There are numerous Blackbaud 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. Your organization can use TeamRaiser organized around a central fundraising event such as a run, walk or ride or for an evergreen DIY program. Your constituents can create personalized fundraising page and integrate their fundraising page with Facebook Fundraising.
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, read more about the recent changes in the participant center here.
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. You can distinguish these fundraisers by giving these participants returning fundraiser badges.
A combination of standard and custom reports enable event managers to keep track of fundraising performance and take action not only on fundraising dollars but based on actions such as integrated with Facebook fundraising, updated their personal page, or sent a certain number of emails from their participant center.
Encourage your participants with some friendly competition for reaching certain milestones with top fundraiser and team lists, and achievement badges that appear on their fundraising pages. These can be set based on a fundraising amount or in line with your incentives.
Dynamic Coaching Emails
Drive action and fundraising activities with behavior and time-triggered messages. TeamRaiser has some great filtering option right out of the box that you can use to engage your participants.
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.
WHEN TO CONSIDER THE TEAMRAISER PLATFORM:
TeamRaiser allows your organization to tap into the personal networks of your strongest supporters, mobilize volunteers over the Internet, and turn your event teams into active fundraisers. Because of this rich toolset, TeamRaiser is best for events such as:
Multi or Single Location Run, Walk, or Cycle Events
Because of TeamRaiser’s robust toolset, you can easily manage a multi-location series with efficiency and ease. You can create cohesive and consistent business practices across your organization and events, but also allow for some flexibility and personalization in areas where you need it.
Do-It-Yourself fundraising allows your constituents to choose how they would like to participate any time of year and anywhere in the world.

Leverage TeamRaiser to get your supporters involved in a way that closely resonates with them.
TeamRaiser is integrated nicely with Luminate Online, allowing you to manage all your online initiatives in one place.
As Blackbaud’s newest acquisition, JustGiving is a fundraising leader in the U.K. market that adds a new personal crowdfunding capability (individuals raising funds for other individuals). JustGiving is a one-stop-shop that enables all types of fundraising and giving.
The platform helps you and your fundraisers champion your story and maximize donations from a series of activities that helps you build bonds between you and your supporters and advocates. As of right now, it doesn’t integrate with Raiser’s Edge which is a negative compared to the other two platforms, it does however integrate with EventBrite.
