The Pokémon Company Group Donates $5 Million to Organizations Around the World Following Pokémon GO Fest 2020

The Pokémon Company group, which includes The Pokémon Company International and its parent organization, The Pokémon Company, recently announced the intent to donate a minimum of $5 million USD following Pokémon GO Fest 2020. This donation is in addition to the $5 million USD minimum that its partners at Niantic, publisher and developer of Pokémon GO, also committed to give organizations following the event.

The Pokémon Company group's donation will benefit charitable nonprofit organizations around the world that improve the lives of children, which is a key pillar of the Pokémon brand's global philanthropic efforts now and in the future. A large portion of the organizations receiving funds from this donation were chosen due to their focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. As part of The Pokémon Company group's ongoing commitment to the Black community, this includes organizations supporting education and mentorship opportunities for Black children.

Below is the list of organizations around the world receiving funds from The Pokémon Company group following Pokémon GO Fest 2020. More organizations will be added once confirmed.

Love to see it! It's unfortunate that we need a company that creates imaginary monsters to pay for people to get help they need, but whatever works...
