Organizational Matches & Challenges
Thursday, April 6 at 10:00AM
You may recall that NH Gives had a bonus pool of side-wide matching dollars last year of more than $200,000. Did you know that organizations that secured matches for themselves leveraged more than 5 times that much? Only 26% of participating organizations secured matches or challenges, but those organizations raised nearly 4 times as much on average as other organizations. The 25% of organizations that had matches raised 57% of the online donations.
If you haven't invested in this strategy before, this is the year. How much time and energy would you invest to quadruple your online donations? If you're not sure how to effectively engage supporters for matches and challenges, the panelists on this webinar will let you in on their secrets to success.

Peer-to-Peer Fundraising and Donor Acquisition
Tuesday, April 18 at 10:00AM
Have you ever given to a charity fundraiser because a friend or family member asked you to give? That is the power of peer-to-peer fundraising. Your ardent supporters are your most direct path to new donor acquisition.
As a result of reaching new donors, nonprofits who utilized P2P fundraisers raised more than twice as much in 2022 than those who did not and had nearly 3 times higher average donation.
How much time do you need to commit to building your P2P strategy? What actions will lead to the best return on that investment of time. Hear from organizations that had success with peer to peer fundraisers. They will share tips and tricks to inspire your P2P strategy.
