So you want to host a peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraising event but don’t know where to start!
P2P fundraising is any sort of fundraising initiative that depends on peers connecting with one another in support of a cause that they are passionate about.
This can be achieved through an online campaign, a DIY fundraiser, an event or through team fundraising.
P2P fundraising is cost effective, helps to grow cause awareness, expand relationship networks and maximize limited resources in a timely manner.
Learn more here about how you can start your own P2P fundraiser, with our good friends at CanadaHelps in support of WES for Youth Online!
A non-monetary gift is referred to as a “gift-in-kind”: a donation of goods, services, time and/or expertise.

Examples of donated goods that would be of benefit to silent/live auction fundraisers could include:
