Each year the combined registration fees for the DAME Awards are donated to a nominated charity, as a way for the METSTRADE community to give something back to society. The METSTRADE Exhibition Committee selects a charity to receive the funds each year. This can be either a single charity or two charities. In 2021 the METSTRADE Exhibition Committee decided that the DAME proceeds would be donated to the Blue Marine Foundation.
