Peer-to-peer fundraising is a feature we introduced in 2021 that enables alumni, friends, fans and supporters to become ambassadors and help raise money for the programs, teams and scholarships they care about most.

Just go to the team, program or area you are interested in raising money for, and click the "FUNDRAISE" button to create your peer-to-peer fundraising page that you can share via email and on social media.

Step-by-step instructions for creating a page can be found here.


Q. What if there is not a page already created for the program, team or scholarship that I am looking to peer-to-peer fundraise for? 

If there is no pre-existing page for the program or scholarship that you wish to peer-to-peer  fundraise for (Ex: TKE Scholarship, the Marching Band, The Eagle Eye, etc.), please click on the Area of Greatest Need tile on the homepage.

From there click "FUNDRAISE" to create your shareable peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. You will need to specify in the text box when creating your page the specific program, team or scholarship that you are aiming to raise money for.
