The AbleGamers Charity, which provides news and reviews on the accessibility of mainstream video game titles, as well as consultation on assistive technology, has announced the achievement of a huge fundraising milestone for the 2013 year, as they were able to raise $100,000 in donations, the most in the organizations history.

Through community-based fundraisers such as Minethon and PAX-E, corporate donations from the likes of Paradox and IndieGala, dozens of individual streamers, and an increasing awareness in the gaming and disability communities, AbleGamers is heading into 2014 looking to move the charity to another level.

Mark Barlet, President and Director of the AbleGamers Charity, had the following to say about the milestone.

“It’s been a truly amazing year.We have made so much progress over the course of 2013 in the areas of game accessibility. I’m so proud of our organization for all AbleGamers has been able to accomplish this year, but it’s all thanks to the generosity of our donors. Without them, the lifeblood of this organization, we wouldn’t be able to do any of the miraculous things you read about in the news. We’re extremely grateful and hope those who donated last year will remember us again in 2014.”

Heading into 2014, AbleGamers is looking forward to launching new technology, new partnerships with industry leaders, brand-new facilities for caretakers and more. With those goals, the AbleGamers Charity is looking for further donations for 2014, with COO and Outreach Chair Steve Spohn stating "To say we need financial support from the community now more than ever would be an understatement."
