GrandCon Gives Back


Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world to host fundraising and gaming marathons in support of local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Every child deserves the hope and healing of children’s hospitals. With the help of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® in their community, children of all ages and backgrounds can receive treatment for every imaginable disease and injury—from asthma and broken bones to cancer and heart defects. Children’s hospitals are also on the front lines of research, education and outreach programs that keep millions of kids out of the hospital each year. Here in West Michigan, our Extra Life Guild plays for Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, raising funds to support over 20 different specialty programs.


Jasper’s Game Day was created in memoriam to a few young friends who lost their lives early to suicide. Folks around the country now gather once per year to play role-playing games and raise money for suicide awareness. Any donations to Jasper’s Game Day go to support local state chapters of the American Association of Suicidology.

You are able to support this cause at GrandCon by either purchasing “re-roll tickets”, and/or getting involved with charitable events specifically benefiting Jasper’s Game Day!

Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish® vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes. We believe a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us and inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.
