The Spiel Foundation



The Spiel Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to donating quality board and card games to children's hospitals and senior citizen's centers.

We hope to bring a few hours of enjoyment to kids and seniors in need, five games at a time.

Each year, we assemble bundles of five games from a list of recommended games and donate these bundles to organizations that fit our mandate

The group is funded by donations from individuals and game publishers from around the world.

What can you do to help?

Suggest games for our Recommended Lists: Children's Hospitals & Senior Centers

Volunteer to find places in need of donations.

Donate to The Spiel Foundation as an individual.
Sponsor The Spiel Foundation as business.
