GDC 2017 donates Summit passes to Indie Giving charity

Once again, GDC 2017 organizers reaffirm their partnership with the Indie Giving charity effort by donating 30 GDC 2017 Indie Games Summit tickets - contribute now to get your pass!

The 2017 Game Developers Conference is just month away, and today organizers are proud to announce that for the fifth year running, 30 GDC Indie Games Summit tickets will be donated to the 2017 Indie Giving initiative in partnership with the Indie Giving charity.

As always, the purpose of this partnership with Indie Giving, which continues to be overseen by FGL chief and indie community veteran Chris Hughes, is to give back to people in need -- and give indie game makers who are generous with their time an opportunity to attend GDC at an affordable rate.

With that in mind, GDC officials have reserved 30 of the sold-out Indie Games Summit passes for purchase through the Indie Giving package program. To purchase these $329 packages, you must agree to give back to the local community by volunteering to participate in an onsite project before GDC 2017.

Here's how it works: Everyone who signs up for the Indie Giving package will meet ahead of GDC 2017 on Sunday, February 26th, to pitch in together on a humanitarian service project in the Bay Area.

Those who participate after purchasing an Indie Giving Package get transportation and lunch on the Sunday volunteering day, plus other perks to come. In addition, any remaining funds left after Indie Giving is completed will be donated to charity.

Indie Giving package buyers will also get a pass to attend the Independent Games Summit on February 27th and 28th at GDC 2017 - making this charitable program the only way you can get this sold-out pass at this point.

To get yours, head over to the Indie Giving website now -- supplies are limited!
