Want to charity stream for us, but not sure where to start?
Read on to learn how to set up a Tiltify campaign, how to get those donations rolling in, and how prepare for the big day. Remember, you’re not limited to gaming for your charity stream—all types of streaming are welcome!
Step 1: Register
JDRF Game2Give holds several organized streaming events each year. To register for an event, find our current fundraising events at the bottom of this page: https://tiltify.com/jdrf
We recommend linking your campaign to one of these events (rather than selecting Tiltify’s “just raise for the cause” option) so you can compete on the leaderboards and the money you raise will count toward our latest fundraising goal.
But if there are currently no events happening, or if they don’t seem
relevant to you, that’s okay! You’re still welcome to do an independent
charity stream whenever you want.
TIP: Recruit a team of streamers to join you. Ask friends to stream and join you in your activities. You’ll have more fun, we promise!
Donation incentives (things people get for donating) and milestones (things that happen when you hit a fundraising goal) can motivate viewers to donate during your charity stream.
Step 2: Customize Your Campaign
Step 3: Level Up Your Stream
Step 4: Testing, 1-2-3
Do an equipment check before the big day. Is your software up-to-date? Latest game patch downloaded? Overlays and alerts set up and working properly? If you’re playing a tabletop game, do you have all the pieces?
TIP: Make a donation to your Tiltify campaign to test your donation alert. People who make the first donation to their campaign are shown to raise more money!
Step 5: Plan & Promote
Step 6: Tag Us on Socials
Tag @JDRFGame2Give and @Tiltify on X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram when you share news about your charity stream and when you go live. We’d love to show our support and even hop into your stream!
This note from a JDRF Youth Ambassador to one of our fundraisers shows how a personalized “thank you” reinforces the value of their participation. Consider doing something like this for your donors.
Step 8: After Your Stream
WHAT’S NEXT? Schedule your next charity stream or plan to join us for an official JDRF Game2Give event.
