Click this link (on your mobile device): https://charge.app.link/P2P2021 and follow the prompts to join the fun of a live virtual 5K walk/run. Click sign up, come back September 10th at 9am EST for the live event with special guest host Mark Becker.
We’ve all gotten pretty good at flexing our P2P pivot muscle over the past 18 months. In person fundraising programs were shifted to virtual. Many of us just cancelled our P2P events (with fingers crossed that you could make it happen in 2021). All of that pivoting and changing and rethinking took a lot out of us. Can’t we just go back to how we did things in 2017?
No one knows what the future holds, but I think it’s fair to say that we are most definitely not going back to 2017 anytime soon. But there are some practical steps you can take right now to level set your P2P program for whatever lies ahead. Join Maureen Wallbeoff, Nonprofit Digital Strategist & Technology Coach, as she gives you a simple framework you can use to evaluate your existing P2P program from top to bottom, set new goals, and make things just plain easier for your participants, donors, and staff.
Email communications can make or break a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. In this session, you’ll learn the elements of successful email communications strategies, plus best practices, real-world examples, and what to do if (and when) things don’t work as planned.
This is the first of five sessions in this step-by-step workshop series led by an expert in the nonprofit tech industry and nonprofit professionals who have been through peer-to-peer campaigns and are ready to share lessons learned. You can attend any of the sessions, but we recommend attending them all for optimum results. At the end of each session, you’ll receive a “homework” assignment that will help to reinforce and build on what you learned in the session.
If the COVID-19 pandemic proved anything, it’s that fundraisers are creative and versatile. Last year, nonprofits took the peer-to-peer fundraising style and ran with it—and we’re not looking back.
The future of peer-to-peer fundraising is varied and bright. Attend this session if you’d like to learn:
- How nonprofits are using peer-to-peer tools to recruit supporters and build communities, even when they can’t meet in person
- Different event styles and formats that work both virtually and in person
- How your peers are adapting their peer-to-peer events to meet their community’s changing needs
- Unconventional and inspiring ways to use a peer-to-peer platform to sell merchandise, host virtual food and supply drives, and more
You’ll see tons of examples of creative events that will surprise and inspire you. Come learn about what the future holds for this exciting (and versatile!) fundraising style.
Golf fundraisers aren't typically lumped into the peer-to-peer category, but they should be! This session will discuss this critical, yet underutilized, fundraising mechanism. You'll learn more about the value of golf as a P2P tool, the unique goals golf fundraisers accomplish for nonprofits of all sizes, and how technology can streamline golf tournaments (whether they’re held by nonprofits, corporate partners, volunteers, or other third parties).
One of the ways that has grown exponentially in how peer to peer fundraisers connect with their audiences is livestream fundraising. Many streamers and influencers have embraced the ability to support their favorite causes, yet the majority of P2P programs may not fully understand the role that livestreaming can play in creating community and building an audience of support.
In this session, learn from the experts at Neon Fundraise on how we empowered nonprofits like CHOC Foundation and AIDS Walk NYC to bring livestreaming to their events. We'll cover:
- The ways that livestream fundraising gets built into a P2P program
- The importance of flexibility, creativity, and interactivity during a livestream fundraising event
- How nonprofits can think about empowering their supporters to utilize livestream fundraising for both virtual and hybrid events they run

Who is the hero of your organization's story? Hint: it's not the organization. To generate more donation revenue, keep your community engaged, and accelerate your impact, you need to lift up the authentic voices of the real people at the heart of your organization - your fundraisers, volunteers, donors, and supporters. Leading organizations are achieving this with real video content from real people.

The communication preferences and digital marketing trends that are reshaping the future of fundraising for mission-driven organizations
How St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital incorporates peer-to-peer storytelling into their strategy
The three simple steps you need to know to get started with user-generated video

After seeing thousands of peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns, I've noticed there's one factor that sets apart a good fundraiser from a great fundraiser: the fundraising toolkit.

