Welcome to GFGC.

We’re a not-for-profit community that runs charity gaming events such as Nintendothon, GFGC Marathon, and more. We’re on a mission to create positive change in the world, and we need your help.

About us

Our goal is to build a community of content creators passionate about gaming and raising money for charity, to not only show that adolescents and young adults can have an impact in the world, but to also inspire and empower others to “game for global change“ as well.


When we host a charity fundraiser, it’s done through websites officially sanctioned by the charity. This means you can be 100% certain that your gracious donations will go directly to the people and areas of need that the charities work with.


GFGC organizes charity gaming livestreams several days in length called marathons. Whether it’s 24 hours or 120 hours, we seek to raise funds and awareness for charity and provide gaming entertainment in the process.


Our closeknit community is full of likeminded and altruistic gamers who want to positively make a change through marathons and other gaming events. We host many different events during the year for our community to connect.
