Expert Advice for Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Campaigns
The most obvious benefit of peer-to-peer fundraising is that it builds on your existing donor relationships and expands your donor base.
Using social media to promote your event or fundraising effort is a great way to reach your guests without blasting them with too many emails.
Making your cause a centerpiece of your event will not only raise awareness, but may also educate participants and inspire them to become regular donors.
For the donors and volunteers who are passionate about your cause, a peer-to-peer campaign is their chance to educate their peers. When they ask for donations, your fundraisers can explain why your cause or mission is worth supporting and why they are so passionate about it.
