As part of our effort to expand our charitable giving tools globally, we are excited to announce our partnership with PayPal Giving Fund Canada. This partnership will enable thousands of charities in PayPal Giving Fund Canada directory to access fundraising tools on Facebook for the first time and benefit from funds raised on Facebook.
Charities on Facebook receive 100% of the money donated to them.
When people create a fundraiser to benefit a charity or add a Donate button to a post, they select the charity they want to support from a list of eligible charities. That list will now include charities based in the UK, Australia, and Canada that are in the PayPal Giving Fund directory. PayPal Giving Fund is available across the UK, Canada and Australia. Please contact PayPal Giving Fund for more details on how to enrol on the PayPal Giving Fund. Soon, we’ll be rolling this out to people in any of the countries where Facebook fundraising is available.
