Every year at Gen Con we donate a segment of the auction to charity. 100% of the money raised selling the items goes to the charity that Gen Con selected as the sponsored charity that year – you can see them on their Charity Partners page https://www.gencon.com/gen-con-indy/charity-partners. Here’s a history of the amounts raised by the auction and the convention’s charity that year. Other events, like Cardhalla, raise additional money so this is just a portion of the amount that generous gamers contributed to charity!
