DonorDrive and Dixper Announce Integration to Drive Higher Livestream Engagement
DonorDrive, an EngageSmart solution and creator of an advanced enterprise digital fundraising platform, and Dixper, a monetization and interaction platform for content creators and their fans, announced the availability of an integration between the two platforms to drive higher engagement and charitable donations for content creators fundraising for nonprofits through livestreaming.
Enterprise nonprofits choose DonorDrive as their main platform to run livestream fundraising programs as they look for ways to expand audiences and diversify fundraising efforts. “Nonprofits are experiencing unprecedented challenges—lost revenue and staff cuts during the pandemic, the threat of major economic downturn, and an estimated $30 trillion wealth transfer from major donors to younger generations over the next two decades," said Kasey Cuppoletti, Chief Product Officer of DonorDrive. “Supporter expectations have followed general consumer trends for an upgraded experience. Nonprofits must focus on building fundraising programs that withstand these issues and grow beyond what they’re doing today.”
DonorDrive and Dixper now exclusively enable donors to leverage Interactive Incentives, an extension of DonorDrive’s Donor Incentive feature set, giving nonprofit supporters more creativity and opportunity to engage potential donors. Gamification has proven to have a positive fundraising impact for nonprofit supporters, especially when supporters offer Donor Incentives to create giving levels that correspond with a reward. Content creators can offer special effects to donors, such as covering the livestream with candy or darkness, applying different voice effects to the content creator, and affecting keyboard and mouse use.
Livestreaming across sites like Facebook, Twitch, and YouTube has increased significantly, with accelerated growth since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. And livestream fundraising has increased 133% on DonorDrive in the past two years. As nonprofits look to expand their audiences, and turn to virtual and hybrid fundraising experiences, DonorDrive’s highly integrated livestream fundraising tools—including native Twitch integration—have made a significant impact on the potential amount supporters raise. On average, fundraisers who stream on DonorDrive raise more than double those that don’t.
As livestreaming grows, content creators are looking for ways to stand out and build their follower communities. Dixper has seen a 61% year-over-year increase in interactions from their platform that turns livestream viewers into key participants in the content creation process, creating fun and unique moments while supporting the creator economically. Viewers can pay to affect the creator’s livestream while they are gaming, chatting, or streaming any other type of content.
“With the rise of popular livestreaming categories such as Just Chatting, Music, and Creative makers, we were looking for a partner who could bring big picture thinking and inclusive tools without limiting what content creators decide to stream. We are thrilled to partner with Dixper on this new integration and look forward to increased impact for our nonprofit clients and their supporters,” Cuppoletti said.
“Empowering content creators to help those in need has always been a key company driver. We couldn’t be prouder of making this a reality in a very direct way, through this new integration with DonorDrive. The DonorDrive team has a true passion for this industry, with the same vision and care for users as we have. That, paired with an amazing experience for nonprofits, is what made us select DonorDrive to introduce Dixper to the nonprofit community, while offering a key requested feature for our current user base,” said Alejandro Leal Lainez, CEO of Dixper.
