Your friends, family members, and coworkers all trust and care for you. Many organizations struggle with fundraising, because they don’t have any common ground with their donors. When you ask for donations from your friends and family members, you won’t have that problem!
You likely live in the same area as most of your friends and family members. You might see some of them every day! It’s easy to ask for donations from people that are close to you. Even if your peers don’t live in the immediate vicinity, you can likely get in touch with them quickly and easily.
You and your friends and family members might not agree on everything, but when it comes to raising money for a noble cause, worthwhile project, or meaningful event, you’re all probably on the same page. These shared values makes it easy to ask for donations from your peers.
