Charities

We believe that every child, regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation deserves to be treated with kindness, given confidence for the future and provided with an equal opportunity to succeed. Gaining the Edge gives back by allowing managers to register by either paying a registration fee or by making a larger, direct donation to a charity of the manager's choice, as long as it benefits at-risk youth. Gaining the Edge also donates a large percentage of its event proceeds to non-profit organizations that benefit at-risk youth. To date, Gaining the Edge and Agecroft Partners have proudly donated over $2.7 million to this cause. Below are the main beneficiaries of Gaining the Edge - Global Virtual Cap Intro 2021 as well as the managers who made direct donations and their charity beneficiaries.

Thank you to the managers that registered for this event by making a direct donation to the below charities.
