How to create a fundraiser on Facebook for the ministry you support

Facebook allows you to raise money for a ministry (non-profit) that you wish to support.   You can do fundraisers for any occasion e.g. birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and more.  Below are some instructions of how to do a Fundraiser on Facebook.

When you are logged into Facebook, click on the Home tab at the top of the page.

Along the left-hand side of your home page, you will see under Explore the Fundraisers option.  Click on this.


You will be taken to a page for fundraisers.  Click on Raise Money.


This will bring up a dialog box where you can choose from a list of options.  Since you want to do a fundraiser for your chosen ministry, click on Nonprofit.


In the search bar, enter the official name of the ministry.  You may need to contact the ministry you wish to support and ask them their name that is listed with Facebook.  Be sure to enter exact spelling.  For example, the Saint Vincent dePaul Society of Muncie, IN is listed at Saint Vincent DePaul Society and Thrift Store.


Next you will be presented with a series of screens where you can indicate how much you want to raise and what is the deadline.


You are now set up to have fundraiser.
