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 name, website, and country. 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.

  2. 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?

  5. 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. Every penny you raise makes a real difference to veterans and those still serving, helping them to recover and get on with their lives.
