the IGDA Foundation is supporting the mission of the IGDA, and the most obvious way we can do that is by offering financial support to the projects being undertaken by the IGDA community around the world. We do this by offering grants to Chapters and Special Interest Groups of the IGDA, in order to assist with specific projects that will be of benefit to developers who are part of those groups.
This allows us to offer support in a meaningful way, without having to decide what problems need to be tackled. The community is able to bring specific initiatives to us, and from there we can provide aid. Whether that means assisting IGDA Boston to replace a burnt out projector bulb or providing funds for IGDA Vietnam to purchase a camcorder so the the content of their meetings could be shared with remote members (as well as the global IGDA community).
Grant applications are considered in relation to our principles of charitable, scientific and educational work. If you have a project that you believe aligns with the IGDA Foundation’s values, contact us to discuss the application process.
