History

The Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum (formerly the Run Walk Ride Fundraising Council) was launched in May 2007 to support the professionals who manage the events that raise in excess of $1 billion a year for American charities

Here’s our “elevator description”: The Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum supports the thousands of professional who manage peer-to-peer fundraising programs that engage millions of people to raise billions for good causes. Our conference and workshops, webinars and online services provide access to practical information on producing more successful programs, valuable contacts and recognition for outstanding work.

We remain energized by our work supporting event managers with benchmarking statistics and best practice information that helps accelerate their progress.

Our annual Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Thirty ranking by revenue of the largest athletic event fundraising programs has quickly become the most cited piece of research in this field.

In 2008, we added an award program:  The Cash, Sweat & Tears Award recognizes an inspiring volunteer participant.
