Bungie Foundation FAQ
What is the Bungie Foundation?
The Bungie Foundation is our studio’s official charity. Its mission is to reduce distress and suffering in children through entertainment. Through our incredible partnerships with Seattle Children’s Hospital, Make-A-Wish, and our generous community, we have been able to help hundreds of families in need, and support the community around us in ways big and small, but you may not know that we also often use the profits directly from our Bungie Store merchandise sales to help The Bungie Foundation’s mission reach even more people in need.
Your Bungie Store Purchase Helps Make A Big Difference
A portion of every sale in our official online merchandise shop supports the Bungie Foundation. The exact percentage varies, based on the number of programs we are currently supporting, the needs we identify each year, and current events that may require us to act outside of our annual planning process.
Here are just a few of the ways your store purchases have impacted the lives of children in need through The Bungie Foundation, as described by some of our amazing partners:
“I can’t thank you enough for all of the special gifts you give and help facilitate for our kids. Because of you, we are able to grant spectacular wishes! They are so special to our kids and their families. Thank you so much!” – Jessie, Make-A-Wish Staff Member
“Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your iPads for Kids Program. Our patients are often here for extended periods of time that can be long, boring, and even depressing…By having the iPads available, it has given them entertainment, a sense of normalcy, and an age-appropriate way to escape. We have seen a reduction in stress for them and their families.” – Jackie, Seattle Children’s Hospital Staff Member
“Thank you so much for participating in Men In Kilts! You really brought enthusiasm to it! Bungie raised a LOT of awareness for the House, in addition to raising enough money to sponsor more than a year of housing for a family.” – Vanessa, Ronald McDonald House Seattle Staff Member
“Your fundraising efforts are touching, heart-warming, and extraordinary. You and your team created an amazing platform for change, and from all of us here at Hopelink – Thank You!" – Ezzy, Hopelink Staff Member
“Thank you so much for everything you did to make our Benefit so special. The Bungie Foundation’s generous donation will definitely help us continue the fight against childhood cancer!” – Dawn, Brian Morden Foundation Founder
