    How to Plan, Launch, Run, and Wrap Up Successful Online Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Campaigns and Events
    Whether it’s associated with a large event — like a walk-a-thon, or it’s year-round — like a tribute campaign, peer-to-peer (p2p) fundraising is all about engaging supporters to raise funds from their own networks on your nonprofit’s behalf. No matter what type of peer-to-peer fundraising campaign your organization embarks upon, you don’t have to go it alone.

    In this session, we will talk and answer questions about real-world experiences in planning, launching, running, and wrapping up successful online p2p fundraising campaigns. You’ll walk away with tips, tricks, and techniques for successful p2p fundraising.

    Speakers:
    • Mark Becker, Founding Partner, Cathexis Partners
    • Maria Shanley, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida
    11:30am (Eastern) - 12:30pm (Eastern)
    Don’t Let a Bad Event Experience Cost You Fundraisers: Creating Event Day Success
    In today’s nonprofit event space of sponsorship dollar competition, minimal registration fees, and short participant attention spans, returning fundraisers are precious. Are you doing all you can to make sure you’re not losing them because of a bad event experience that may be easily fixable? In this session, you’ll learn how you can radically improve your organizations’ event experience — and keep fundraisers coming back — without adding significant expense.

    You'll leave this session:
    • inspired to create better events by improving staff and volunteer preparation
    • armed with actionable steps to take immediately whether your event is new or a legacy
    • ready to share specific ideas—and continue the discussion—with the rest of your team

    Low Barriers, Deep Engagement for P2P Fundraising Success
    Ask any fundraiser if they’d like to have their supporters raising funds on their behalf, and you’re going to get a “helllll yeah.” But successfully activating people to reach into their networks requires two things: a strong relationship and a clear path forward. In this session, we’ll discuss the strategies and tactics to engage your supporters and mobilize them to take the next step.
