As part of its wider research into technology-enabled giving, the Spring Giving programme worked with PlayMob – who promote “charity sponsored” micro-payments within digital games - to deliver an event looking at the potential of giving though gaming.

Taking place in Somerset House, central London, the event brought together charities, developers and commentators to gain insights into the potential of giving through gaming, and highlight key areas for development.

We were pleased to feature presentations from a range of practitioners and we welcomed an illustrious panel to share their thoughts and take questions from the audience. Michael Green is an economist and writer, and the author of the book Philanthrocapitalism, and Ian Livingstone and Andy Payne are widely respected games industry veterans.

The event closed by successfully matching up specific charities with a number of developers working on tech innovations which could help their cause.

And please check back soon to hear more on this area and others innovations related to tech-enabled giving.
