CINCINNATI—September 22, 2022— DonorDrive, an EngageSmart (NYSE: ESMT) solution and creator of an advanced enterprise digital fundraising platform, is hosting its annual DonorDrive Charity Arcade at TwitchCon 2022, a convention organized by Twitch, the world’s largest livestreaming platform. The event provides a vital opportunity for DonorDrive’s enterprise nonprofit clients to connect directly with content creators, corporate brands, and their existing supporters in one collaborative, energetic environment to foster potential fundraising relationships.
After drawing thousands of attendees to the DonorDrive Charity Arcade at TwitchCon’s last in-person event in 2019, DonorDrive is hosting this year’s DonorDrive Charity Arcade at booth 2317-CH, which will be immersed in an outer space theme, representing the meteoric impact content creators make for charity.
At this year’s DonorDrive Charity Arcade, TwitchCon attendees can:
- Connect with nonprofits while entering to win prizes
- Participate in the DonorDrive Fundraiser Experience Lab to help shape the future of fundraising
- Meet their favorite content creators and community members
- Explore new and classic arcade games
- Support streamers as they fundraise live on-site
On-site streaming is made possible by DonorDrive partners Cooler Master, a lifestyle tech brand providing hardware and products, and BEACN, a leading audio innovator providing microphones and mixers.
Seven enterprise nonprofits that fundraise through DonorDrive’s live streaming features have also been selected to host their own unique experiences within the arcade. These clients include:
- Be The Match
- Bungie Foundation
- Extra Life, a Children's Miracle Network Hospitals program
- National Multiple Sclerosis Society
- Stack Up
- The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation
Enterprise nonprofits choose DonorDrive as their main platform to run charity streaming programs that expand their audiences and diversify their fundraising efforts well into the future. DonorDrive’s highly integrated livestream fundraising tools make a significant impact on the potential amount supporters can raise as more and more nonprofits turn to virtual and hybrid fundraising experiences. In the past two years, livestream fundraising has increased 133% on DonorDrive, and fundraisers who stream on DonorDrive raise 101.87% more on average than those who don’t. Notable client successes include:
