ACTIVATE YOUR FACEBOOK FUNDRAISER

Did you know those who fundraise on Facebook raise an average of $150 more?

By using our custom Facebook tool, you can connect your Carry Forward fundraising page directly to a Facebook Fundraiser. This allows you to easily collect donations on Facebook and have them automatically display on your WWP fundraising page — it’s pretty magical! (Note: you must activate your Facebook Fundraiser through your Dashboard for everything to work correctly.)

 

It takes 3 minutes or less to get set up. Here’s how:

 

Step 1: Log in to your fundraising dashboard and select “Create a Facebook Fundraiser.”

Step 2: Log in to Facebook and allow access to your Carry Forward fundraising page.

Step 3: Head to Facebook to view your fundraiser and customize your fundraising message.

That’s it! Your Facebook Fundraiser is now connected. You can share your Facebook Fundraiser and ask your friends and family to give.
