Gaming for Good: Experiences and Opportunities

On March 14th 2023 Giant Digital were delighted to hold our ‘Gaming for Good’ free learning event in London. We had a fantastic turnout after being completely over-subscribed, with 55 organisations joining us to learn more about this hot topic.

Tips and success stories

During the afternoon, attendees were able to explore the various gaming strategies employed by non-profit organisations.

Topics included how to make effective fundraising requests and how to get started with their own gaming strategy. We also covered tips on how to establish and grow your online community and opportunities to cultivate long-term support for your charity.

With the help of our brilliant speakers, we were able to showcase some fascinating success stories from pioneering charities including charity: water, The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, Tiltify and Imperial War Museum.

What does gaming offer charities?

In light of the current financial crisis, many charities are looking for new ways to attract and engage supporters, and the world of gaming is seen as the next big opportunity. Gaming and live streaming can offer charities:

  • Access to new, hard to reach, audiences
  • The means to develop and nurture an online supporter community
  • New revenue streams and fundraising opportunities
  • A wider network to cross-promote to
