Looking for a way to prepare your peer-to-peer fundraisers before your event starts? Try a participant toolkit! You can include an overview of your organization and/or event and its purpose, fundraising tips, promotional materials, and more. Here are a few examples from current Qgiv clients!

Overview Sheet

Think of your participants as advocates for your organization. You want your advocates to know their stuff, right? Help them out by providing an overview of your organization, your event, and your event’s purpose. When participants are talking about your peer-to-peer event, they’ll know just what to say! Here’s a great example from Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass.

Participant Fundraising Tips

Ideally, all events would include a pre-event fundraising workshop of some sort, be it in the form of a meet-up or a video. If you can’t do that, be sure to at least provide your participants with a list of tips to help them be more effective fundraisers. Here’s a tip sheet we developed for Qgiv clients to use.

We really like this tip sheet from the Humane Society of Vero Beach, which provides tips specific to teams participating in their Bark in the Park event.

BONUS: Need a little inspiration? You can download their entire participant fundraising toolkit below!  It’s awesome!

Frequently Asked Questions

Create a page answering important questions about donation deadlines, cash and check donations, event rules, maps, and any other important information participants might need to know before the event. SPCA Florida provided a comprehensive list of FAQs for their registrants—below is just a sample of their list.

Health First preemptively answered a frequently asked question by providing a handy course map for Health First Day at the Great Florida Air Show. 

Promotional Materials

Let your participants promote your organization and event! Be sure to include some printable handouts, posters, and images they can distribute to potential supporters. Check out the printable postcard that Missing Grace Foundation included for their participants to send out before their Minnesota Hope & Hearts Run/Memorial Walk.
