Giant's next free charity event: Gaming for Good

Gaming for Good has become a real hot topic in the charity sector. 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

But few fully understand how to take advantage of this exciting new channel and everything it has to offer. It can be a daunting prospect starting out, with many potential pitfalls.

Giant Digital's free quarterly learning events are specifically designed for third sector digital and marketing professionals. We bring together charities and sector experts for an afternoon of inspiration and networking in an informal setting.

Our event will demystify the world of gaming and live streaming, with advice from experts, examples from charities already making their mark, and tips on how to start, or successfully progress your gaming for good journey.

We’ll be sharing:

  • An overview of gaming for good and some charity success stories
  • How to get started with your own gaming strategy
  • Tips for finding and building your online community
  • When, where and how to make your fundraising ‘ask’
  • Opportunities to encourage long term charity support

If you’d like to know more about the world of gaming and live streaming and how your charity could get involved, then join us at this unmissable free charity event in London on the afternoon of 14th March.
