Advice and tips for your streaming event

What is Tiltify?

Tiltify is an online platform specifically created for online fundraising that enables supporters to donate to a live stream.

Tiltify provides the tools to engage with donors and raise more money for life-saving research such as:  

  • Baked-in incentives - Tiltify has incentive based features to create rewards, challenges, polls and milestones that drive donor activity 
  • On-screen alerts - give your donors instant recognition while they keep track of the fundraising excitement 

  • Schedules - keep your donors up to date on your fundraising schedule so they don't miss a moment
     
  • Team fundraising - create, support or join a team fundraiser to work together with friends, colleagues or supporters to maximize your donation together. 
What type of event or challenge can I stream?

The short answer is anything! The most common live streaming fundraisers relate to gaming. That might mean a 24-hour gaming marathon, a team event or a world-wide tournament.  

Other supporters of Kidney Research UK have live streamed:  

  • Cooking classes  
  • Marathon trampoline session  
  • Shaving their head  
  • Running a marathon!  

The power of streaming allowed these supporters to engage, entertain and incentivise their donors live, raising more money than they otherwise would have!  

What platform can I stream on?

You can link any of these platforms to your Tiltify page: 

  • Twitch  
  • YouTube
  • Facebook Live  

 

What equipment do I need?

Live streaming is easy-peasy. The basics:  

  • A computer or smart phone with a camera and microphone  
  • Internet access  
  • An account on a streaming channel such as Twitch, Youtube or Facebook  
  • Your Tiltfy or JustGiving fundraising page to overlay on your stream.  

Each platform requires slight variations in the software you might need.
