DONATE NOW: Mythic+ Charity Pro-Am 2022
It’s time for the 2022 Mythic+ Charity Pro-Am! The action starts at 9am PDT / 6pm CEST over on the Team Liquid Twitch Channel on July 30th. Don’t miss out!
We want to say a big thank you to everyone that has worked hard to make this event happen, including our players for participating and our broadcasters for putting on what is surely to be an amazing show. Most importantly, we would like to thank our sponsors Twitch, Blizzard, and Overwolf - the Developers of CurseForge. Without their generosity and support, this event would not have been possible.
But the most important part of the Mythic+ Charity Pro-Am is the amazing charitable causes that our teams are battling on behalf of. These 6 non-profit organizations are doing incredible work with a strong focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives - causes we are very passionate about, and we are so proud to be able to support them. Our sponsors have made it possible for us to provide a massive $25,000.00 prize pool, 100% of which will be donated to the 6 represented charities. The amount each charity will earn depends on how well their teams place in the tournament!
But we can do more! Below you will find information on each of the organizations, the teams representing them, and information on how to donate directly to support their missions. Join forces with your favourite World of Warcraft players to help support these causes by contributing a donation today!
*Note: all of the represented charities are 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organizations, and any donations made are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
