Create a Facebook Fundraiser
Set up a fundraiser for your birthday instead of receiving gifts, take on a challenge or remember a loved one.
It’s really quick to set up a Facebook Fundraiser. You can easily share your target and progress with family and friends.
Facebook charges no fees on donations made so every penny your friends and family donate through a Facebook fundraiser comes directly to Pancreatic Cancer UK.
If you have a connection to pancreatic cancer or a personal reason for supporting Pancreatic Cancer UK, make sure to share your story with friends and family by updating the description on your page. By sharing your story, supporters will be more likely to donate generously to your fundraiser.
2. Ask generous friends and family to donate first
Once your page is set up, ask a generous friend or family member to make the first donation. We find that people tend to match existing donations on the page.
3. Tell people why they should care
Too little has changed in pancreatic cancer, together lets raise awareness. Share these in your fundraising description and post on your fundraiser.
4. Thank your friends and family publicly
Say thank you to your family and friends on your timeline, and tag them into the post. Then your Facebook connections will see it too, and could be inspired to donate.
5. Share posts, photos and videos on your fundraiser
Keep your family and friends up to date, record short clips and let them know how important your fundraiser is to you and why.
