Donate Games

Founded by the father whose son was battling a rare form of leukemia, Donate Games is a non-profit organization that was founded on the belief that people can change the world by simply donating their unwanted video games. All proceeds collected from the sales of the used video games go to helping children and their families along with raising awareness for rare and neglected disorders, or "orphan diseases," afflicting millions of young people across the globe -- such as rare cancers, rapid-aging disease, and neurological disorders.

But there is hope. By buying or donating a game, you help fund much-needed research to fight theses often overlooked diseases.

Here's how simple it is:


Step 1: Play a game. Love it. Finish it.

Step 2: Mail it to Donate Games and receive a tax-deductible receipt for your game

Step 3: Buy a different game from Donate Games

Step 4: Go back to Step 1

Donate games. Buy games. Save lives. Three easy steps. It really is that simple.

By operating efficiently and entirely with a volunteer staff, the organization can keep overhead low and ensure that proceeds from every sale at Donate will go to support those suffering from orphan diseases around the world, searching for cures, providing caring networks and easing suffering.

Everyone wins.
