Since 2017 the 501(c)3 non-profit has directly improved the lives of more than 100,000 people, and indirectly millions more, across 6 continents! Since 1977 our accessible research and evidence-in-practice supported community programs have improved the quality of life and bio-psycho-social functioning of participants for many thousands of people from ages 2 through senior adults, and everyone in between.

    ROLE-PLAYING GAME MUSEUM

    Depending on donations and volunteer hours, we hope to have the new RPG Museum available by the end of 2022, or early 2023. This is costs us a small fortune to make the property secure enough, and environmentally controlled enough, to fully protect the huge RPG historical collection we have, and make it safe to open to the public. This costs to protect this rare historical collection, and the insurance for a museum collection of unique, hard-to-find, or irreplaceable items is extremely high. We need you donations more than ever just to cover the insurance to make our collection available to the public. We have thousands of items related to the history of all role-playing game formats, many of which are available no where else in the world! Additional donations will enable us to turn this into a fully experiential learning hands-on museum, not just a rare collection. How far we can take it, depends on you. You can help us make the museum better available to the public sooner by donating today!
