Online peer-to-peer fundraising helps any size nonprofit or school grow and succeed. Because the benefits an organization receives are numerous. Online peer-to-peer fundraising is more than a new funding opportunity. The organization and supporter relationship building benefits are what is most noteworthy in an online peer-to-peer campaign.
In our two part blog series we highlight the emotional (Part I) and fiscal (Part II) benefits of an online peer-to-peer campaign. Fiscally you grow funds, cut costs and reduce staff efforts. Emotionally you create and build powerful supporter relationships through your branding and communication.
Part I: Emotional Connections
Online peer-to-peer fundraising is more popular than ever. Because of how easily everyone in the fundraising chain can communicate and connect. Therefore an online campaign provides a great opportunity for nonprofits and schools to increase their supporter engagement.
Successful online peer-to-peer campaigns provide energy, warmth and connection moments similar to a memorable song. You remember the words, a beat and memories tied to that song. Registration events, yearend giving and Tuesday giving cannot match the emotional appeal of a well-run peer-to-peer campaign.
An online campaign helps supporters better visualize and communicate your organization’s mission and goals to others. Because with an online campaign a nonprofit or school can better communicate their personality, vision and mission. Also supporters can communicate their personality, mission and goals in support of the organization. Most of all online peer-to-peer campaigns help the storyteller convey their personality, enthusiasm and warmth.
As a result your supporters can better convey emotion in their communication. Hence your supporters become more engaging and powerful enthusiasts for your campaign. In addition this energy is what your supporters remember. They look forward to feeling and sharing this energy each year. The result is everyone in the fundraising circle feels closer to your organization and mission.
