What is Peer-to-Peer Fundraising?

Peer-to-Peer fundraising features enable your Supporters to create their own individual fundraising page on your Campaign Site. Your fundraisers can then share their page with their friends and family to collect donations towards your goal. You can also activate team fundraising.

Activate & Configure Peer-to-Peer Fundraising

1. First, create a Campaign Site

2. From the Site editor > click Settings Icon

2. In the Settings flyout > click Peer-to-Peer > click to Enable Peer-to-Peer Pages

When Peer-to-Peer is enabled, you'll be able to configure fundraiser sign-up options and page settings as well as activate team fundraising.

Peer-to-Peer Settings

Tag syntax:

  • Tags start with a hash "#" mark, for example: #radical
