TFConnect is a charity fundraising organization originating from the Team Fortress 2, hosting annual community livestream events. Since 2018, we have raised over $50,000 in support of various charities such as SpecialEffect!
SpecialEffect is an organisation set to transform the lives of many kids and adults who face physical challenges. By using solutions ranging from modified controllers to eye-tracking sensors, they're finding ways for people to play to the very best of their abilities.

When an item is donated, ScrapTF stores the cash value of your donation at the time it was made. This stored value will not change, even if the item's value later fluctuates due to the economy. ScrapTF then sells the items for their stored cash values via Marketplace.tf. In the event that the item is sold for a higher price than initially listed, the full sale value will be still donated.
Neither ScrapTF nor TFConnect take any portion of the donations. However, a 2% fee is taken from each item's sale value to cover the fee from the payment processors that ScrapTF uses. This fee is actually slightly higher than 2%, but ScrapTF takes that small hit to maximize the amount of money going to the charity. As an example, if a key sells for $2.00, the fee will be $0.04, and the final donated value will be $1.96.
No-one from the TFConnect team handles any item donations and/or their cash values!
