LOS ANGELES, Dec. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The season of giving may be winding down but Tiltify, the livestream interactive fundraising platform, is gearing up for a blockbuster year in 2019 of helping the nation's most innovative charities raise millions of dollars through interactive livestream broadcasts.
Having facilitated more than 10,000 campaigns and million in donations in 2018, Tiltify has celebrated several giving milestones this year, including:
- $2.8 million raised for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital through GuardianCon;
- $2 million raised during St. Jude Play Live Prize Month, which hit its $1 million goal in just the first 19 days; and
- Celebrity streamer Jacksepticeye hit the million-dollar milestone, raising over $1.1 million in multiple campaigns throughout the year.
Millions more have been raised for hundreds of new charities added to the Tiltify family, as well as for some well-known causes, including Make-a-Wish Foundation, Direct Relief, Save the Children and the Ellen Fund, and at high-profile events such as Twitchcon, Hi-Rez Spring Fling, Scareathon and more.
Tiltify also forged several strategic partnerships in 2018 to help streamers and donors support worthy causes. In August, it launched the Jacksonville Fallen Gamers Fund and co-hosted a Twitch esports livestream event with professional gamer Shay "Young Kiv" Kivlen and Parkland High School student and gun control advocate Cameron Kasky to raise money for families of the victims in the Madden NFL 19 tournament shooting.
And in October, Tiltify teamed up with Activision for the 4th Annual Race to Prestige livestream marathon supporting the Call of Duty Endowment Fund. So far, the #CODNATION Challenge has raised over $335,000 this year through various campaigns, not including Activision's matching contribution.
"We've had a tremendous year and we're extremely proud to work with all of these fantastic partners. The spirit of giving is very much alive, but it takes a modern, interactive approach to reach today's young audiences," said Tiltify CEO Michael Wasserman. "Our platform is bringing fundraising into the 21st century and we're excited to expand our network and our features even further in the new year."
Much of Tiltify's fundraising power comes from its interactive features that not only facilitate donations, but also enable streamers to mobilize and engage directly with donors. Streamers can offer incentives, chat with viewers and answer questions, while viewers can see the campaign's progress toward goals and how their individual contributions add up in real time.
Its new Twitch extension creates a direct integration with the popular livestream platform that lets streamers embed Tiltify features into the broadcast. Within the Twitch stream, viewers can also now use Amazon Pay to contribute to a Tiltify campaign, streamlining the donation process and making it fast and simple to give to the live campaign. Other features like monthly giving options, monthly rewards and homepage takeovers give charities and the streamers who raise funds for them flexible options for creating engaging, exciting campaigns and events.
Tiltify recently added Facebook Live as a new streaming option, providing yet another channel for streamers to engage with donors and raise money for their favorite charities. Meanwhile, the platform's dashboards, team functionality and reporting tools have all received upgrades and enhancements over the last year.
