$1 MILLION + DONATED ANNUALLY
Now entering their fourth year as a valued Autism Speaks partner, GameStop has demonstrated an incredible level of employee engagement – at store level, among their unique, regional “Giving Power Ambassadors” – and right through to the home office staff and management in Grapevine, TX. In 2019, they will continue this innovative, highly engaged approach and will once again use their “Trading for Charity” program, allowing customers to further show their support for Autism Speaks by donating their used smartphones, consoles and games (trade-in $ value) to Autism Speaks along with their point-of-sale campaign taking in-store donations at check-out.
This year’s campaign funds raised will benefit charities that teach digital technology skills to individuals with autism. Recipients include Autism Speaks® and its NXT GEN Coders Program, and nonPareil Institute. The NXT Gen Coders program was launched last year, funded by GameStop and administered by Autism Speaks, and awarded fourteen recipients comprised of organizations, schools and institutions that teach basic digital literacy and critical coding and computer programming skills to people with autism of all ages. See the 2018 World Autism Month NXT Gen coders grant beneficiaries here.
