Organizers of Game Developers Conference 2013 are announcing a partnership with the Indie Giving charity effort, donating 30 GDC Indie Games Summit tickets to the 2013 Indie Giving event.

As part of the new agreement with Indie Giving, which is run by FGL head and indie community veteran Chris Hughes, generous indie game creators will get an exclusive opportunity to buy the now sold-out IGS pass (alongside a pre-GDC Flash Games Summit pass).

Along the way, they will volunteer on an onsite project just before GDC 2013, with 100% of their Indie Giving package price going directly to the U.S. National Parks Conservancy.

For those who sign up for the Indie Giving package, on Saturday, March 23rd, the group will be working with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy to help preserve and enhance beautiful landscapes and maintain historic buildings and trails.

Indie Giving package buyers will also have a chance to attend the Independent Games Summit on Monday, March 25th and Tuesday, March 26th at GDC 2013 - the only way you can get this sold-out pass right now. You can also attend Sunday, March 24th's Flash Gaming Summit with your Indie Giving package.

By contributing, indies will collectively be donating over $10,000 to the U.S. National Parks Conservancy. Those who pitch in and buy the package will automatically get invited to some great parties and special events around GDC, as well as get transportation and lunch on the Saturday volunteering day, free T-shirts, and other perks to come.

A limited amount of Indie Giving packages are now available via the organization's official website - and Game Developers Conference itself takes place in the Moscone Center in San Francisco from Monday, March 25th to Friday, March 29th, with more information available on the official GDC website.

Gamasutra, GDC and IGF are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech.
