Tapping Into Supporters’ Networks
According to Classy’s 2023 State of Modern Philanthropy report, 80% of people who give to a peer-to-peer campaign are new to the organization. This shows the power and potential of peer-to-peer fundraising as an extremely effective acquisition tool. With Classy’s peer-to-peer fundraising platform, Girlstart can tap into the networks of its supporters to inspire donations and help connect other young girls with a life-changing opportunity.
Girlstart has transformed its fundraising processes on Classy in an upward trajectory. A fundraiser that generated $2,000 prior to Classy now generates $60,000+. The opportunities are endless, and Girlstart is taking advantage of every single one.
