Michael Wasserman (USA) 

CEO & Co-Founder, Tiltify 

Michael Wasserman is CEO/co-founder of Tiltify, the peer-to-peer fundraising platform for livestreams. With more than 10 years of experience in charitable fundraising, Michael has helped raise tens of millions of dollars through innovative strategies for major charities as a consultant and executive.

With a passion for leveraging digital-first strategies to engage new donor audiences, Michael’s work has included highly successful campaigns for Farm Sanctuary, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Save the Children, MDA, Make-A-Wish, and dozens more. In 2018, he earned the Public Service Award from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention for his work benefitting suicide prevention and mental health issues. 

Launching Tiltify to the public in 2015, Michael’s hope was to enter the powerful emerging market of livestreams through platforms including Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook and show the re-invented version of the telethon. 

Since then, over 700 charities worldwide have begun using these new technologies. This new strategy has proven to be a top fundraising choice for the millennial and Gen Z demographics who thrived when using these new technologies and were given deeper engagement options with their community.
