Stream your fundraising
Live Fundraising is a great way to tell your story, engage with donors, and create a richer connection to the mission!
Great, how do I get started?
- You'll need a device to stream with (smartphone, desktop/laptop, Xbox, or PlayStation 4)
- Download a streaming app to your phone (Streamlabs, Twitch, or YouTube) or software to your desktop (Streamlabs, OBS, or XSplit)
- Set up an account with a streaming service (Twitch or YouTube)
- Add your streaming username to your fundraising page & save – you're ready to go!
- Click Your Page in the top bar
- Click the Settings tab on your page
- Choose your service and enter your username
- Note: YouTube requires you to enter the full URL to the live video, not your YouTube username
- Click Save Changes
- Share the link to your fundraising page on social media channels, text messages, and email to let people know when to tune in
Here's a quick guide of what you'll need depending on your device:
