We could not have Play It Forward without our sponsors!  Each year, we have had people and companies from around the United States donate items -- board games and non board games alike.  We have been incredibly honored and humbled to have so much support from so many different groups, and wanted to recognize them here.

We recognize our sponsors by different categories - each category is defined by the retail amount of items or services donated by each company or person.

Each of our sponsors mean the world to all of us who help organize Play It Forward.  Thank you again!  Even the smallest donations help in a huge way!
