How it works

In partnership with PayPal Giving Fund, a number of charities already benefit from donations made through a limited set of fundraising tools on Facebook. However there are many other fundraising features that charities can use. Completing the application process allows Facebook to properly verify a charity’s status to give eligible charities access to more fundraising tools and features. The expanded set of fundraising features include:

  • Access to donation transaction reports.
  • Access to Facebook Fundraisers to benefit your charity.
  • Addition of a “Donate” button to your Page header.
