Members of games industry charity GamesAid can now put forward organisations for possible support this year.
This process opened on Monday August 4th, and will close on Monday August 18th. Any member of the charity may put an organisation forward.
Charities put forward should focus on helping disadvantaged or disabled children or young people, have an annual turnover of 5m and have administrative costs of less than 30 per cent.
In order to nominate a charity, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org the organisation’s name, charity number, your reason for nominating and your contact details.
Once nominations close a long list will be formed and between September 1st and 8thmembers will be asked to vote. The five charities that receive the most votes will receive one fifth of GamesAid’s total funds.
