How to Create a Facebook Fundraising Campaign for Your Favorite Charity in 5 Easy Steps
As one of the leaders in almost everything these days, Facebook developed a fundraising platform for its nonprofit accounts. This is such an easy way for you to give to causes that you know are actual 501(c)(3) organizations. Facebook screens all the charity applications to ensure all are eligible for tax-exempt status. If the charity you select has set their accounts up properly, everyone who donates to your campaign will receive a donation receipt via their Facebook email address and have an opportunity to opt-in for the charities newsletter.
I made a short video on how to create your fundraiser to show how simple it is.
