Charity

ATTENTION! Regarding charity requests...

The charity tool is now fully integrated with the PayPal Giving Fund, so if your charity is registered there, you should be able to find it to start a fundraising campaign. In the case you find your charity missing, please reach out to the organization regarding registering with the PayPal Giving Fund. You can learn more about how to sign up your charity here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/twitch-charity-charities. For more information on Twitch’s Charity Tool, please feel free to access our FAQ Help Article: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/twitch-charity-faqs.

How it works:
  • 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. The MELBA Foundation would like to be integrated into Twitch's Charity Tool. Our mission is to help make music education more accessible and affordable to students who live in underprivileged communities. We love the music community on Twitch and plan on being more involved once we get integrated so we can start fundraising!

    We are all set up on Paypal Giving Fund: paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/4897172

    The MELBA Foundation (88 - 3934358) is a memorial scholarship that offers affordable music lessons to students who aren't able to afford music education. We also donate books and school supplies to elementary schools in Romblon, Philippines.

  2. Twitch should add Black Mafia's Non-Profit to their charity tool so we can stand in solidarity with their cause and support their efforts on preventing racism, bigotry, and queerphobia in gaming spaces!

  3. 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.

  4. I have seen many automated replies about charities that have requested to be added with a comment of "At this time, the charity tool is fully integrated with the PayPal Giving Fund; so if your charity is registered there, you can already find it to start a fundraising campaign"

    However, many charities that are already in the PayPal Giving Fund do not appear in Twitch's charity list - a request I logged provided this as an example.

    Can someone from Twitch confirm that you have restricted this to ONLY charities based in the US? This question does not seem to…

  5. 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…

  6. For ease of use and sharing, it would be fantastic to have a "charity" page for streamers on their Twitch channels. Currently we have to direct people to click the Subscribe/Donate button and there is not a good way to send people directly to a page where they can donate without having to do that. This would be especially useful for promoting our fundraising efforts to people who are not necessarily familiar with Twitch but want to participate.

    Please add "charity" as a separate page for every twitch channel - alongside the current ones for Home, About, Schedule, and Videos.…

  9. Hello,
    I want to introduce the "Kevin Richardson Foundation".
    The Kevin Richardson Foundation is a non-profit conservation organisation with nature’s most majestic creature, the lion, at its heart. Launched in early 2018 the foundation is committed to changing and reversing the state of Africa’s declining lion population by purchasing habitat and raising awareness to create safe, natural spaces where lions and other native species can flourish. By partnering with specialised organisations and engaging with impoverished communities on the fringes of these protected areas, the foundation also aims to minimise human/wildlife conflict whilst improving living conditions for local villages.
    The Foundation…

  11. Alright Twitch, let's go on this ride again. There is a multitude of hate groups in your charity tool and it is simply unacceptable.

    You claim you can do "thorough research" to determine if a group is acceptable to be on your platform or not, so I'll focus on listing some of them and you can do your job :)

    • Alliance Defending Freedom
    • Chalcedon Foundation
    • The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte
    • The Salvation Army (There's 5 of them)
    • Salvation Army National Corporation
    • The Salvation Army, Miami Adult Rehabilitation Center
    • The Salvation Army a Georgia Corporation
    • The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation…

  12. 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.

    Regardless of contracts, supporting a charity should be available to all that wish to.

  13. We shouldn't have to create a UserVoice for every hate group "charity" that we find in the charity search.

    Since Twitch isn't going to vet all the organizations it adds to the charity search, please add a report button to each charity description so that we can notify you of them and not have to go through UserVoice again and again.

  14. Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF), founded in 1991 by concerned humanitarians in the USA, provides free medical care to thousands of injured and ill children yearly who lack local access to care within the local health care system. Over the years, we've sent over 2,000 affected children abroad for free medical care, sent thousands of international doctors and nurses to provide tens of thousands of children free medical care in local hospitals, and provided tens of thousands of children humanitarian aid and support they otherwise would not get.

    PCRF's impact also includes establishing two pediatric cancer departments in Palestine, a…

  17. Twitch streamer here, wishing to have a charity added to the Twitch charity tool, especially at Christmas. I've shaved my head for them in the past, raising $14 000 to feed the less fortunate in the area, but want to keep my locks this Christmas and hope we can add them to the Twitch Charity Tool. My Food Bank is run by SAMARITAN HOUSE MINISTRIES INC. (Human Services) CRA107951790RR0001. Thank you for your consideration. -Tyler
