"Our donors are often our best sales people, so our ability to have them solicit on our behalf works great. Whether they use the Tell a Friend feature after they make a gift, or go as far as to create a personal donation page on our site (that we approve), CiviCRM allows us to utilize our donors' passion in the most effective way possible."
Allow constituents to create a personal campaign (contribution) page to solicit donations on your behalf
Let donors easily tell their friends that they’ve just donated and encourage them to give
Set up goal and donation tracking page with a thermometer widget to let donors and prospective donors know how far you’ve come
- CiviCRM allows individual donors (or teams of donors) to participate in peer-to-peer fundraising. Donors establish a fundraising goal for their campaign, create their own contribution page, and invite their peers to give. This powerful tool allows donors to raise funds around any activity e.g.: birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, or sporting events. As peers contribute, their gifts are automatically attributed to the campaign, listing them in a scrolling 'honor roll' and visualizing how much closer the campaign is to its goal.
- Each contribution either creates a new contact in CiviCRM or adds the contribution to an existing contact. All personal campaign page contributions are also soft-credited to the campaign's organizer establishing peer relationships at a glance.
- CiviCRM processes peer-to-peer donations using the same payment processor and fees as regular contributions. Unlike CiviCRM, proprietary peer-to-peer fundraising solutions charge fees of up to 7% per transaction and store the resulting contacts and contributions in a separate database.
