The concept of peer-to-peer fundraising for a cause is nothing new. Many of us have been asked to sponsor a friend in a walk or run. Kids have raised money for charities for their mitzvah projects for years. Adults have asked friends to make donations in lieu of gifts for big birthdays and anniversaries. Is there a more worthwhile way to celebrate a milestone event?

JF&CS is leveraging technology to make it easier than ever for our supporters to help us raise additional funds. Moving beyond the traditional appeal letters, our peer-to-peer fundraising platform provides the bar mitzvah boy or birthday girl with a tool to turn his or her passion into action, complete with the ability to reach out to a network of friends through email and social media and to illustrate what their donations will support. If you want to make an upcoming milestone more meaningful, consider the power of peer-to-peer fundraising and the difference it can make. Learn more here.
