People use Facebook Fundraisers to support the causes and organizations that mean the most to them. Today, we’re announcing new features to help make fundraisers even more impactful and accessible:
- Expanding to Pages: Brand and public figure Pages can now fundraise for nonprofit causes. Nonprofit Pages can now also start fundraisers for their own causes.
- Adding Organizers: People can now invite friends to manage a fundraiser together, helping to expand their network of supporters.
Expanding to Pages
Brands and public figures use their Facebook Pages to connect with followers and fans, and now they can rally support around nonprofits as well. Nonprofits can now also start fundraisers on their Pages for their own causes. We’ve already seen momentum and success from Pages running fundraisers. Artists Tegan and Sara recently launched a Page fundraiser to help send 100 kids to LGBTQ summer camp in the US and Canada through the Tegan and Sara Foundation LGBTQ Camp Scholarship and in collaboration with the Ally Coalition.
Just like you can add a co-admin or moderator to a Facebook Group or a co-host to your Facebook Event, you can now add up to three friends to be organizers of your fundraiser to help you manage it and rally more supporters to reach your fundraising goals.
Each of these new features is aimed to help nonprofits raise more from their supporters through Facebook Fundraisers, and we’ll continue to work on tools to make fundraisers even more meaningful.
