The UK games industry can nominate charities to receive thousands of pounds from GamesAid, later this month.
Between August 17th and August 28th, GamesAid members can put forward organisations they feel are deserving of receiving some of the funds it has raised.
Only members of GamesAid are able to nominate charities – it is free to join.
The exact figure has not been announced, but it’s expected to be higher than last year’s 438,000.
To nominate a charity, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the organisation’s name, charity number, reason for nomination and your contact details.
To be eligible, charities need to help disadvantaged and disabled children and young people, should have an annual turnover of under 5m and less than 30 per cent admin costs.
Following the nomination process, GamesAid members will be asked to vote from a list of nominees between September 7th and September 14th.
Last year, GamesAid raised 438,000, with seven charities receiving 62,571 each. These wereAccuro, Lifelites, MAPS, Special Effect, Jigsaw 4U, Safe At Last and Action for Kids
