Jagex is proud of its charitable giving history, with regular internal staff fundraising, as well as record breaking community fundraising for some incredible causes.
This year we'll be working alongside CPSL Mind, The Prince's Trust, and YMCA Right Here on a local, national and international level, with a target of raising £150,000 to support their programmes. Our three chosen charities all work tirelessly to support mental health awareness - something we're very passionate about.
Throughout 2017 we'll be running a series of in-game and real-world events to raise funds for our chosen charities, ensuring that you guys are at the forefront of our fundraising efforts. Through live streams, dedicated in-game events and more, we'll work alongside you to make a real difference.
Included in this is our involvement in the Prince's Trust career introduction programme, Get Started in Games Design, which will see young people participate in game design workshops, hosted right here at Jagex HQ.
We'll also be actively working, and financially supporting CPSL Mind's 'Stop Suicide' campaign, as well as supporting YMCA's Right Here ‘Find, Get, Give' initiative. This programme promotes finding and getting help, and giving feedback, on mental health issues for those aged 13-25 years old and will see Jagex assisting in the development of a mental health networking app.
We'll soon be launching a JustGiving page and sharing more details about the various activities and events planned. Together, we can raise much-needed funds for these three vital charities.
