Alongside the advancement and growth of technology, fundraising has grown enormously.

Now more than ever, it is easier for your students and supporters to raise funds for your school, using their own network of friends and family!

What is peer-to-peer fundraising for schools?

Online community fundraising (also known as peer-to-peer fundraising) is when an individual or team raises money on a school’s behalf.

Imagine teaching philanthropy while at the same time enabling students, parents, alumni, clubs, and teams to raise money to fund important projects at your school!

It’s a flexible method of raising money and is simple for the school, supporter, and donor alike.
