PRF Frequently Asked Questions

Who can participate?
Anyone over the age of 13 can host and set up an event online. Participants and attendees can be any age.

When can I start?
Anytime! You can fundraise and sign up whenever you want. Sign up here to start fundraising for PRF!

Do I have to stream?
No! You’re welcome to play games and raise awareness for us without streaming your games. Be sure to use social media to let family and friends know when you’ll be playing and encourage them to pledge to your event.

How do I stream?
You can stream on any number of live streaming services, like TwitchYouTubeMixer or Facebook.

There are many helpful guides out there to get started with streaming, like Twitch’s helpful starter guide that is filled with How-To’s. Check them out!

You will be given the option when you create a new campaign to include a Twitch ID. This will embed your Twitch channel in your campaign. You are free to remove this at any time.

Please note that streaming may require additional hardware or software and will consume more data than just playing a game.

What games can I play?
Video games, board games, card games, yard games, etc. are all great ways to have fun and support PRF. We request that you play video games that have an ESRB rating of “Teen” or lower, as playing content and comments deemed objectionable will result in your account being removed from the program.

What can I do during my event?
You are welcome to host however you choose, provided you follow a few simple guidelines:

  • No profanity, sexually explicit or bigoted language or visuals
  • No playing while intoxicated
  • No illegal drugs or paraphernalia

Playing content that is deemed objectionable will result in your account being removed from the program. Play something that you’d be comfortable playing in front of your family.

How do I fundraise based on my gaming performance?
Performance-based fundraising empowers teams to raise money through their performance during a game or an event. Supporters can pledge a donation for every recorded touchdown, home run, point, goal, mile or any measurable stat during a game or an event. The game or event can last for a single day or last the entire season. After game results are finalized, pledges automatically turn into donations that directly benefit The Progeria Research Foundation.

Performance-based fundraising allows teams to use their performance to earn donations by simply playing the games and activities they love!

How can I donate?
While gaming, your supporters can donate during your stream as directed. To donate outside of streaming, use our online form. Payment can be made via credit or debit card.

Is my donation tax-deductible? How can I get a tax receipt or statement?
The Progeria Research Foundation is exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, your gift is tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law. Our federal tax identification number is 04-3460220.

We provide a tax receipt for all tax-deductible donations. If you have any questions, please email donations@progeriaresearch.org.
