MegaFans (Mobile eSports Gaming Fanatics), a San Diego area-based mobile-casual eSports platform, has completed its first charity fundraising event with the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) Foundation, as part of a series using the MegaFans eSports tournament platform. The first tournament ran through September.

The eSports tournament Series is being promoted to raise awareness and funds to go toward the IGDA Foundation’s Diversity Initiative, to improve the lives of independent game developers around the world.

Previously, MegaFans worked with the IGDA Foundation on the Stay in the Game Relief Fund which raised over $100,000 and MegaFans was the third-largest publicly active contributor.

“We are really grateful of MegaFans contribution to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the video game industry. The industry needs more companies like MegaFans to step up and demonstrate the importance of charitable giving, leadership, and community,” Nika Nour, Director of IGDA Foundation, said.
