Support Us


Help people affected by gambling addiction – support NCPG’s National Problem Gambling Helpline today.

We are working on a goal of 48 gifts of $12 or more to support the 48 hours of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day – these are difficult days for many people. Every year, there is a marked increase in calls in December – help answer the call!

It’s easy to make your tax-deductible gift online or download a donation form here (pdf) – return it by mail or fax (address and fax are on the form).

Just $12 provides one full hour of access to our National Problem Gambling Helpline via call, text and chat.  Give $12 for the 12 days of Christmas, the 12 steps to recovery, or your own personal ’12.’

THANK YOU to everyone who has given to our Helpline Fund this holiday season – visit our Celebrate and Inspire page for the full list of donors.

Our National Problem Gambling Helpline is like a 9-1-1 service. Anytime, anywhere in the U.S., people can call to get help in their own area. And now we’re providing innovative help services by text and chat as well!

National Problem Gambling Helpline
Call or Text 1-800-522-4700


We receive hundreds of thousands of calls every year, with an uptick in the number of calls near the Super Bowl and the NCAA March Madness playoffs as well as the winter holidays. Your donation will help make sure those calls get answered.

These services cost about $102,000 in 2015, or $8,773 per month,  $288 per day, and $12 per hour. 100% of your donation will be used to support the Helpline work.  There is no Federal funding for problem gambling services and we are thankful that we can rely on friends like you to support our national programs.

Please make NCPG part of your giving this year. Your tax-deductible contribution, no matter the size, will help make sure that every call to the National Problem Gambling Helpline is answered.

You can answer the call by donating just $12 to cover one hour of helpline service!

Thank you!
