Facebook Fundraising

 

Help raise funds to support the mission of the SUDC Foundation by hosting your own personal Fundraising campaign on Facebook.


On #GivingTuesday, Facebook and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching up to $2 million of funds raised for U.S. nonprofits through Facebook's charitable giving tools. This means that all the funds raised through personal facebook page on Giving Tuesday will be doubled! Donations can be matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit, with a max of $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button, until the $2 million in matching funds run out. 

The match will begin November 28th at 8AM EST (5AM PST). Additionally, Facebook is waiving all fees for donations to nonprofits on #GivingTuesday. Don't miss out on this incredible fundraising opportunity to double donations and support the SUDC Foundation.
