What is it?
For the past five years, HHOC’s peer-to-peer campaign, 1400 for 1400 Scott, has acted as one of our two major annual fundraisers. Peer-to-peer fundraising is any fundraising effort that relies on peers reaching out to each other on behalf of a cause.
The event will kick off on February 1 when approximately 50 individuals or teams will be asked to raise a minimum of $1,400 as a nod to our House’s street address while competing to win the top fundraiser prize.
how does it work?
Participants raise funds on behalf of Hospitality House by reaching out to their social networks (think Facebook friends, your realtor, family members, or workout buddies!) to simply share how Hospitality House of Charlotte is changing lives of patients in caregivers seeking care in Charlotte’s medical community.
You don’t do it alone! Along with 50 fellow participants, we are here to support you! We provide everything you need from email templates, fundraising tips and guides, social media graphics for you to easily share your campaign page.
This type of campaign rallies communities, builds new networks of donors, and increases the visibility of the need for what Hospitality House provides to patients and caregivers.
