Almost every nonprofit has instituted some type of DIY fundraising vehicle. Many who’ve tried generic crowdfunding options haven’t done well. But those using peer-to-peer fundraising are discovering that some of their supporters excel at DIY. Among the nonprofits using DonorDrive for their DIY programs, we’re seeing a group of supporters who raise more in a DIY campaign than the amount of a typical board member’s check. In our research of DIY Superstars, the average DIY campaign raised $11,652.
Other statistics we found about DIY Superstars:
- They raised 51% of their total in the first week.
- They averaged raising $3,496 in their first two days.
- Their donations were 74% larger and they had 128% more of them than event participants.
