Gen Con announces its 2023 Charity Partners
Gen Con has announced its 2023 charity partners, Indy Reads and Game Pathways! Both organizations will receive proceeds from the convention’s 2023 fundraising efforts, including longstanding charity events such as the popular “Cardhalla.” In addition, both groups will also receive promotional marketing and table space at the convention to connect with attendees and promote their wonderful organizations.
Indy Reads builds literacy, English language, and job readiness skills to empower adults and families to reach their full potential. For nearly 40 years, we’ve worked toward a vision of 100% literacy for all. Current statistics show that 1 in 6 adults in Indiana read at or below a fifth-grade level. Through its in-person and virtual Community Classrooms and workforce certification programs, Indy Reads helps adult learners increase their literacy and English language proficiency, prepare for their High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma, and build the workforce skills to improve their employability and advancement potential. Indy Reads proudly serves adults of all literacy skill levels, including the most beginning-level.
Game Pathways seeks to improve representation and diversity in the tabletop gaming industry by increasing student awareness of career paths, introducing students to industry professionals, and working with game companies to engage under-represented groups. It is a nonprofit organization founded by industry professionals who care about inclusivity, creativity, and celebrating new voices!
