About recurring donations

Monthly giving is an important part of any charity’s fundraising efforts. Recurring donations are especially valuable because they are a reliable source of income. People donating to charities using Facebook Payments now have the option to give one-off or monthly.

How-to

You can make a recurring donation on the Page of the charity that you’d like to donate to. Once there:

  1. Click or tap Donate.
  2. In the Donation frequency section, select Monthly donation.
  3. Click or tap Donate. The amount that you’re donating will appear on the right -hand side of the button.

Note that:

  • Once you’ve clicked Donate, your first donation will be processed immediately. You’ll then receive an email confirmation that provides the details of your donation and when to expect to make future payments.
  • Recurring donations will be processed on the same date every month for the amount that you choose on the initial payments screen. Note that there may be exceptions in certain months, such as February.
  • Recurring donations are only available for charity fundraisers.

You can cancel your recurring donation at any time by going to your payment settings. Once there:

  1. Go to the Recurring payments section. If you have recurring donations set up, you’ll see this at the top of your screen.
  2. Click or tap the name of the charity that you want to cancel donations to.
  3. Select Cancel recurring donation.
  4. Click or tap the Cancel Recurring Donation button to cancel future donations.

Once you’ve finished, you can see the date on which your recurring donation was cancelled under Status. If you mistakenly select recurring donations, please fill in this form to let us know.

Note that if a donor opts in to recurring donations, they will receive an email confirmation each time their card is charged.
