Gaming for Good: Backbone’s Partnership with Beam

We believe in the transformative power of gaming. It’s not just about leaderboards and trophies but also about the genuine connections and communities built along the way. Today, we’re thrilled to announce our new partnership with Beam and spotlight the incredible nonprofits you can support with a purchase from Backbone*.

Meet Our Charitable Allies:
Gamers Outreach: Gaming has the power to bring joy, especially when it’s most needed. Through Gamers for Giving, a project by Gamers Outreach, we’re supporting their program that employs video games to bring comfort and entertainment to hospitalized families.

Games for Change: Harnessing the immersive nature of games, Games for Change is on a mission to drive positive societal transformation. By collaborating with diverse institutions and developers, they curate engaging game arcades and design curricula, demonstrating the power of gaming beyond mere recreation.

Ablegamers Foundation: Everyone deserves to game. In collaboration with the Ablegamers Foundation, we’re addressing the challenges faced by gamers with disabilities. Through our partnership, we’re working towards shattering boundaries, enhancing inclusivity and ensuring every gamer feels seen and heard.

Surfrider Foundation: Oceans are the lungs of our planet, and with the Surfrider Foundation, we’re taking strides to protect them. Their tireless efforts to reduce plastic pollution, secure fair beach access and promote coastal preservation align perfectly with our vision of a cleaner, more sustainable future.

And More! Visit our community impact page to learn more about all our supported nonprofit organizations.
