Create a Facebook Fundraiser

How to create a Facebook Fundraiser for eChildhood

Here at eChildhood we’re inspired by you, our supporters, and we're so grateful for your financial contributions that means we can continue to do our work.

Facebook doesn’t charge non-profits a fee for fundraising on their platform, so every dollar donated goes directly to supporting our mission. Here’s how you can join in rallying your community to protect children and young people from the harms of online pornography.

Step 1: Open Facebook & navigate to our page

Visit eChildhood Facebook page, then click on “Fundraisers” on the top bar.

Step 2: Click the “Raise Money” button

This creates a shareable fundraiser that you’ll soon customize with a title, a goal amount, and an end date.

Step 3: Personalize it!

Remember, your friends and family will be interested in the cause, but they are primarily interested in you. Add your own text to let them know why you are fundraising for eChildhood. Share why eChildhood’s mission is meaningful to you and how donating to your fundraiser will help protect kids from online pornography. Finally, fill in your goal amount.

Step 4: Customize the photo

Choose a photo that resonates the most with you. Once you’ve selected the photo, click “Done.”

Step 5: Go live and kick things off!

Select “Create” to publish your fundraiser and share it to your Facebook timeline. Nobody likes to be first. It’s always a good idea to kick off your fundraiser by making the first contribution. Potential supporters will know that you are serious about the issue.

Step 6: Spread the word

Give your fundraiser a little momentum by reaching out to your “inner circle” directly on their Facebook profile or via a DM, text message, or phone call. A personal message asking for their support will go a long way. Keep the momentum going and get the rest of your friends involved! Click “invite” or “share” at the top of your fundraising page to reach out to our friends and family directly. As your end date approaches, be persistent in posting your fundraiser to your profile and make sure to keep your community updated on your progress.
