Engaging Your Supporters in Peer-to-Peer Fundraising
What is a P2P Fundraiser?
A P2P fundraiser is a supporter who rallies around your cause to fundraise on your behalf. These supporters create their own fundraising page as a spin off of your main Amplify Austin Day profile. Your fundraisers will share that page with their network to expand the reach of your organization and bring in new donors. These individuals are passionate about the work you do, and use their voice to make a difference!
Who are Your Potential Fundraisers?
How Does it Work?
Step 1: Head to your Amplify Austin Day Dashboard through your GiveGab Account
From www.givegab.com click "You" in the top right corner of your page and select "Admin Dashboard" from the dropdown menu for the organization you'd like to access. Click on the “Edit Profile” button from the Giving Day banner highlighted in the video below.
Step 2: Add Peer-to-Peer Fundraisers to your Amplify Austin Day Dashboard
From your Giving Day Dashboard, expand the sixth tab that says "Add Fundraisers" to recruit P2P Fundraisers for your organization. Click the "Add Fundraisers" button to start inviting them.
You can invite multiple people at once by clicking the "+ New Fundraiser" button. Once you've added all of your fundraisers, click the "Next" button.
Step 3: Customize & Send Your Invitation
After clicking the "Next" button you'll be able to compose a custom message that your fundraisers will receive in their invitation email. You can customize the email subject and message before sending it off to your supporters. Once your message is ready to send click the "Send" button.
After clicking the "Send" button you'll be able to view and manage your fundraisers from the "Add Fundraisers" tab of your Giving Day Dashboard.
Step 4: Share the Amplify Austin Day Fundraiser Guide with your P2P Fundraisers
This page allows your P2P fundraisers to learn about all the features they can utilize when creating their fundraiser. Within this Fundraiser Guide, they have access to communication templates, P2P strategies, and a customized downloadable P2P Fundraising Playbook!
When you press "send", the supporter will receive an email with your message along with with a link their Fundraising Toolkit where they can manage and customize their page.
