    I figured rather than doing hours of research, I would come to the Oracles for their wisdom!  :-)  So glad to be part of this community.

    We are in the midst of a potential CRM change.  Currently using Raiser's Edge 7.

    At the same time, our Events department wants to set up some peer-to-peer fundraising. Our CFO doesn't want to use GoFundMe (their preferred option), so I've been tasked with finding alternatives.

    Is it possible to purchase a P2P product that is standalone, i.e., you don't have to buy a CRM to get the P2P? I know it's probably not ideal, but we're looking for a stop-gap measure for the next year or so.

    Can this be done? If so, who does it and does it well? And, or course, affordably...

    Thanks so much.

    Matt, you might be interested in checking out Classy or Donor Drive.  At NAMI, we currently use the Donor Drive platform for our peer to peer fundraising and online giving however, we are moving to Classy in early 2019.  Our NAMI Walks program uses Donor Drive across many different organizations (we are a federated nonprofit) and we will stay on Donor Drive for this program.  Both can be used standalone or you can integrate them with a CRM.

    Hi Matt,
    We offer a free, standalone peer-to-peer fundraising service, called Rise Fundraiser  . It has as comparable feature set to gofundme or Classy, but as a social enterprise ourselves, we do not charge for the standard version.  If you're interested in a demo, or more information, please don't hesitate to contact me at 425-435-2650 or japhet@round.glass
