Maximize Your Fundraising Efforts with Peer-to-Peer Fundraising

Peer-to-Peer Fundraiser

Going door to door can only do so much for your fundraising campaign. It’s time-consuming, limited in scope, and can be seen as a bother to your neighbors. But with MoneyDolly’s peer-to-peer fundraising app, achieving – and even beating – your fundraising goals just got easy. Here’s what to know. 

Tap Your Networks with Peer-to-Peer Fundraising

Peer-to-peer is to fundraising, what word-of-mouth is to advertising. Instead of relying on the generosity of strangers, peer-to-peer fundraising uses your own social networks to help you reach your goals. Basically, you reach out to people you know – friends, family, community members – and encourage them to do the same with the people in their networks. It’s like dropping a pebble in a pond: the ripple effect it creates can go on and on. This is what can happen with your campaign. Because let’s face it: we’re more likely to support a campaign that we know will help someone we personally know and care about.

Let’s break it down. Here is what peer-to-peer fundraising is:

  • Builds upon existing relationships instead of making you start from scratch with each donor.
  • Multiplies the impact of your efforts by raising awareness about people with a stake in the game.
  • Helps build awareness organically and through grass-roots communications.

The upshot? More funds are raised – and more money goes directly to your cause. 

MoneyDolly Makes Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Easy

The concept of peer-to-peer fundraising is proven. But what about organizing, managing, and disseminating your campaign? At MoneyDolly, we know the pain points associated with fundraising for your sports team, school club, or community group. This is why we’ve developed an easy-to-use app-based platform that handles your fundraiser from start to finish. 

Here’s how.

  • Get set up – FAST. Complete our easy onboarding checklist to figure out what kind of campaign will work for you. Then, schedule your launch week, how you want to raise money, and your fundraising goal. Whether you want to run an event, take cash donations, or offer a gift in return for donations, we can help you do it all!
  • Onboard participants. Invite and onboard anyone involved in the fundraising, like coaches, team parents, or teachers. All they need to do is download the app, take a quick tour of the platform, and they’re ready to go! For more powerful participation, we’ve made it possible to create competition between your participants – and reward top fundraisers. 
  • Start fundraising. Have your participants select people from their phone’s contacts as potential donors. Donors can easily contribute to the campaign – and will be updated on the campaign’s process. We provide sample email and text templates to make life easy, but you’re welcome to customize them as well!
  • Tap into real-time insights. See how your campaign is going and make course corrections if needed. Once the campaign is complete, you’ll receive an overview of funds raised, net earnings, and individual donors. (Don’t forget to thank them!)

In addition, MoneyDolly is mobile optimized with multiple payment methods for speedy checkout, lets you sell tickets, embed media, and even answer Q&As. Whatever your campaign needs, we’ve thought of it – and made it a breeze to achieve.
