Charity

How it works:
  • If you'd like to nominate a charity, please go to the Request a Charity subpage and tell us the charity's (1.) name, (2.) website, and (3.) country. Please use the charity's name in the idea title, as well. We will be reviewing these submissions periodically.
  • Choose a relevant category for your idea to check to see if any other users have already submitted this suggestion before creating your own
  • Upvoting existing ideas will increase the weight behind the idea, as opposed to multiple similar requests (we will combine these anyway)
  • Be sure to share your suggestion with others to gain more support!
  • Note: Suggestions are not guarantees that we will take action on an idea. We will try our best to communicate why an idea may not work, but may not always be able to share that information

If you need help:
This forum is for ideas only. If you need help, please check out our help portal for tons of articles that may answer your questions. If you still need help, you can reach out to our support team in the help portal as well!

Appeals or commentary on suspension decisions, support requests, suggestions disparaging others, and non-constructive feedback will be closed without comment.

  1. Twitch's current community guidelines focuses behaviors that happen on site but many nonprofits do not stream or engage on Twitch. And becoming a nonprofit within the United States is relatively easy and affordable. FB, Google, and YouTube have stances against nonprofits that are discriminatory in nature or provide access only if the recipient of the program converts to their religion. Allowing nearly any nonprofit to be fundraised for through Twitch's charity product opens a new vector for abuse one that has serious real world implications given that money is involved.

  3. Allow streamer the option to donate all channel revenue (subs, cheers, sales) directly to a charity. For maximum transparency the money could go from Twitch directly to the charity, and ideally maybe Twitch would consider taking a lesser percentage so that more of the money gets to the charity?

  7. smile.amazon.com allows amazon users to select a charity organization from a massive database and 0.5% of purchases will be given to that charity.

    It would be fantastic if users on Twitch could select a charity from the existing Amazon Smile database on their Twitch profile settings, where an amount is taken from the Twitch portion of every sub purchase or bit purchase. The broadcaster receives the same amount, but a small percentage is donated from the bit fee or Twitch portion of sub revenue. Users making this choice could receive a special chat badge indicating they support a charity!

  8. I'd love to see Safe In Our World as a charity to support natively in Twitch. I've worked with this organisation in the past, and they do some amazing work around mental health. Their goal is to create and foster worldwide mental health awareness within the video game industry; to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health, to make it a natural topic of discussion, and to promote the dialogue surrounding mental health so people are not afraid to reach out for help if they need it.

  10. All of the charities available are US-based. It might be worth branching out since Twitch is used worldwide.

    We'll be fundraising for the NSPCC but can't use the Twitch functions for it as it's a UK based charity.

    End Overdose is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, California working to end drug-related overdose deaths through education, medical intervention, and public awareness.

    THE PROBLEM
    According to data from the CDC, fentanyl-related overdoses are the number one cause of death for people ages 18-45.
    Experimental drug use and addiction puts young people as one of the most at-risk populations for overdoses.
    Fentanyl is lethal in small amounts (2mg) and many times people are unaware their drugs contain fentanyl.
    Three out of five overdose deaths could have been prevented if someone…

  13. Help for Heroes is a charity that provides lifelong recovery support to British Armed Forces service personnel who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty and their families.

    Right now, they need your support more than ever. Due to the pandemic, our income has fallen and we’ve seen a 50 per cent increase in the number of veterans struggling with their mental health.

  15. Allow ALL creators--not just Affiliates and Partners--access to Charity. I've been notified of charity in my dashboard, but it's not available nor accessible via the link.

  17. Twitch has stated time and time again that they do not make money from charity streams. While this is technically true insofar as donations using the tool are concerned, from my reading of the FAQ, they still make money from their cut of subscription fees, bit sales, and advertisements run during charity streams.

    While bit sale profits are hard to manage because of its nature as a currency that can be bought at any time from any or no channel, and subscriptions may be hard from a logistics standpoint to funnel Twitch's take to the charity, there is an easy…
