The Riot Games Social Impact Fund was created in 2019 as an independent entity and is structured in a way that it is used to reach their area of focus to create a positive social impact.

"The Social Impact Fund allows us to be more strategic with how we invest, deploy funding, and partner with a wider variety of organizations in pursuit of accelerating positive social change."

While the fund was created in 2019, Riot Games have been involved in charity events in the past, raising over $15 million to more than 25 different causes around the world.

Players can expect to see a new skin later this year, with all proceeds going to the fund.

With the release of Valorant and many more Riot titles to come, we may see the introduction of these games into the fund allowing for everyone apart of the Riot Games community to contribute to the fund.

"The good we can do together is just getting started, and we can’t wait to see where this road leads us."
