ABOUT FACEBOOK FUNDRAISERS

Facebook recently opened fundraising to the public and starting it up is super easy - and FREE! Facebook also does not charge transaction fees (unlike every other donation platform). It’s a great way to support a cause that’s important to you and sharing with your friends and families only takes a few clicks.

TIPS

  • Taking the time to personalize your fundraiser with written descriptions of why you’re getting involved, photos, and videos is a great way to let people know this is special to you.

  • Let people know that a generous donor is matching gifts 2:1 so supporters can double their impact!

  • Give status updates to your social media network about how your fundraiser is going so you can drive more activity to your fundraiser

  • Invite your friends to the fundraiser by clicking the “invite button” on the right hand side

  • Say Thank You to your supporters. This is very important to ensure that the good times keep on coming and people feel empowered to continue the support.
