MtG: NAMI’s mission is simple: we want to run charity events you’ll feel good about entering.
We plan to make this a reality by focusing on these three tenets:
Formats You Want
We know this only works if we run events you want to play in. With that in mind, we’ll be running tournaments in the formats that we’ve heard you want to play. Our current focus is Legacy – with major organizers dropping support for the format, we want to make sure you can put your collection to work in one of Magic’s most exciting formats.
When you enter one of our events, we want you to know exactly where your entry fee is going. The fact sheet for each of our tournaments will always include a breakdown of how the money from your entry fee will be distributed between the prize pool, the charity we’re supporting, and the costs associated with running a large event. Expect an upload after every event to showcase how much we raised, as well as a gallery of auction items and door prizes for our next event.
Supporting Reputable Charities
A charity tournament is only as good as the charity it supports. That’s why we’re proud to support the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization; its stated purpose is “to improve the lives of persons and their families living with serious mental illness.” You can find more information about their mission and activities on their website. NAMI is a highly reputable, financially responsible, and transparent charity, receiving fantastic grades from watchdog groups like Charity Navigator and Charity Watch as well as an accreditation from the BBB Wise Giving Alliance.
