"We are thrilled to partner with Twitch for a Year 4 to help inspire and elevate more women in the streaming and gaming space," says 1,000 Dreams Fund founder and CEO Christie Garton. "We are especially excited to support students in the Twitch community who are making incredible strides in their craft."

In partnership with Twitch and their community, 1DF will be celebrating all featured women streamers throughout the month while raising critical funds for its 1DF-Twitch BroadcasterHER Grant Program. Since its launch in 2018, the grant program, specifically created for up-and-coming women broadcasters on Twitch, has raised over $260,000 to support close to 200 talented content creators across the globe. In 2021, grants, ranging from $500 - $1,500, will be awarded to female Twitch creators for items that align with 1DF's funding mission, including conference travel, equipment upgrades, workshops, and more.

"The power of community can be truly transformative. We see this every day on Twitch as our creators and their communities come together to create, learn from one another, and celebrate each other," said Alyssa Sweetman, Director of Creator Social Impact at Twitch. "Through our work with 1DF, we've been able to support and elevate so many amazing women on Twitch, and give them the tools they need to build communities and find success from streaming. As we celebrate this year's Women's History Month, we are proud to continue our partnership and bring awareness to the meaningful work of this organization." 

1DF designed their BroadcastHER Initiative (BHI) and their related grant and mentorship programs to directly support underserved women content creators. Women in the streaming and gaming industry still face considerable challenges when seeking financial support to fund creative projects within their careers, not to mention a general shortage of financial support for women in this space.

"The feeling of winning the grant was unreal; it's still unreal. I didn't believe that it was my name after being rejected and overlooked for a lot of things," says Imfamousx1x, a Spring 2020 1DF-Twitch BroadcastHER Grant Recipient. "Being selected for a BroadcastHER Grant helped by giving me confidence in myself and my content because someone believed in me and continues to believe in me. I used my funds to upgrade my PC equipment and also equipment to help during the stream as well."

A number of women Twitch broadcasters will be featured on Twitch's homepage throughout the entire month of March. For all participating 1DF Streams for Dreams fundraisers, who range from gamers to makers, 1DF is offering incentives, including their new 2021 BroadcastHER T-shirt, part of their new merchandise line designed to support the BroadcastHER Initiative.
