Why Facebook fundraisers work


With nearly 3 billion active monthly users, Facebook (also known as Meta Platforms Inc. or "Meta") is a great place to raise money and make an impact for causes like St. Jude.

Creating a Facebook fundraiser is an easy way to raise money for nonprofits because the setup is simple and cost-effective. In addition to its accessibility, this platform's larger user base means your campaign has the potential to reach a wider audience. Users can easily share their fundraiser with their network of followers, who can then donate and share with their network and so on.

There is also an added layer of trust and visibility with Facebook fundraising as donors can see the person who is organizing the campaign and view updates in real time.
