about gramble foundation

The Gramble Foundation aims to improve one billion lives by reinventing the way people donate to charity – namely, via Gramble and its partners. The Gramble Foundation is a legally registered Dutch charitable foundation and is a beneficiary of Gramble World BV (the parent entity of Gramble), and in that capacity receives an annual percentage of Gramble’s revenue to distribute to good causes.

The Foundation works with organizations, institutions, initiatives, and projects that support charity in the broadest sense, whether they’re seeking to improve the planet itself, or life for those on it. Gramble believes that there are enough people with the willpower and the vision to achieve great deeds, but these people are not getting the material support they need and providing financial support to these visionaries is the primary function of the Gramble Foundation.

case study

Mercy Ships: Janurary 2014

Gramble donated €10,000 to hospital ship-operator Mercy Ships from the proceeds generated by users’ activity using Gramble’s tools. The donation has made it possible to renovate the hospital onboard the ship “Africa Mercy”, with Mercy Ships able to treat 20% more patients than before.

A director of Mercy Ships said: “We are extremely grateful to Gramble and their thousands of users for their generosity and excited to be part of such a vibrant community. Social gaming is new to us and it is kind donations such as these that are vital to ensuring Mercy Ships can continue to help and provide care to those who have little access to surgical and medical help.”
