Our Partners

AKRacing is proud to partner with the following not-for-profit organisations. Partnering up with these gaming relevant organisations help AKRacing achieve their core objective of creating positive social impact in the community. AKRacing support's these charities in a number of different ways, including direct cash contributions, gift-in-kind donations, customer donations and volunteering.

 

GenerOZity is a guerilla popup charity event, bringing together a host of Australia's top gaming content creators from Twitch, YouTube and beyond in one live-streamed variety show. All takings and donations during the event go straight to Child's Play, a gaming focused charity that raises funds for games and toys in paediatric wards both Australia-wide and worldwide.

 

AKRacing’s support of GenerOzity has predominately been through the donation of chairs, to help GenerOzity generate proceeds. AKRacing's partners and affiliates also participate in this yearly chairty streaming event.
