Is the Foundation a nonprofit organization? Yes. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization designated by the Internal Revenue Code. As of 2009,
Do you have chapter organizations? No. The Foundation is located in Harpers Ferry WV and does not have chapters. Our research and fundraising efforts, however, stretch across the country and around the world. And through our AbleGamers program, supporters hold events in their local areas to help raise funds and awareness for our work. To join AbleGamers and find an event in your area, visit AbleGamers.com
How much of the money donated actually goes to research? To date, 96 percent of all donations to the Foundation have been allocated directly to our programs.
How can I make a donation? Donations are gladly accepted by mail, by telephone and online. For more information, see the Support AGF section of our Web site.
Can I make a donation in honor or in memory of someone? Absolutely. For more information, see the Support AGF section of our Web site.
What is a corporate matching gift and how can I make one? Many large corporations have matching gift programs and will match your donation to a charitable organization. It's an easy way to double or even triple your personal contributions to The AbleGamers Foundation. You should talk to your human resources representative to find out if your company has such a program and how you can participate. More information is also available in the Support AGF section of our Web site.
What kinds of fundraisers have you held? We have been – and will likely continue to be – the beneficiary of several kinds of fundraisers. These include Accessibility events, benefit dinners and many others.
Can I come to a fundraiser? When a fundraiser is open to the general public, we make every effort possible to alert members of the AbleGamers community and others who might be interested in attending. Because the purpose of our special events is to help fund our programmatic efforts, however, we are not able to offer free admission or to otherwise subsidize attendance. Can I volunteer? We do have volunteer and internship opportunities from time to time, which are listed on our Web site as they become available. For more information, visit the Volunteers and Interns section of our Web site.
I wrote to the Foundation. When will I hear back? As the Foundation has grown, the volume of mail we receive – both electronically and via post – has also grown tremendously. Today, the cost of responding has become overwhelming and is out of line with our mission to allocate resources to game accessibility, not administrative procedures. As such, we cannot promise to respond to all unsolicited mail as we have attempted to do in the past. If you made a donation (either electronically or via post) and did not receive a response, your gift most likely did not reach us. Please email us at
