Payment & Reporting

Details about payment, payout and reporting processes for fundraising using Facebook Payments or Fundraisers.

Payment Options

When you sign up to receive donations through Facebook Payments, you’ll get access to Facebook’s reporting tools, contact information for donors who 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. If you are a US-based 501(c)(3) organization and have not signed up through Facebook Payments, we will default to sending distributions through Network for Good’s Donor Advised Fund. However, there are different features, fees, and payment timing.

Payout Details

Nonprofits that have been approved to receive donations through Facebook Payments are paid on a biweekly basis based on when each donation comes in. Payout details are different for charities not registered with Facebook Payments. Learn more.

Fees

We’re committed to building products that make it secure and easy for people to contribute to the causes they care about directly on Facebook. To do this at scale, we have applied limited fees for our charitable giving products that go toward vetting, security, fraud prevention, operational costs and payment support.

Nonprofits that have signed up directly for Facebook’s fundraising tools pay a 5% fee. Donations to US-based 501(c)(3) organizations that receive funds through the Network for Good Donor Advised Fund, are assessed a 5.75% fee. Learn more.  

Reports

Nonprofits that have been approved to receive donations through Facebook Payments will have access to the following reports:
  • Daily Transaction Report – This report includes detailed information on each donation made to your organization, whether through the donate button or through a fundraiser. This report includes fields like First Name, Last Name, Amount Donated and Email Address (if the donor decides to share it).
