Events

Blue Sea's peer-to-peer events will help your charity fundraise like never before.

A successful peer-to-peer fundraising event is a fantastic addition to your yearly fundraising plan. When you work with Blue Sea and tap into one of our national P2P events, you save hundreds of hours and tens of thousands of dollars. We do the heavy lifting, working year-round getting everything ready so your charity can step right in and begin recruiting, fundraising, and hosting without distraction.


We offer three, national peer-to-peer events which focus on three cause types below. Each is built on the premise that the more you fundraise, the more you keep. Partner grant payouts range between 70% and 85%.
