Twenty of America’s thirty largest programs grew in 2023 and the Top 30 raised $1.1 billion.

“Now that mass group activities are considered a normal part of life, the Top 30’s growth is also back to normal levels,” said P2PPF President David Hessekiel.   In 2022 collective growth topped 18%, but that followed two years of far steeper revenue drops because the pandemic shut down in-person events.

The 18th annual edition of the Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Top 30 Survey is sponsored by Charity Dynamics, a technology product and services provider to nonprofits.

“We are always honored to help share and celebrate the Top 30 performance outcomes and this year is no different,” said Harry Veening, General Manager of Charity Dynamics. “Despite a difficult economic climate in 2023, the collective gross fundraising revenue of the Top 30 was up. It is clear that peer-to-peer fundraising remains a strong and healthy revenue channel for nonprofits. At a time when community among constituents is so important for donor retention, these local community-building events are absolutely worth continued investment.”

Among the findings sure to be of greatest interest to industry followers:

“Throughout 2023, numerous leading fundraising initiatives witnessed notable boosts in both participation and revenue. Their success was rooted in a strategic return to the core values of peer-to-peer fundraising: fostering community engagement and nurturing relationships. Meanwhile, they also embraced fresh marketing approaches and cutting-edge technologies, propelling them to connect with previously untapped audiences,” explained Marcie Maxwell, managing director of the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum.

The summary and complete data set submitted for this research by more than 94 US programs is available at no charge to members of the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum and attendees at this year’s conference.
