Facebook now allows people to create DIY fundraisers to help support their favorite organizations and causes. Here’s how you can help raise money for NRDC.
1. Log on.
Visit NRDC’s Facebook page, then click on “Fundraisers” on the top bar.
2. Click the “Raise Money” button.
This creates a shareable page that you’ll soon customize with a title, a goal amount, and an end date.
3. Personalize your page.
Though you can choose to keep the automated title and description for your fundraiser about NRDC’s mission and why you’re raising money for our work, your friends are more likely to respond if you customize your message. Share why NRDC is meaningful to you and how donating to your fundraiser will be impactful at a time when our environment and health are under attack. Finally, fill in your goal amount.
4. Select a photo.
You can choose from our options, or you can upload your own photo. After you select the photo you want, click “Done.” You’ll have the option to move or crop it.
5. Go live.
Select “Create” to publish your fundraiser and share it to your Facebook timeline.
6. Spread the word!
To reach as many of your friends as possible, be persistent! Make sure to post your fundraiser at least a few times before your end date approaches. Here are two ways to follow up:
- Open your fundraiser page and click the “Share” button. From there, choose to either post it on your timeline again (and tag your friends) or send it in a private message.
- For those friends who may not visit Facebook often, copy and paste the URL into an e-mail.
On behalf of NRDC, thank you for your support! If you have any further questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
