Being a donor isn't the only way you can make a difference during a Giving Day! You can also choose to be either a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) or a Free Agent Fundraiser!

A P2P fundraiser is an individual who has opted to raise funds for a specific organization participating in the Giving Day. All donations made on a P2P's page will be automatically contributed to the organization of the fundraiser's choice.

A Free Agent Fundraiser is someone who, rather than fundraising for a particular organization, fundraises for the Giving Day as a whole. When individuals choose to make a donation to a Free Agent Fundraiser's page, they will be brought to an empty donation menu where they can choose to give to any participating organization.

This article will show you how to sign up as either fundraiser! The first section will cover P2P fundraisers, while the second will cover Free Agent Fundraisers.

Note: Not all Giving Days will have Free Agent Fundraising enabled. If the Giving Day you are participating in does not have Free Agent Fundraising, you are still able to be a P2P Fundraiser.

How Do I Sign Up as a P2P Fundraiser?

1. Head to your Giving Day homepage to get started.

At the top of the Giving Day's homepage, type in the name of the organization that you'd like to fundraise for and click the search button.

2. Select the organization you'd like to support.

Once you've found the organization you'd like to support, click the "View Profile" button to head to that organization's individual profile.

3. Sign up as a Peer-to-Peer Fundraiser.

To sign up as a Peer-to-Peer Fundraiser for this organization, click the "Fundraise" button towards the top of the organization’s profile.

If you are not logged into a GiveGab account, you will be prompted to sign up using your full name, email address, and a password (which you will use to access your personal fundraising page). Once you’ve entered this information, click the "Submit" button.

4. Start fundraising!

You’ll then be brought directly to your Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Toolkit, which you’ll fill out to create your custom fundraising page for the selected organization!
