The country’s top peer-to-peer fundraising programs have taken a hit in the past decade, showing decline year after year. However, the latest “Peer to Peer Fundraising Thirty” finds that peer-to-peer fundraising certainly isn’t dead.
Convio, Inc., the leading provider of on-demand constituent relationship management software and services to nonprofit organizations, today announced that ConvioTeamRaiser, a tool for organization-hosted event fundraising, powers five of the top ten fundraising events nationwide, as ranked by The Run Walk Ride Fundraising Council’s 2008 industry study. Convio clients generated 60 percent of all monies raised by the top ten events in The Run Walk Ride Thirty. Additionally, Convio clients using the TeamRaiser as part of their special fundraising events raised more than $1 billion in 2008 — an 11 percent increase from 2007 — outpacing the 7.6 percent average growth of the top 30 programs in the study.
