CharityEngine provides an easy way to create a peer-to-peer fundraising tool to allow your donors to generate support and generate fundraising within their own networks. Through CharityEngine's Peer-to-Peer feature, you can create a microsite for your individual and/or teams to fundraise for your organization. This microsite can be customized to display all the information needed for donors and participants to join. The microsite tool allows easy access to create and manage the event as well as provide up to date information on the tickets sold and donations that have been made.
- Before introducing Peer-to-Peer with your donors/fundraisers, please initiate a microsite (see Step 1 below).
- If this is an organization hosted event, please be sure to establish your event in the Events and Volunteers application first. Please see this article here for event set up.
- CharityEngine strongly discourages the usage of iframes for usage of site integration. Visit our article here regarding browser changes and impact when using iframes.

FAQs & Other Suggested Materials
Q. Our organization is hosting a Peer-to-Peer event. How do I create an event needed for the "Hosted Event" type?
A. Before beginning with your peer-to-peer set-up, please create your event within the Events & Volunteer app. Follow this article for event set up steps.
Q. What is the image size needed for social media sharing?
A. In order to display organizational images/logos through platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, CharityEngine recommends images of 1200X1200 pixels. As a note, Facebook recommends a size of 1200 X 630 pixels. Smaller images will be resized by Facebook and result in distorted images. Once you have your image you can upload by navigating to the Configuration App > General > General > Account Setting > General > expand Other Information (Optional) > Social Sharing Image > click select different image > upload image > SAVE.
