“I set up the facebook fundraiser through my ACS dashboard on Jan 20th . In 16 days raised $800 all from new donors. I didn’t have to share my personal story because it copied it from ACS fundraising page. When people would donate, I would post on the fundraising page on FB a thank you, tagging them in the post. I also would let people know how far I was from my $1,000 goal and asked them to help me get there. Every time I posted on the fundraising FB page, it would post to my timeline and more people would see it. It was pretty easy!”
– Karen W., Relay For Life of Decatur, AL participant.

After linking her Facebook to her Relay For Life Dashboard, she raised over $400 in 24 hours.

“Facebook fundraising wasn’t something I’ve ever utilized as I don’t get on Facebook very often. During a training I was attending, we were all challenged to connect our Relay For Life dashboard to our Facebook pages. I was shocked when I raised $400. I received donations from people that I would not have asked for donations in another way. Facebook Fundraising will help us save more lives from cancer.”
– Rhonda C., Relay For Life of Southeast Harris County, TX participant.

“Why Facebook fundraising? I had asked myself this question last year. I created my Facebook fundraiser simply to make sure I knew what I was talking about when I was asking others to create their own, since I was the Event lead. I decided to invite about 10 people at a time and did my fundraising in short time frames about 48 hours. One of the most successful fundraisers that I did was over Mother’s Day Weekend. I asked for any donation in honor, celebration or memory of your mother. I also did one for Father’s day. With this push, I invited more people for each individual fundraiser. With my Facebook fundraising efforts, I managed to raise about $1200 in last year’s fundraising season, with $600 of it from people I would have never asked for a donation. My Facebook friends made a believer out of me. This year, I plan to be a little more creative of my fundraisers….maybe in honor of your dog or cat???”
– Lara G., Relay For Life of Macon County, IL participant.
