In a press release dated September 16, 2019, the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) and Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) announced they have jointly committed $200,000 to the Dr. Robert Hunter International Problem Gambling Center over the next two years.

The gift was made in part to highlight the importance of Responsible Gaming Education Week 2019 which was organized by the American Gaming Association (AGA) as a national initiative for responsible gaming education, training and awareness that includes participation from many industry stakeholders.

“AGEM has been a supporter of the amazing work done by the Problem Gambling Center in Las Vegas since our inception and our annual contributions over the past 20 years now total nearly $1 million,” AGEM Executive Director Marcus Prater said in the press release.

This is the first joint effort by AGEM and GLI through the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative  to support responsible gaming. Separately, both companies have long histories of supporting responsible gaming efforts in policy and in financial support.

AGEM and GLI announced the Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative earlier this year and made its first gift to the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering building fund at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, which was a $500,000 contribution.
