How to delete a fundraiser on Facebook
Facebook Fundraiser FAQ
What data will Facebook receive once I connect my personal page to Facebook Fundraisers? When connecting your personal fundraising page to a Facebook Fundraiser, Facebook receives information on the campaign you are fundraising for, your personal story from your personal page at the time of the connection. On an ongoing basis, Facebook also receives updates on the amount of funds you have raised in order to keep the thermometer on your Facebook Fundraiser synced to the thermometer on your personal page. Facebook does not receive information about donors that donate through your personal page.
How is creating a Facebook Fundraiser different than using the previous MuckFest MS Facebook app, or just sharing a link to my personal page on Facebook? Unlike a basic link share, Facebook Fundraiser posts are rich and dynamic posts that motivate more friends to donate quickly. Posts through a Facebook Fundraiser include an , story, thermometer, donate button, and more. You can easily invite all of your friends, and they will see updates from the fundraiser, as well as from other friends who donate. Your friends are also encouraged to invite and share with their friends, which means you may receive gifts from people you don’t even know who were moved by your story! Facebook also provides you with a quick and easy way to check your progress including donations that come in through your MuckFest MS page or your Facebook Fundraiser.
How come my donation is shown on the personal page honor roll as “Facebook Fundraiser”? Because the personal page does not allow for public display rules the donor could set on Facebook (i.e., Friends only, friends of friends, only me), all donors display on the personal page as “Facebook Fundraiser”. Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like to update the name on the honor roll to show your name.
I updated my story or photograph through my Participant Center. Will it change on my Facebook Fundraiser as well? No. Following the creation of your Facebook Fundraiser, updates to your story on your personal page will not be reflected on your Facebook Fundraiser. Your photo is never automatically pulled into your Facebook Fundraiser, either at the beginning or later. This allows you to tailor content appropriately in either location.
Will donors to my Facebook Fundraiser receive a receipt? When someone makes a donation through a Facebook Fundraiser, a payment receipt is sent to the primary email listed on the donor’s Facebook account. This payment receipt includes the organization’s tax ID number and confirms that the person has made a donation as a charitable contribution and that they’re not receiving any goods or services in return.
