Riot Games donates $10k each to 30 non-profit organisations

Drive took place as part of Riot X Arcane Progress Days event

The Riot Games Social Impact Fund has donated $10,000 in grant funding to 30 different non-profit organisations, as part of the Progress Days celebration.

The celebration ties into the release of Riot's Arcane Netflix series, which launched last week.

The publishers raised funds over the summer, and then selected the 30 from over 19,000 individual submissions. Two UK-based companies were included in the final list -- Spear Islington and Ape Action Africa.

"We're blown away by our players coming together to share their passion for so many important causes," Riot said in a post. "In addition to these grants, we will continue directing grant funding to more organisations that play an important role in players' local communities."

Riot has conducted several charity drives this year; back in April, the company contributed $1 million to Wings Fund to fuel games from marginalised developers.

It also raised $7 million for the Social Impact Fund from the sale of a limited edition League of Legends skin, which will be redistributed to Riot's chosen non-profit organisations and initiatives.

The 30 chosen organisations from the Progress Days celebration are:

  • APAE Brasil
  • Ape Action Africa
