Facebook Fundraisers are a very effective fundraising tool for OMF supporters. They make it easy for your friends, family and other connections to donate in support of groundbreaking ME / CFS research. The simple steps below will help you make sure your fundraiser gets the most possible donations.
Send a direct invitation to your friends and family to make a contribution to your fundraiser. Simply visit your fundraiser page and look for the invite feature.
Use the “share” button to post reminders about your fundraiser. For example, you can share when there’s, “One week left to donate,” “Two days left to donate,” “Last day to donate!” and so on.
Upload a personal photo for your fundraiser cover image and be sure the written description explains why OMF’s work is important to you. Your connections are more likely to donate if they know why this cause matters to you as an individual.
It’s best to start with a fundraising goal that you think you have a realistic chance of reaching.
Regardless of where you begin, be sure to monitor your fundraising progress. Once you reach your initial goal, use the “Edit Fundraiser” button to set a higher target to provide more motivation to donate.
