Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

The IGA currently provides gaming groups and online gamers a place to congregate and space to play on. We have hopes to expand to local communities and sponsor local tournaments, organize amateur online gaming competitions, spaces to play games at and scholarships to help those studying something that could help further gaming have less of a financial burden in doing so. The IGA became a 501 (c) (3) public charity in January 2016 because our programs support community growth, help to foster community good and because of our purpose to help organize and develop gaming as a whole and help help to handle stress and move forward in their lives.

We want to work with local communities and develop programs locally as well as national and international programs. Our officers have been working their own local markets and nationally to try to find groups to help promote our mission and to further the cause of helping people get access to gaming, game safely and enjoy life more.

We are currently only able to fulfill internet based programs at this time. It is our hope that as the group expands we can start up local programs as mentioned in our previous responses.

We will use attendance at our events and numbers of people using our online services as a measure for success.

We have explained this in our previous responses.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
