CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#fundraising–DonorDrive®, the leading peer-to-peer fundraising software for
nonprofits, has released Live Fundraising™, a feature that empowers
event participants to fundraise through streaming. Whether fundraising
from a walk-a-thon, gaming marathon or Do-It-Yourself fundraising
campaign, participants connect their personal streams from Twitch,
YouTube, or Mixer to their fundraising page and share.
“With the launch of Live Fundraising, DonorDrive clients can help
fundraisers reach their networks through streaming,” said Nik
Stephens, DonorDrive’s Chief Technology Officer. DonorDrive has made
fundraising through streaming simple for nonprofits and their
supporters: “Streamers can quickly connect their fundraising page to
their stream and keep viewers engaged with our new, real-time activity
feed. Donors feel safe knowing their money is going straight to the
nonprofit since our fundraising pages are seamlessly branded and tightly
integrated into the nonprofit’s site.”
Streaming is a rapidly-growing way for nonprofits to raise more money.
According to Twitch, their streamers have raised over $75 million for
nonprofits. Streaming is outpacing the growth of other types of online
video, with an expected market value of $70 billion by 2020. Nearly
a million people watch Twitch every day, more viewers than CNN or MSNBC.
Combined with Express Donate™ in DonorDrive, supporters can donate
quickly and nonprofits receive the money right away directly in their
account. “Streaming creates interactive fundraising opportunities
with a global reach, engaging new audiences with the mission of the
nonprofit,” says Stephens. “With Live Fundraising from
DonorDrive, nonprofits no longer have to manage disparate systems,
struggle to track who is fundraising for them, or wait weeks to receive
money raised on their behalf.”
“We’ve created the best experience for streamers, donors, and
nonprofits,” says Stephens.
