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. 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.

  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?

  3. 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!

  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. So, it turns out that even when you have a user banned in your channel, and blocked, they can still donate to a charity fundraiser on your page through the Twitch integrated charity feature.

    This needs to be rectified.

    A banned user should not be able to interact with my stream in any way, let alone have their name show up in my activity feed.

    It’s disruptive at the very least, and combined with other factors can be a tool for harassment.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. Allow streamers to include text with their goal so they they could explain why they are doing the charity goal or why they chose this charity/etc.

    This could replace the [Every dollar counts!] text in the popup at the top of chat?

  12. As a creator who sees a lot of potential with the new built-in Twitch Charity fundraising feature, I think it would be worthwhile to consider additional donation methods. Many Twitch users already utilize Bits to support their favorite creators, and while Twitch takes a cut when purchasing Bits, 100% of Bits cheered in a creator's chat goes straight to the creator themselves.

    What if there was a way for creators to route all revenue from Bits to support a specific charity during a built-in fundraiser? There's evidence of Bits serving as a fantastic resource for charities in the past on…

  13. 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…

  14. I am not in the closed beta of the new charity feature so I am going by what I have seen in Twitter posts and streams so far.

    From what I gathered when a charity stream is active, the subscription button is replaced by a donate type button for the charity. I do not mind this at all BUT I would love to see the donate button AND subscription button be both present on a channel.

    I asked this because some people doing charities use subs as a goal for different gimmicks for the stream as well as donation goals…

  17. This is a huge part for fundraising.
    Knowing when a donation comes in, showing it on screen and bringing the hype!
    Calling out the donators and thanking them.

    Right now, as a content creator, you don't see it unless you have the chat popped out and even then, it's easy to miss.

  18. I'd love to be able to have an overlay on stream that showed my Twitch charity progress, similar to ones I can use on sites like Tiltify or Just Giving.

    It would help drive donations to charity and help people easily see progress during big charity streams and see how close we are to target even if not looking at the chat.

  19. 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.…

  20. I am loving the new Charity options and it helped me kick off my first fundraiser! I would love to see an option for an on screen alert/ browser source from Twitch so we can better recognize the folks that are helping out. Showing it in the chat can get lost during faster conversations and I believe in recognition for those that go above and beyond by helping out.
