Beyond the Event: Creative Approaches to Peer-to-Peer Fundraising
Thursday, August 3rd, 2017
4:00 PM - 5:15 PM: Breakout 4
Many nonprofits have invested in peer-to-peer tools to manage registration and participant fundraising for traditional run, walk, and ride events. However, they may be missing opportunities to use those same tools between, or instead of, events to raise even more funds. Some nonprofits are finding creative and effective ways to use peer-to-peer tools and techniques to raise money and engage supporters. The same tools that were originally intended for peer-to-peer fundraising around traditional run, walk, and ride events are now being used for everything from virtual food drives to mission trips to fraternity events to blood drives to the increasingly popular do-it-yourself (DIY) events. Using these approaches, organizations of all sizes and missions are raising funds and other types of support year-round. In this session, two nonprofits, PBS and SOS Children's Villages USA, will tell their stories and answer moderator and audience questions about their real-world experiences with creative peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns.
