Why is peer-to-peer fundraising one of the fastest growing sources of charitable donations?
Online giving has experienced strong, double-digit growth in Canada over the past ten years, but no other fundraising technique harnesses the power of the digital world and social relationships like peer-to-peer social fundraising. This includes events such as runs, walks, and other “thons.” For Canadians, it provides a meaningful way to help the charities they care about, and to inspire friends and family through fun, engaging activities. For charities, it provides a tremendous opportunity to raise incremental funds vital to fueling your charity’s work, as well as helping to acquire new donors, and strengthen relationships with current supporters.
