How to Start a Facebook Fundraiser

If you are looking for a fun and easy way to support your favorite charity, Facebook Fundraisers are a great place to start! It is super simple to get started and supports the non profit of your choice with donations and spreading the word about their work to your friends and family. Facebook Fundraisers are a great way to rally your friends, family, and community to join you in making a difference. 

Here is a step-by-step guide to help you get started!

Step 1: Navigate to Fundraisers

If you’re on your phone, open the Facebook app and click the “Explore” tab. If you’re on your computer, look for the “Fundraisers” link in the left-hand menu.

Step 2: Choose Your Charity

Once in the Fundraisers section, click the “Raise Money” button. Next, select the nonprofit or charitable organization you’d like to support from the list of organizations. If you need help finding your favorite charity, you can easily search for them by name.

Step 3: Set Your Fundraiser Goal and End Date

Next, think about how much money you’d like to raise for your cause. It could be as little as $50 or as much as $5,000 – every penny counts! To create excitement, pick a date to end your fundraiser and give your supporters a reason to act now.

Step 4: Tell Your Story

This is the perfect opportunity to share your passion and inspire others to join you in making a difference! People love to hear why this cause means so much to you. So, share personal stories, statistics, or anything that will convince others to support your fundraiser. If you need help explaining the nonprofit’s work, visit their website, “Our Work” page, or blog pages where they often have impact stories.

Step 5: Pick a Cover Photo

Next, choose a cover photo. Make sure it is either easily identifiable as you, the organization, or reflects the spirit of your cause.

Step 6: Spread the Word

Now that your Facebook fundraiser is live, it’s time to spread the word! Share your fundraiser with your Facebook friends, family, coworkers, and anyone else who might be interested in supporting your cause. The more people you reach, the greater your impact through donations and raising awareness! Many nonprofits have social media accounts you can tag to help reach more people, as well as toolkits to help you with any missing content or images! 

Step 7: Say Thank You

As donations start rolling in, make sure you thank your supporters! A simple thank-you goes a long way in making donors feel appreciated and valued. Plus, it encourages them to continue supporting your cause in the future.
