People give to people NFP Synergy CAMEO Fundraising events 2013 • Relationships are the key reason behind sponsorship – 62% of the public said the fact that the person taking part was a close friend or family member led them to donate. Other reasons for sponsorship were considered less important and were selected by around a third of the public. • Similarly, most people are motivated to take part in an active sponsored event because their friends and family are also taking part (43%). However the gap between this and other motivating factors is much smaller – the next most popular reason is ‘support for the cause’ (39%).
