Peer-to-Peer Fundraising:

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.

A non-monetary gift is referred to as a “gift-in-kind”: a donation of goods, services, time and/or expertise. When you donate a gift-in-kind, you provide WES for Youth Online with accessibility to items that would otherwise be difficult to obtain, or allow for other resources to be spent on alternative areas of need.

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

  • Restaurant gift certificates
  • Spa days
  • Local brewery tours
  • Signed memorabilia
  • Concert tickets
  • Food gift baskets
  • Golf outings

Additionally, examples of services, time and/or expertise may cover:

  • Legal services
  • Accounting
  • Social media influencing
  • Web design
  • Consulting
  • Videography/photography
