Online fundraising couldn’t be easier with Facebook.
In minutes you can create a Facebook Fundraiser in support of Bowel Cancer Australia for your upcoming birthday or celebration or launch an online fundraiser for any activity you like.
Create a fitness challenge for yourself, like running 25kms on the treadmill or completing 30 burpees every day for a month and seek sponsorship from family and friends.
Use your passion or hobby to build a creative fundraiser and ask members of your club or group to make a donation.
Request donations in lieu of gifts for your birthday, anniversary or engagement, or create a memorial fundraiser to honour the memory of a loved one.
Once you’ve created your Facebook Fundraiser you can seamlessly connect friends to your cause and gain supporters across Facebook, through invitations and sharing on your Facebook wall.
People can donate to your fundraiser via their smartphone in just a few clicks without even leaving Facebook, with all donations sent directly to Bowel Cancer Australia through the PayPal Giving Fund.
