Twitch integration

Upgrade your Twitch donations and harness the power of livestream fundraising with Givebutter’s seamless integration.

Twitch is an online platform where millions of people come together live every day to chat, interact, and make their own entertainment together. Audiences can donate to any streamer they love, and with the Twitch Charity Tool, creators can also turn their livestreams into charity stream fundraisers for good causes. 

As with other social media for nonprofits, Twitch helps connect users to charitable causes, but the platform’s native fundraising tool lacks some essential features that nonprofit organizations need for sustainable fundraising success. 

With Givebutter, you can make the most of Twitch livestreaming tools while having greater customization and branding, more access to donor data, and robust nonprofit marketing features—all for free. 

Take Twitch donations further with Givebutter

Creators can start raising funds easily through their Twitch donation panel, but overall, Twitch fundraising can be restrictive:

  • Limited options ❌  Twitch donation setup requires nonprofits to be enrolled with the PayPal Giving Fund in order to accept donations on the site. This limits what payment methods are available to your supporters.
  • Less access ❌  When viewers contribute a Twitch donation, they must opt-in in order for the organization to receive any information about them, including their contact information.

Givebutter takes fundraising on Twitch to the next level with both livestreaming capabilities and powerful tools for accepting and managing donations. Here's how to set up Twitch donations that bring the best of both platforms together:

  • Raise more ✅ Givebutter’s optimized fundraising events, pages, peer-to-peer campaigns, and donation forms are fully customizable and branded to your nonprofit. Share your campaign link across your Twitch profile and in your streams with free QR codes and text-to-donate tools. 
  • Engage better With Givebutter’s livestreaming features, you can seamlessly embed your Twitch charity stream and broadcast campaign updates right from your event page, so everything is in one convenient place. 
  • Accept everything ✅ Your donors can enjoy far more payment options with Givebutter’s donation forms than they can with the Twitch donate button. Give them the choice to make a recurring gift and pay via PayPal account or debit/credit card, as well as Venmo, Google Pay, Apple Pay, donor-advised funds, and more. 
  • Track your progress ✅ Turn Twitch donations into sustainable revenue. Givebutter equips nonprofits with a robust nonprofit CRM to help organize donor data in one central place.
