The Heart of Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Operations: The Website
Beyond the website, nonprofits should have mobile payment swipers on hand the day of the event to accept credit cards and directly integrate those payments with your software. This has two benefits: eliminates paper and eliminates post-event manual work of inputting that data.
It's also key to have a post-event back office that fully integrates with your website and data. This helps to identify participants who didn't reach their fundraising/registration goals and automatically charges them for the difference in what they were responsible for. That takes more legwork off fundraisers' table and automates the process.
And of course, to tie it all together, your reporting platform should be able to provide all the data points that matter to your organization — dollars raised, participants, donors, etc.
While we're talking peer-to-peer fundraising, check out FundRaising Success' newest event, Engage P2P: Redefining Peer-to-Peer Fundraising. The event takes place Oct. 21 in Washington, D.C., and will take a holistic view of peer-to-peer fundraising. You can get more information here and register here. We look forward to seeing you there!
