On any given day, the average person is bombarded by dozens of marketing and fundraising communications from businesses and nonprofits. Last year there were over 100 billion marketing emails sent every day worldwide, and that doesn’t take into account the billions of social media posts made every single day around the world that inundate your constituents’ feeds.
To put it simply, it’s hard to break through the noise. And it won’t be getting any easier moving forward.
Over the last few weeks of our Online Fundraising Fundamentals series, we’ve walked through some of our most important tips for running a successful online fundraising program, building effective peer to peer fundraising campaigns and key elements of an effective fundraising email. Today, we’re going to get back to some of the foundational principles of fundraising in general and how they can apply to your online fundraising program to boost it's effectiveness.

As part of our Online Fundraising Fundamentals series, we’ll be spending every Wednesday for the next month giving you the tips and tricks you need to run a successful Peer-to-Peer fundraising campaign. Later in our series we’ll run through the actual process of setting up a Peer-to-Peer campaign using our Online Fundraising software. But, for now, let’s start at the beginning.
If you’ve read any of our past few posts you know we’re kind of obsessed with trying to help our clients grow their donor-base and expand their reach using peer-to-peer fundraising. That isn’t just because we know that charitable giving is expected to drop while the demand for services from the nonprofit sector steadily increases. And it’s not just because we know that people trust their friends far more than they trust us. It’s because it works. A well executed Peer to Peer fundraising campaign can increase your donations three-fold.
For many non-profits the idea of launching an online fundraising program can seem intimidating. That’s why starting today, we’re launching a series here on the Arreva blog in the hopes that we can pull back the curtain on some tips-and-tricks we’ve picked up through years of enabling thousands of nonprofits to raise money online.
Through this series, hopefully we can make this process a little less scary, and help some of you grow your donor-base while engaging with them in a whole new way online.
