This is the new one-stop shop for information and instruction about how Give Lively members use our powerful, practical and free fundraising technology. For more background support about Give Lively, go to our introductory FAQ pages.
Peer-to-Peer Fundraising enables your supporters to create their own fundraising pages and raise money on your behalf. It helps nonprofits build engagement, connect with new donors, and raise more with less effort.
Peer-to-Peer Fundraising is automatically incorporated into your core fundraising page, as well as any campaign pages your nonprofit uses to raise money.
To start a new Peer-to-Peer page, supporters simply visit your fundraising page and click "I Want To Fundraise For This." They are then directed to register, come up with a fundraising goal, and write a note to donors.
IMPORTANT: Supporters are only able to create one Give Lively user account per email address. Through that account, each supporter is limited to one personal fundraising page per nonprofit campaign, but can still support multiple campaigns of one nonprofit, as well as the campaigns of other nonprofits.
When someone donates using a Peer-to-Peer Fundraising page, you will see the donation in the Nonprofit Admin Portal and in Stripe. If the Peer-to-Peer Fundraising page is associated with one of your campaigns, all funds it raises will roll into your campaign's goal.
To see all of the Peer-to-Peer Fundraising pages supporting your nonprofit, go to the Nonprofit Admin Portal and click "P2P Pages" in the top navigation menu.
You do not have to do anything special to enable Peer-to-Peer Fundraising. It is automatically incorporated into your core fundraising page, as well as any campaign pages your nonprofit uses to raise money.
You can however turn it on and off. To do so, log in to the Nonprofit Admin Portal and click "Core Profile" in the top navigation menu. Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for "Enable Peer to Peer Fundraisers" with the clickable box in front of it. A check mark in the box means Peer-to-Peer Fundraising is enabled. Click on the box to remove the check mark and disable it.
