The AbleGamers Foundation, also known as AbleGamers Charity, is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit public charity that aims to improve the overall quality of life for those with disabilities through the power of video games.
Video games allow individuals with disabilities to experience situations that may be difficult or limited in the real world, provide social networking opportunities to maintain mental and emotional health, and participate in one of the world’s largest pastimes.
Our Impact On The Industry
AbleGamers creates opportunities that enable play in order to combat social isolation, foster inclusive communities, and improve the quality of life for people with disabilities.
By highlighting the experiences of players with disabilities, sharing the feedback of our Player Panel, and working with industry leaders and developers to create more accessible gaming technology and experiences, we’ve made a long-lasting impact on the gaming world.
We’ve worked with Blizzard, Activision, Xbox, PlayStation, and so many more. We’ve made a mark on the developers of major games like Call of Duty, Overwatch, and World of Warcraft, just to name a few. We work within the industry to enable developers to create adaptive gaming solutions, design more inclusive games, and create events that are accessible to people with disabilities.
