About Charity Series of Poker
Established in 2014, the Charity Series of Poker is a nonprofit company founded to organize and promote charity poker tournaments and other events that raise money and awareness for worthy charities and causes. We strive to make it easy for poker players and celebrities to give back to their communities and the world in a very tangible way while playing the game we all love.
Our 44 official CSOP events have raised nearly $3 million for our beneficiary charities.

The CSOP received the prestigious 2015 American Poker Award as the Charitable Initiative of the Year.
The Charity Series of Poker was originally founded as a grassroots volunteer organization to enable poker players to give back to their communities.
