What is peer-to-peer fundraising software?

Peer to peer fundraising promotes fundraising and awareness building within networks of friends and family. Peer-to-peer fundraising is synonymous with;

  • Crowdfunding
  • Social fundraising
  • Third-party fundraising
  • Friends asking friends

Regardless of what it’s called, peer-to-peer fundraising is a vital component of today’s nonprofit fundraising portfolio. It is even more critical for many charities than acquiring major gifts, grants, and government funding. Peer-to-peer fundraising is a powerful engagement tool and an organic way to double or triple your donor prospects.

Donor Management Software Can’t Do It All

Donor management software companies do not specialize in peer-to-peer fundraising and while some offer peer-to-peer platforms, the additional fee and lack of technical support are cost-prohibitive and can hinder the success of your event. These platforms can’t customize peer to peer software based on your organization’s unique needs.
