Using Facebook for Non-Profit & Charity Fundraising
Have a non-profit or charity fundraiser that you need to raise money for? If so, your non-profit or charity organization can increase your donor base and volume of donations by using our non-profit and charity fundraising and social giving platform.
As spring sets in and the sunny summer is just around the corner, communities and non-profits alike are heading into fundraising season. But sometimes it's difficult to get the word out on the cause you're passionate about due to lack of time or limited access to the best tools.
What we've learned at Facebook is that with more than 18 million active users across the country, U.S. charities have the potential to use the social network to engage and inspire people to tap into their connections, helping to raise awareness and donations.
A recent report by Artez Interactive found Facebook had the greatest impact on fundraising when participants raised donations through families and friends. Why? Because people care about the causes that their friends care about.
In fact, in an average peer-to-peer or "crowd sourced" campaign, 15 to 18 per cent of donations are referred from Facebook. In scenarios where a fundraising campaign allows registrants to use a social login, those who connect their accounts to Facebook will raise on average 40 per cent more than those who do not, plus earn 30 per cent more donations!
Research shows that a person is more likely to donate $25
and receive a gift
Situation: The Non-Profit Organization needs to raise $50,000
quickly with minimal cost.
rather than just clicking the "Donate"button.
The Organization has 200 FB friends that will donate $25 and receive
a gift (nice pen, etc.), then "shares" it with their FB friends = $5,000
These friends have 50 friends each (total of 10,000 friends)
and just 10% of those (1000) donate $25 for a gift = $25,000
With just these 1200 FB friends, it brings in $30,000*
*net profit excluding FAC setup and products = $24,100
Those 1200 friends have 10 friends (12,000 friends) and just 10% of
those (1200) contribute and also get a gift @ $25 = $30,000
This can easily be accomplished in weeks, not months!
In addition, they are now building name recognition with 2,400
walking billboards out in public places!!
And, so it continues on and on...You now have 2,400 FB supporting
friends and if only 10% of their friends donate and share...I think you
get the picture!

Accept Membership Dues on your Website
Membership programs may have many practical benefits, but the biggest benefit to an organization is their potential to increase donor loyalty. Someone who sees themself as a member of an organization will generally feel more ownership and involvement in an organization than someone who sees themself just as a donor, even if the member never has any more concrete involvement than simply giving money.
In addition, enrolling a donor as a member gives a concrete reason for sporadic donors to become regular donors, at least once a year when their membership renewal comes due.
How do you manage joining and expiration of membership?
Some organizations keep memberships simple - beginning of year to end of year. In this case, there is often a membership drive at the end of the year where the organization expects to get most of their new members. People who join in between are still members only until the end of the year. Another simple way to handle it is that anyone who gives over a certain amount automatically gets a membership. A more robust membership is one where you pay dues and your membership is valid for 12 months from that date.
Keeping track of a simple membership program that runs the calendar year can be quite easy, and can be managed with your PayPal account.
PayPal merchant fees are discounted for registered charities with 501(c)(3) status.>
