About Our Fundraising Partnerships

Facebook works with GuideStar.org and Network for Good to make it possible for people to donate to more than 750,000 US 501(c)(3) charities in the United States.

How Does Facebook Work with Partners?

In the United States, we work with GuideStar to populate Facebook’s nonprofit database, and Network for Good’s Donor Advised Fund to disburse funds to nonprofits that have not signed up and been approved to collect donations directly on Facebook using Facebook Payments.

What’s the Difference Between Facebook Payments and Network for Good?

US-based 501(c)(3) organizations with a verified Page can use Facebook donation tools and receive distributions if they apply and are approved by Facebook Payments. If your nonprofit has not applied and is a US-based 501(c)(3) organization, you could receive distributions through the Network for Good Donor Advised Fund if you are listed in GuideStar. Learn more about the requirements.

However, there are different features, fees and payment timing when you sign up to receive donations through Facebook payments: you’ll get access to Facebook’s reporting tools, contact information for donors that opt-in to receive emails from your organization, and links to all of your fundraisers on Facebook. You’ll also be able to use the donate button to collect donations directly on Facebook.
