There’s a lot that sets Softgiving apart from our competitors. Besides our campaigns being the most fun you can have while fundraising, we also offer:

1. NO platform fees!

Softgiving is the first (and only!) charity streaming platform with ZERO platform fees! We’re excited to do our part in giving more money to more important causes.

2. Incentive Menuᵀᴹ

Having difficulty coming up with incentives that will motivate your community to donate? No worries! We’ve built an Incentive Menuᵀᴹ (with a simple click-to-add capability) into your campaign dashboard to make it as easy as possible to prepare for your charity stream.

3. GIPHY integration

We want to make charity streaming as fun for donors as it is for the streamers running them — which is why we are the first (and only!) charity streaming platform that has integrated with GIPHY.

Viewers can customize their donations by adding their favorite (i.e. weirdest/funniest/most absurd) GIFs + a message to appear in their on-screen donation alert.

4. Comprehensive dashboard

Everything you need for a successful campaign is right at your fingertips.

  • Incentive Menuᵀᴹ
  • Overlays (Stats overlay to track your progress toward your goal; Alert overlay that shows donation notifications; Incentives overlay to motivate your viewers)
  • Editable campaign (want to change your incentives? Increase your donation goal? You can make edits at any time leading up to — or even during! — your charity stream)
  • Donation panel (link your donation page URL and add the panel to the top of your profile so viewers can easily make a donation)

5. Charities galore

Choose from over 1.5 million charities to support. Whether your favorite charity is a small, local organization or a large, international nonprofit, you can fundraise for whatever cause you’re most passionate about.

If that number is a bit overwhelming for you (we get it, there’s a lot to choose from!!) we’re more than happy to suggest a charity — just let us know!

6. Multi-platform usability

Softgiving campaigns can be integrated into any streaming software for any streaming platform. While most of our streamers use Twitch, our overlays function the same across all platforms.

7. Sponsorship opportunities

You shouldn’t have to choose between paying your bills or giving back to your community. We offer sponsorships so more streamers can run more charity streams to raise more money for more nonprofits.

No discrimination here — streamers of any size can opt-in to sponsorship!

8. Kick-ass, world-class customer support

The Softgiving Team is dedicated to ensuring streamers feel as confident as possible going into their charity streams.

We offer easy guidelines for a successful campaign, tips & tricks for fundraising, and are available to help you along the way.
