Where to find: tabletop RPG (and D&D) related charities!

This list of tabletop RPG (and D&D) related charities is here to help you find both some awesome resources and some great projects and causes to support when you can!

My goal with this tabletop RPG charity list:

Donating money, time, or materials to benefit others

When you are able to donate, these charities are great places to consider, especially if you are passionate about both tabletop RPGs and the cause that benefits (education, inclusivity, health, etc). A donation of money or time makes a big difference in the lives of others and can create a bigger impact as you combine your efforts with others through a charity.

Several charities also provide books and game materials to players as part of their mission, so donating your own materials from a recent publication you have made or a book you have bought can be another way to help support both one of these organizations and either a creator you want to support or your own work at the same time.

Charities as an alternative gift or as a group gift

A nice alternative gift that you can “buy” for someone is a donation to a charity in their name or in the name of a group.  

A nice alternative gift that you can “buy” for someone is a donation to a charity in their name or in the name of a group.

As an individual gift, you would pick a charity that you think that person would like and then make a donation in their name (or even their tabletop RPG character’s name).

You could also go in as a group with your tabletop RPG players, agreeing to forgo gifts around a holiday to instead have each player put $10 towards a single donation in the name of your adventuring party. 

Several organizations also run or support live streams for charity, which can be a great opportunity for your tabletop RPG group to get involved with OR you could gift someone money to donate during a charity stream they are looking forward to so they can participate in the game (often, donations during a game let you affect rolls or events).

Utilizing charities as a resource

Several of these charities provide a resource to individuals who would benefit from a support group, individuals who have a disability, teachers who need classroom resources, students who need educational assistance, and more. If you are in need of some help or are looking for an organization that may be able to support a cause you are passionate about, this list can help you find them.
