Hundreds of gamers and thousands of donors worldwide participated in this year’s event, raising an astounding $2M. Proceeds raised will support Bungie Foundation’s iPads for Kids program as well as Humanitarian Aid and Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity initiatives.

One such humanitarian aid effort has been in response to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. As a result, an incredible $120,000 from the proceeds raised from Game2Give will be divided equally to benefit the non-profits Direct Relief and International Rescue Committee. These humanitarian aid organizations provide life-saving support to communities impacted by the conflict in Ukraine, including over 164 tons of medical aid and refugee assistance.

Game2Give is a forward-thinking fundraising event that unites top gaming, content creators, streamers, and corporations with a passion for the digital space to create positive change and raise significant funds to make this world a better place for all.

We’re grateful to the entire gaming community for rising to this momentous occasion, both those who fundraised and who supported their favorite streamers through their donations. Our highest individual fundraiser, Trials Report, raised a whopping $78,133, and our highest fundraising team, Garrison Community, raised an impressive $21,350. The event also received support from an impressive list of content creators, including Tamsin WoodT1Riot,  and Leopard.

What’s next for Bungie Foundation? Stay tuned for details on Bungie Day in July 2022 and the fourth annual Game2Give in November 2022. And check back regularly to their social channels for impact reports on how these incredible funds will be put to work.

Game2Give is a testament to how technology can bring us together and connect us to those we could not otherwise reach. Organizers invite anyone interested in creating change to take part and make a significant change.
