1. Infographic: Fundraising is a team sport

For events that rely on peer-to-peer fundraising, teams have become the backbone. It’s easy to see why: 100 teams can bring you as much revenue as 1,000 individual participants. A team raises 10 times the dollars an individual participant raises.

For our latest infographic we dug deep into the numbers to see why teams are playing such a vital role in events and why making your event team-centric is a sound strategy for growth. In our data sample* of DonorDrive client events that made teams part of their fundraising, we discovered that more than half of the event revenue was generated by teams.

6. Infographic: Social fundraising is alive and well in 2016. And growing.

Numerous reports have come out recently criticizing social media for a lackluster fundraising performance. And it’s true: If your organization is making the ask over your well-liked social media channels you may be surprised at the lack of response. That’s because social media is a tool best used by supporters, not organizations. What really gets the donations pouring in is when your participants share the story of why they’re involved in your event and ask their friends and family to give.

Millennials are credited with being the most passionate generation to date, but still nonprofits struggle with how to harness that passion for their organization.

9. Getting over your fear of fundraising minimums.

In these days when nonprofits are trying to eliminate the zero-dollar fundraiser, it’s surprising how organizations are reluctant to require peer-to-peer fundraising minimums for their events. While most cycling events and marathons require fundraising minimums, some into the thousands of dollars, we’re seeing more and more organizations that fundraise with DonorDrive successfully employing fundraising minimums at lesser amounts on walks as well. We spoke with Kim Kraus, in charge of Special Events at Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock about their CHaD HERO event that uses DonorDrive's Required Fundraising feature. The CHaD HERO is a 5K walk, 10K hike, 5K run, half marathon, family fun run and day-long community festival. The CHaD HERO has had a minimum fundraising requirement for several years. Here’s how their minimums work: “Our current registration fee and fundraising minimum structure is:
