Team fundraising goal should reflect team members' individual fundraising goals
A team's fundraising goal should reflect the team member's individual fundraising goals.
For example, our Fall Fundo campaign has a default team fundraising goal of $500. Someone formed a team and set the team goal to $1,500 -- he had already raised $800 out of his individual goal of $1,000. Then people started joining his team. A new member also set an individual goal of $1,000. Three other team members had the default individual goals of $150. So the team as a whole is aiming to raise $2,450, but the team founder had set the goal to $1,500. As they all started fundraising, they very quickly started to reach their $1,500 team goal, even though there was a long way to go with the individual goals. The team members who were raising more money were concerned that their team members who hadn't raised any money wouldn't be as motivated because they had nearly reached their team goals. They got in touch with me and I noticed their individual goals were much higher and encouraged them to change their team goal to $2,500.
Instead of having team managers manually change the team goal as new team members join and as team members change their individual goals, I think it would make more sense and feel more intuirtive for fundraisers if their team's goals reflected the team members' individual goals.
Plus, a 10-member team should have a higher goal than a 3-member team. So it makes sense to have a default team goal, but to also make the team goal elastic based on number of people.
