Peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraising is a strategy for collecting donations from peers to raise money for a nonprofit organization. These personal campaigns often happen in conjunction with some type of event centered around an endurance activity like running, walking, or cycling. Non-physical activities like reading or meditating can also serve as the foundation of a successful peer-to-peer fundraising campaign that encourages goal setting and continuous engagement. A third theme centers around celebrations. Rather than receive material presents for a birthday or graduation, fundraisers can ask their family and friends to make a charitable donation to their favorite nonprofit organization. Peer-to-peer fundraising is big and here to stay.
