In November 2015, Facebook started testing new tools to help nonprofits raise money from people on Facebook. Today we are expanding these tools to include fundraisers, which will enable people to raise money for US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits directly on Facebook. Fundraisers allow supporters to set up a dedicated page to share their story, tell others about a nonprofit’s mission and rally around a fundraising goal.
With more than 100 nonprofits to choose from at launch, people in the US can create fundraisers and people in 39 countries can donate to their friends’ fundraisers. We will be looking to expand the list of nonprofits you can fundraise for soon, with a goal of making this available widely to 501(c)(3) organizations over the coming year. We are also inviting any US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit to apply here to get access to this new tool.
