How To Create a Facebook Fundraiser

  • 23 September 2019

What is a Facebook Fundraiser?

Creating a Facebook Fundraiser is a great way to raise money for a charity or cause close to your heart. And it’s easier to set up than you think. A Facebook Fundraiser is also easy for people to donate to – it all takes place in Facebook so there’s no need to visit another site, and 100% of your gift will go to your chosen charity.

Why create a Facebook Fundraiser?

A lot of people set up a Facebook Fundraiser for their birthday. They then invite friends and family to give money to their chosen charity or cause instead of giving them birthday presents (or as well as birthday presents if the friends/family are particularly generous!).

But it doesn’t just have to be a birthday thing. You can set up a Facebook Fundraiser for a personal challenge you’re taking on, or to coincide with a campaign your chosen charity is running.

Or you could create a Fundraiser for no reason other than wanting to support your favourite cause.

How to Setup a Facebook Fundraiser

On your mobile:

  1. In the Facebook app, tap
  2. Scroll down and tap Fundraisers
  3. Tap Raise Money
  4. Select Charity
  5. Search for your chosen charity
  6. Fill in your details to tell Your Story and set a Goal Amount
  7. Tap Create – and that’s it! Your Facebook Fundraiser is up and running

On your computer:

  1. In Facebook, click on Create in the top menu bar
  2. Click on Fundraiser, then choose Charity
  3. Search for your chosen charity
  4. Fill in the details
  5. Click on Create – and you’re done!

Sharing your Facebook Fundraiser

Once your Fundraiser is up and running, make sure you share it with your friends and family. This is really easy…

  1. In your Fundraiser, tap/click on the Invite button
  2. Choose your Facebook friends to send the invite to
  3. That’s it!

Why Facebook Fundraise for Step by Step?

While you can of course fundraise for any charity you wish, we would love you to choose Step by Step. We prevent homelessness for hundreds of young people every year. We also offer mental health support and personal development opportunities to give young people the bright future they deserve. With youth homelessness and mental health issues both on the rise, we believe our work is more valuable than ever.

A Facebook Fundraiser is a great way to get friends and family supporting Step by Step – and 100% of the money you raise will come to us.

That’s it… Get Started!

You should now have all the info you need to set up your very own Facebook Fundraiser. However, if you need more help, or would like to know more about how your Fundraiser would support Step by Step, our friendly and expert Fundraising Team are always happy to help.
