The Impact We've Had
“Welcome to the Charitable Gaming, Community Good website. Charitable Gaming has been a cornerstone in assisting local charities in communities for decades. Our goal is to raise awareness of these on-going efforts in communities all across Ontario. I invite you to visit the various pages on this site to learn more about the impact and how it is made possible."
- Lynn Cassidy, Executive Director, OCGA
Charitable Gaming. Community Good. We believe that charitable gaming can have a positive impact in your community, and that’s why it's an ongoing source of grassroots funding for local charities and non-profits across Ontario.
Our charitable organizations partner with commercial operators in charitable gaming centres to fundraise for their communities.
At charitable gaming centres, the biggest winners are local communities. To date, we’ve raised over $300,000,000 for more than 2,200 local charitable organizations.
All of this is made possible through volunteerism at local gaming centres. Our member charitable organizations and their volunteers provide customer care, help promote events and share valuable knowledge about their charity and how the funding will be used.
Charitable Gaming was developed in collaboration with Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (representing charities and non-profits), Commercial Gaming Association Ontario (representing commercial operators) and the government (Ontario Lottery and Gaming) to deliver a new gaming entertainment experience to preserve and enhance funding for local charitable organizations. Working together, we have been able to sustain and grow the charitable industry while ensuring a direct portion of the funds goes back to local communities.
