Blackbaud offers numerous peer-to-peer fundraising tools – what’s the difference between them all and what’s best for you? We here at Doing Good Digital want to give you a full overview of the tools and details to consider when choosing between platforms:
TeamRaiser is a cloud-based peer-to-peer online event fundraising software that allows you to communicate, coach, and motivate your supporters to raise more money. Organized around a central fundraising event such as a run, walk or ride, your constituents can create fundraising webpages and send donation appeals via email to their family and friends.
FEATURES WE LOVE:
Provide your participants with a personalized experience with access to reporting tools to keep track of their progress. The Participant Center also offers pre-written emails which can sync with their contacts and emails can also be sent directly from the center.
After your first year, the platform allows you and your participants to fundraise more efficiently without starting over for every new campaign. Team captains can email past participants and donors to join again. As a result, returning participants are 300% more productive then first time participants
A combination of standard and custom reports enable event managers to keep track of fundraising performance and take action.
Encourage your participants with some friendly competition for reaching certain milestones with top fundraiser and team lists, and achievement badges that appear.
Drive action and fundraising activities with behavior and time triggered messages.
We’ve built dozens of TeamRaisers and have experience with just about every feature and integration out there. If you are looking for ways to grow or innovate next year through TeamRaiser, give us a call and we could chat through some ideas.
