How can I find my Facebook fundraiser?

  • There are a few ways you can find your fundraiser:
    • Go to to see your fundraisers
    • In Facebook, go to “Explore” (on the left-hand size of the screen if you're on a computer), and choose “Fundraisers.” Then, choose “Manage,” or look under your fundraiser shortcuts to see fundraisers you've created or donated to on Facebook.
  • If your fundraiser has raised at least $50 USD or the equivalent, it will also show up on the St. Jude Facebook Page. See Facebook's "When does a supporter's fundraiser appear on a charity's Page?"

Can I connect my personal St. Jude fundraising page to Facebook?

  • Yes! If you're already signed up for a St. Jude event, you can fundraise with Facebook by signing into your St. Jude fundraising center then connecting that campaign to Facebook.
