Peer-to-peer fundraising occurs when an organization recruits existing donors and volunteers to fundraise for the nonprofit’s cause by reaching out to friends and family members through social media and email.
Fueled by their passion for your cause, each donor or volunteer creates their own fundraising page and sends the URL out via social media platforms and email. Their peers can donate via their page, and all donations are funneled into the nonprofit’s main donation page.
Peer-to-peer fundraising usually takes place in conjunction with an active event, such as a walkathon or marathon (but not always!). It is unique, engaging and FUN, which is why it’s the fundraising method many organizations turn towards.
As the fundraising landscape has evolved Stewardship has been there with new philanthropy solutions to help our members stay on top of trends. Late last year Stewardship introduced our peer-to-peer fundraising platform togetherweraise. This extension of Stewardship’s all-in-one donation management platform EGS provides members a new way to fundraise in a modern giving landscape. NOW to make things even more flexible, Stewardship is offering this solution in Canada and the United Kingdom.
