The key to online fundraising success during an online peer-to-peer campaign is to support and engage your fundraisers. But it can be tough to know how much communication is too much. Going radio silent isn’t good, but you don’t want to bombard your fundraisers with updates and risk tiring (or worse—annoying!) them either. That’s called fundraiser fatigue, and it can happen. The trick is to find balance in the frequency, value, and tone of your communications. Doing so will help you keep fundraisers updated on campaign progress, equip them with the tools they need, and connect them to your cause.

The two planned for April 29 and May 27 are far more than just a few code tweaks; they’re hearty – meaty, requiring some time to really sink your teeth into them (and I’m not just saying this because I’m ready for breakfast).
