The trend of charity gaming extends to unwanted or unplayed games. DonateGames, a nonprofit organization, accepts videogames as donations in exchange for tax-deductible receipts equal to the trade-in value the game might receive at retailers like GameStop.

According to Jake Hurst, volunteer business analyst for DonateGames, this business model empowers younger gamers with little to no funding the uncommon opportunity to get involved with charity. It also allows their parents to do a little spring-cleaning.

“It really appeals to the younger generation,” Hurst said. “But at the same time, the moms and dads love being able to get rid of some of these games that are taking up space sitting in their houses.”

Used or new games can also be purchased directly from the DonateGames online store, with all proceeds going toward the funding of rare disease research.
