Revenue Grew 8.9% For Top 30 Canadian P2P Fundraising Programs in 2023

Nonprofits producing Canada’s Top 30 peer-to-peer fundraising programs achieved their second year of post-pandemic growth by collectively increasing fundraising revenue 8.9% in 2023.

Twenty-two of Canada’s 30 largest programs grew in 2023 and the Top 30 raised $187.4 million.

“Now that mass group activities are considered a normal part of life, the Canadian Top 30’s growth is also back to normal levels,” said David Hessekiel, president of the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum which produced the report.  Back in 2022 collective growth topped 19.5%, but that followed two years of far steeper revenue drops because the pandemic shut down in-person events.

The Canadian Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Top 30 Survey is sponsored by Charity Dynamics, a technology product and services provider to nonprofits.

“As a Canadian and former nonprofit employee myself, it is very exciting to see the growth in both funds raised and participation overall for the Top 30 performers. And more programs grew in 2023 than 2022,” said Harry Veening, General Manager of Charity Dynamics. “Of the few programs that experienced a decline in registrants, all saw impressive gross revenue increases over 2022. To me, these achievements speak to the strength and perseverance of our philanthropic culture here in Canada. Our communities are powerful and resilient.”

Study highlights include:

“Many of the top fundraising programs that achieved significant participation and revenue growth in 2023 dedicated themselves to revisiting fundamental principles of peer-to-peer fundraising – community engagement and relationship-building, while also adopting new marketing strategies and innovative technologies to expand their reach to new audiences,” said Marcie Maxwell, managing director of the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum. 

The summary and complete data set submitted for this research by more than 38 Canadian programs is available at no charge to members of the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum and attendees at this year’s conference.
