We like to think of team members as a part of a spider web. The more team members you have supporting your cause, the larger your web grows and the farther the reach. Think about it...if you can get each of ten of your best supporters to join your team and set up fundraisers for your Challenge campaign, you’re immediately tapping into their own personal network of friends and family. They will talk about your cause and ask for donations and all of a sudden you have a network effect giving you more exposure and helping you to raise more money.
We’ve found that organizations with 10+ team members increase the number of donations given to that Challenge campaign by 3x. And teams who end up winning a Challenge have, on average, 55 team members.
Moral of the story? Get fundraisers. And lots of ‘em.
