This allowed us to prepare frozen meals for local seniors to purchase. We wouldn’t have been able to provide these services without this generous support."

  • "Being involved with Charitable Gaming for over 15 years, I can attest to the immeasurable impact that it has on Communities in Ontario. Grassroots organizations that struggle to qualify for other funding models are able to flourish; often expanding their services and programs and extending their reach. These funds are kept in our Communities and impact the lives of our neighbours and friends. Charitable Gaming undoubtedly strengthens the fabric of communities all over the Province."

Our Mission

Charitable Gaming. Community Good. We believe that Charitable Gaming can have a positive impact in your community, and that’s why it’s an ongoing source of grassroots funding for participating local charities and non-profits across Ontario.

Our charitable organizations partner with commercial operators in Charitable Gaming Centres to fundraise for their communities.

Our Contributions

At Charitable Gaming Centres, the biggest winners are local communities. To date, we’ve raised over $500,000,000 for thousands of participating local charitable organizations.

Our Volunteers

All of this is made possible through volunteerism at local gaming centres. Our member charitable organizations and their volunteers provide customer care, help promote events and share valuable knowledge about their charity and how the funding will be used.

Our Partners

Charitable Gaming was developed in collaboration with Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (representing charities and non-profits), Commercial Gaming Association Ontario (representing commercial operators)  to deliver a new gaming entertainment experience to preserve and enhance funding for participating local charitable organizations. Working together, we have been able to sustain and grow the charitable industry while ensuring a direct portion of the funds goes back to local communities.
