Facebook Fundraisers are bringing in loads of success stories for all kinds of nonprofits. Look at Stop Soldier Suicide, Dressember, One Tail at a Time, and Barbells for Boobs!
If your nonprofit is interested in diving into the Facebook deep end, you'll need to give your potential donors a clear, concise, and compelling how-to so they can get their personalized fundraisers up and running in a snap. We've taken a (literal) page from Action Against Hunger's site and built a template that any organization can customize just for that purpose. For more cool examples, check out Chick Mission's fundraiser resources and our very own Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Toolkit for Nonprofit Supporters.
