What is Peer-to-peer fundraising?
Peer-to-Peer Fundraising is a way for San Antonio Pets Alive! supporters to help save lives through networking and philanthropy.
Peer-to-Peer Fundraising allows you to create personalized fundraisers to support the cause of your choice. You then reach out to your network to encourage participation. You can also easily update your page.
How do I fundraise?
The first step is visiting the SAPA! Big Give Page and clicking on the “Fundraise” button. Now you’re ready to customize your own page! Tell your story, add photos, make it all about why YOU support SAPA! Next, reach out to your network both online (emails and social media) and in-person to let them know that you are helping nonprofits in your community. Click here for Downloadable Resources.
