During this nonprofit webinar, we will show you step-by-step proven tactics and strategies to successfully set up and run a great Facebook Fundraising campaign for your nonprofit.

Your presenter, Julia Campbell, has personally assisted many small and medium-size nonprofits with successful Facebook fundraising campaigns. During this nonprofit webinar, she will share her personal real world in the trenches experience of how she has helped other small and large nonprofits be successful with Facebook Fundraising campaigns.

Facebook’s Nonprofit Fundraising tools have topped $1 billion from 20 million people since being introduced on the platform three years ago.

In this 90-minute live, interactive nonprofit webinar, you’ll learn…

Step 1: How to Lay the Foundation for a Successful Fundraising Campaign

  • How to identify and understand what makes some nonprofit Facebook Fundraising campaigns succeed while others flounder

  • How to sign up and get registered with Facebook Fundraising tools for nonprofits

  • How to build an engaged community on Facebook that will be excited to support you.

Step 2: How to Plan Your Facebook Fundraising Campaign

  • How to find out what makes your Facebook fans tick

  • How to identify the messages that will resonate with your Facebook community

  • How to find the best stories to share during the campaign

  • How to create a nonprofit Facebook Fundraising Toolkit

Step 3: How to Launch Your Facebook Fundraising Campaign

  • How to create a “Launch Team” to help spread the word

  • Real-world examples of nonprofit websites, email campaigns, and social media campaigns that worked

Step 4: How to Thank and Acknowledge Your Facebook Fundraisers and Donors

  • How to thank and acknowledge your Facebook Fundraisers

  • How to thank and acknowledge your new donors that came from Facebook (even if many of them don’t share their contact information)

Step 5: How to Keep Momentum and Build on Success

  • How to continue to reach your donors in a crowded digital landscape

Throughout all the steps, we will show you real-world examples from nonprofits who were successful with Facebook Fundraising.

The power and potential of Facebook Fundraising tools cannot be ignored - but finding success raising money on the world’s largest social network requires more than just setting up an account.

After you register your nonprofit and get started using Facebook Fundraising tools, what next? How do you really get your supporters engaged, creating birthday fundraisers, using the donate button, and promoting your fundraising campaigns?  

The good news is that it IS possible to build an online community of donors on Facebook - even if you don’t have a traditionally “sexy” cause, a ton of staff, and a huge budget! We will show you the proven strategies and battle-tested tools that you need to succeed!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Does Facebook fundraising really work for small nonprofits?

A.  Yes! According to Facebook, over 750,000 nonprofits have used  Facebook’s fundraising tools  since the platform rolled out the feature in 2015. Nonprofits of “moderate size” (meaning they have between 1K-10K Page Likes) have raised the most! It’s not just the charity: water and Humane Society’s of the world that can succeed with these tools – your organization can too!

Q. Do I have to have a “sexy” cause or puppies and children to raise money on Facebook?

A.  No! In the years since Facebook has released its suite of Fundraising tools, I have worked with research organizations and legal service organizations to raise money on Facebook. You DO have to have a strategy and a compelling reason to ask for money - setting up the donate button by itself won’t work.  

Q. Do I have to spend a lot of money on Facebook Ads for this to work?

A.  I’ll discuss this in more detail in the webinar, but you do not have to run any Facebook Ads to have a successful Facebook Fundraiser. It may be a part of your strategy, but that depends on your budget and your overall fundraising goal. It’s not a requirement for success.

Q. Do we have to have a full-time staff person to manage this?

A.  No! It does take time, effort, and a bit of creativity, but it does not have to be a full-time job.
