Thanks to the amazing people at our 100% volunteer-run organization, our programs have been able to directly improve the bio-psycho-social functioning and quality of life for diverse populations all ages around the world for more than 100,000 people since 2017.
Our programs are supported by over 45 years of research and evidence-in-practice our running open community programs since 1977.
For every dollar you donate, our programs directly improve the quality of life of 3+ people. This means that for donations of just $100 you help us directly improve the lives of 300+ people, and thousands of others indirectly. For every $1,000+ donation, you help improve the lives of more than 3,000 people!
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit charity, so you donations may very well be tax deductible.
You make it possible for us to bring the benefits of role-playing games to the community.
