Do you remember going door-to-door as a kid? You’d ring the doorbell and then wait with a big smile, going over your script in your head, “I’m selling chocolate and gift wrap to raise money for my school. Would you like to order some?”

Once a strategy for school kids, P2P fundraising is now a strategy employed by just about every nonprofit.
