2. Why Facebook is the most powerful social channel for fundraising

At first glance, Facebook doesn’t look like a place for nonprofits to play. Last year it was reported that Facebook’s reach is down 52% for businesses and 42% for pages and still declining. So your organization’s updates are seen by fewer and fewer people. To get your updates seen by more people you're now expected to pay to advertise—just like for-profit corporations.

But cheer up.

3. Raise 60% more by coaching your participants through text notifications

In online peer-to-peer fundraising, email has been the traditional communication tool for organizations to communicate with their participants. Organizations rely on it for recruiting, for communicating event details and for motivating their participants to fundraise. But when it comes to coaching, our latest research shows that text is a much more effective tool. Here’s the proof:

5. Fundraising flexibility that fuels regional and national growth.

For the past few years we’ve seen a trend of organizations expanding their peer-to-peer fundraising solely from hosting signature events to now offering DIY fundraising, third-party fundraising, community fundraising, virtual programs and other options to retain current supporters and to attract new ones. Many are discovering a big hidden benefit in offering fundraising options: They’re encouraging new growth both regionally and nationally.

7. 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.

8. 12 ways to rid your event of zero-dollar fundraisers.

It’s shocking to most nonprofits in the peer-to-peer fundraising space when they examine their event data and discover how many participants don’t raise a penny. It’s easy to write off the zero-dollar fundraiser as just part of doing business, but have you looked at how many you really have and how much of a drain it can be on your event? Causes that hold fundraising events, but don’t require fundraising can find that 80% of those who register don’t raise a dime. If your fundraising software is one that charges you by the record, you’re losing money just by having all those zero-dollar fundraisers loitering in your system. We asked DonorDrive staff members Ed Lord, Michelle Steed and Mike Malekoff for their expertise on the matter. From their time recently at the American Cancer Society, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and JDRF, they've developed many techniques to minimize and eliminate zero-dollar fundraisers.

10. 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:
