LANFest is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity organization who’s mission is to, “Build healthy communities through gaming.” Since its inception in April 2002, LANFest has been holding BYOC LAN (Bring Your Own Computer) events across the nation with 20+ Chapters across 16 States. Each LANFest Chapter is equipped to empower their community to become a Healthy Gaming Community and unite the world through gaming by removing the negative stigma surrounding it.

Since 2002, LANFest has donated a grand total of ~$2.5 Million to over 150 Charities nationwide supporting communities surrounding grieving families, clinical research, feeding the homeless, and more. With 85 National HQ Volunteers and 400+ Chapter Volunteers, LANFest and its members stand with those in need and supports them in one of the most fun and engaging ways possible, GAMING!

LANFests Chapters around the nation host anywhere from 1 – 3 LAN Parties a year. Each Chapter customizes their own LAN Party to support their own growing community. Although each Chapter has the opportunity to customize their own LAN Party, they all follow a standard format which includes: 3-Day LAN, 24/7 Event, Tournaments/Activates, Sponsored Giveaways & Prizes, Local Charity of Choice.