With a strong fundraising toolkit in place, you'll run a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign designed to succeed.
After a challenging year, three things are currently top of mind for Nonprofits: Engaging supporters, activating new donors, and raising more money. Organizations are doubling down on their fundraising efforts to recoup what was lost in 2020 while still achieving their goals for 2021. The stress of it all is mind-numbing, especially if you are uncertain whether your technology is enabling your success or hindering it.
Ease your mind by joining GiveSignup | RunSignup as we discuss how our free, purpose-built technology can help your organization elevate your fundraising events and reach your goals, so you can champion your cause. Together, we will delve into specific best practices for engaging with supporters, new and old. We will also cover how our free event fundraising platform seamlessly integrates with your core CRM and DMS, providing you with a holistic view of the lifecycle of your supporters.
Smartphones have become our de-facto communication device…we look at them nearly 100x each day and rely upon the instant notifications for important news, information and updates. Now, nonprofit organizations of any size can also communicate with their families, volunteers, staff and supporters directly on their smartphones quickly and inexpensively…based upon who they are and even where they are.
In this session, we’ll present:
1) A Case Study: We will present a Case Study for how Guardian Angel Basset Rescue (GABR), used an App for their 2021 ‘Waddle’ event. During the event, GABR used an App to:
Establish a permanent mobile based connection with supporters
Communicate with event participants who were physically at the event
Add value to sponsors via additional & geo-based exposure
Communicate instantly with volunteers during the event
The App enabled event day and ongoing communication that was not possible via email or social.
2) An App overview where you will learn:
How Apps-based communication is different than email, social or texting
How to add value to your sponsors via location-based messaging
How to connect with specific groups in your community

Return to in-person (are we there yet?)
It's all been a bit rough these past eighteen months and it often feels harder and harder to gain attention and participation for your event in this confusing and complex peer-to-peer fundraising landscape.
Differentiating your event program is critical to your peer-to-peer program's future.
It might just be time for an event branding intervention, and a good look at how your event's brand will support future peer-to-peer fundraising. A re-brand might even be the key.
In this stop-and-think session, Taylor Shanklin, branding strategist, will guide you through a branding journey.
You will walk away with a methodology and tools to:
- Build a stellar brand story for your event
- Re-brand an event
- Differentiate yourself and standout
- Create an event brand guideline for your nonprofit
Since the global pandemic, the fundraising world has changed! In order to raise funds and expand your network, it takes innovation, creativity, and technology.
Why do you people donate? Because the story you are telling resonates with them!
With using new technology you can use storytelling DURING your event to raise awareness, increase donations, and create an unforgettable event.
In this session, you will learn how to put on an incredible walk or run with no heavy lifting, by giving your donors a sense of community through a unique LIVE audio experience. We are seeing the popularity of podcasts and new apps such as Clubhouse are taking off, so how do we leverage experiences like that to help raise more funds? We will show you.
Join us before the talk at 2:00 PM EST to experience Charge and walk with us. Lace up your shoes, then learn about how you can use it for your fundraising event.
How exciting would it be to just sit back on your couch, tune-in to your event or campaign live stream and just watch the donations flow in? Sounds ideal to any non profit leader.
There is a whole new set of donors and fundraisers ready to be engaged through tangible moments, including the trendsetting act of live streaming. However, you must first lay the groundwork.

Plus, lessons learned about live streaming and who that audience is today.
Virtual and hybrid events are here to stay.

To take advantage of their potential, now is the time to start investing resources into developing new quality programming designed for the user experience.

Time to bust some myths, unlearn old paradigms, and unlock new social fundraising potential.
Did you know Do-It-Yourself or Supporter-driven fundraisers are on the rise. According to our latest research the average donation to occasion and third-party fundraisers grew 117% last year. Yet, many nonprofits don’t have a strategy for peer-to-peer DIY fundraising. Until now… Join us as we get real on DIY, peer-to-peer, and how to leverage third-party campaigns to blow past your fundraising goals. We will break down common myths and share strategies to:
- Create easy to launch evergreen campaigns
- Increase fundraise-your-way supporter momentum

Every day we say “thank you”. We thank the Starbucks barista, the stranger in front of us that holds the door open, the friend that calls us on a bad day, but many of us are guilty of not thanking some of the most amazing supporters that come to us - our Facebook fundraisers. These individuals seek out our cause and raise tremendous amounts of money. We need to say “thank you” not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it will help strengthen acquisition efforts and overall revenue.
In this session we will explore how the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention took the human to human approach to thank Facebook fundraisers and the amazing results they saw - both in increased revenue and stronger relationships with their newly acquired constituents.

It’s time to change the way we think about gamification, to redefine what it means to gamify. Once considered the crème de la crème of gamification, ‘Badges’ are now just the tip of the digital fundraising iceberg.
In this session, we’ll take a look at how non-profits from around the world are using smart (and simple) digital techniques to enhance their users' experience. Leveraging people’s natural desires for socializing, mastery, competition, achievement, and status to drive fundraising, engagement, and retention.
