Designing A Better Tomorrow – A Nite to Unite


Each year, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) Foundation brings together more than 600 members of the video game community to raise funds for scholarships and other critical education and digital learning programs at Nite to Unite (NTU).

It is a night to celebrate the many ways video games drive positive change in our society and transform kids’ lives. A night to honor leaders and visionaries who are making a profound difference through video games.  And, a night to raise funds in support of scholarships for the next generation of game makers and charitable organizations leveraging the power of interactive software.

The 2018 NTU honorees will be announced soon!



The ESA Foundation seeks to harness the collective power of interactive entertainment to create positive social impact in our communities and meaningful opportunities for America’s youth.
