Organizers of the 2014 Game Developers Conference are announcing a partnership with the Indie Giving charity effort for the second year running, donating 30 GDC Indie Games Summit tickets to the 2014 Indie Giving event.

As part of the agreement with Indie Giving, which is run by FGL head and indie community veteran Chris Hughes, generous indie game makers will get an exclusive opportunity to buy the now sold-out IGS pass.

By doing so they agree to volunteer on an onsite project just before GDC 2014, with 100 percent of their Indie Giving package price going directly to the Hands On Bay Area nonprofit and its partners.

Everyone who signs up for the Indie Giving package will come together on the Sunday before GDC 2014, March 16th, to work together on a humanitarian service project in the Bay Area.

Indie Giving package buyers will also have a chance to attend the Independent Games Summit on Monday, March 17th and Tuesday, March 18th at GDC 2014 - the only way you can get this sold-out pass at this point.

By contributing, indies will collectively be contributing over $10,000 to the Hands On Bay Area nonprofit and its partners. Those who pitch in and buy an Indie Giving Package get transportation and lunch on the Sunday volunteering day, plus other perks to come.

A limited amount of Indie Giving packages are now available via the organization's official website - and Game Developers Conference itself takes place in the Moscone Center in San Francisco from Monday, March 17th to Friday, March 21th, with more information available on the official GDC website.

Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech.

It can sometimes be hard to commit so early to GDC monetarily which subsequently makes you miss out on the IGS pass. Honestly, this is a great initiative. It helps out the local community, people who couldn't otherwise make GDC, and spreads the indie love!

Very much looking forward to being a part of this.
