ESA Foundation
21st Annual Nite to Unite - For Kids

The video game industry’s annual fundraising gala and celebration, Nite to Unite (NTU), will be held on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco.

Each year NTU inspires us, honors individuals who are driving social impact using video games, and showcases the power of the video game industry beyond just entertainment. The event will also raise funds to sustain the efforts of the ESA Foundation:

  • Improving the lives of children utilizing video game technology;
  • Providing scholarships for women and minorities studying computer science and interactive arts and sciences;
  • Enhancing STEAM education by leveraging video games!


Your support is critical for the ESA Foundation to fulfill its mission to award scholarships to aspiring game developers, encourage diversity in STEAM fields, and make a difference in the lives of kids through the power of video games and the technologies that power them.
