How to Set Up a Facebook Fundraiser for T’ruah
Log in to your Facebook account and click “Fundraisers” in the left menu of your news feed. The option to create a fundraiser appears at the bottom, under the heading “Create.” From here, you’ll be directed through the process of setting up your fundraiser. Facebook’s prompts are very easy to follow and the entire process takes just a few minutes. We’ve listed the steps below. If you are having any trouble, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for help. (Facebook also has an FAQ page for fundraisers that you may find useful.)
1. Click the blue rectangle that says “Raise Money.”
2. Click “Get Started,” and then, when asked, “Who are you raising money for,” select “Nonprofit” (the middle option).
You’ll then be prompted to select a nonprofit. Type in “T’ruah.” You’ll then be prompted to select an end date for the fundraiser, as well as the amount you want to raise.
3. Next, you will be prompted to title your fundraiser and write a description explaining your “story.”
If you prefer, Facebook will automatically just call it “[Your Name]’s Fundraiser for T’ruah” and insert a description of T’ruah from our Facebook page.
4. You will be prompted to select a cover photo for your fundraiser.
Facebook will automatically suggest a photo from T’ruah’s Facebook page. However, if you prefer, you can upload another photo. After you choose your photo, click the blue rectangle that says “Create.”
5. Your Facebook fundraiser is now ready!
Your fundraiser will appear on your timeline, and some friends may see it in their news feeds. However, you’ll also want to invite your Facebook friends to donate (Facebook will prompt you to do this). You may also want to copy the link Facebook provides and spread the word to friends via email and other social media platforms.
