Electronic Arts Donates $1 Million To Charity in Celebration of Players


Electronic Arts has established a new charity campaign, called Play to Give, with a $1 million dollar donation. The charity kicks off on June 12 at the EA Play event in Los Angeles.


Here at EA, we’re so excited to be kicking off EA PLAY with all of you!

We wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate the global gaming community and give back to organizations fostering a better world. So starting June 12, we are launching five in-game challenges through our Play to Give program and will be donating a total of $1 million to these five organizations to honor you:




National Center for Women & Information Technology


These organizations give back to our player communities, support a more inclusive environment in videogames and help support and foster future game-makers. We’re excited to support them!

You can help celebrate Play to Give by joining any of these in-game challenges starting this Sunday:
Battlefield 4™ and Battlefield™ Hardline

Earn a Gold Battlepack by providing supplies to your teammates in need. As a community,Battlefield 4 players are challenged with getting a 45 million total re-supply score and Battlefield Hardline players are challenged with getting a 5 million re-supply score from June 12-17. By achieving either of those goals, contributing players will get rewarded with an extra Gold Battlepack via Battlelog.

Players who complete any multiplayer match from June 12-14 can participate in the 3X Score Event, earning triple score and credits.
