Create a Facebook Fundraiser

How it works

Have a birthday or special celebration coming up? Why not ask your family and friends for a donation that will make a difference, instead of buying you a gift?

Setting up a Facebook fundraiser is a quick and simple process, with rewarding results!

Fundraising on Facebook is a great way to raise awareness and funds for a cause that is important to you. You can do this by dedicating a special occasion such as your birthday or anniversary to the cause, or by asking your friends and family to make a donation in lieu of a Christmas or wedding gift.

The following steps provide instruction on how to easily set up your fundraiser, offering tips and ideas to maximise interest among your friends and family and to successfully reach your fundraising target.

Creating a Facebook Fundraiser is as simple as 1, 2, 3! Follow the steps below:

Fill in the details for your fundraiser

Click 'Create' to make your fundraiser go live!

Don’t forget to share your fundraiser with your family and friends! You can share the link on any of your social media accounts or even via email or text.

People can donate to your fundraiser in just a few clicks without leaving Facebook, with all funds (fee free) going directly to Paralympics Australia from PayPal Giving Fund.

Once your fundraiser is complete, be sure to thank the people who donated and share details about how much money you raised, and the impact that money has made. People will be happy to know the outcome and proud to hear how their contribution has made a difference.
