The event supports the Prevent Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to the early detection and prevention of cancer.

One hundred percent of donations go directly to the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Donations can be made during the event at GamesDoneQuick.com.

Since 2010, Games Done Quick has raised over $20 million for charitable organizations around the world, such as AbleGamers and Doctors Without Borders. Last year more than 2,000 people attended AGDQ 2019, while the Twitch live stream peaked at over 200,000 concurrent viewers. More than $2.39 million was raised during the event.
