#GivingTuesday is just around the corner! If you are interested in making the biggest impact for animals, please consider setting up a Facebook fundraiser on behalf of ACE and/or our Funds for this social media-driven fundraising event. In addition to offering year-round, fee-free donations to eligible nonprofit organizations such as ACE, Facebook is also matching donations up to $7 million on Giving Tuesday! To increase the chance that your and your friends’ donations are matched, check out and share these instructions which explain how to get your donation in immediately after the match launches at 5:00am Pacific Time. Setting up a fundraiser takes less than 5 minutes, and we’ve made it even easier for you with this step-by-step guide.
Follow these simple steps to set up a fundraising campaign on Facebook:
1. Click here to visit ACE’s Facebook fundraiser page
You should automatically be directed to create a new fundraiser.
2. Enter the amount of money you’d like to raise
Pick any amount you like! If you meet your goal before the fundraiser ends, you can always update the goal amount.
3. Set an end date for your fundraiser
To take advantage of the Facebook matching funds, we recommend a 24-hour Giving Tuesday fundraiser. Regardless of the length, we encourage you to end your fundraiser by the end of the year.
4. Customize fundraiser text
Since we offer multiple giving opportunities through ACE, we have provided language below that you may use to indicate the option that you prefer. Feel free to copy and paste this into your fundraiser’s story, and remember to personalize it so that your friends and family know it is coming from you!
5. Choose an image for your fundraiser
Use the suggested photo or choose one of these cute animal images we’ve created especially for your #GivingTuesday fundraisers! Click here to view and download the image files.
6. Spread the word!
Finally, remember to share your fundraiser on your Facebook page and throughout your social media accounts so that your family, friends, and followers can show their support for a cause that means so much to you! If you don’t know what to write, you can say something like this:
I’m supporting effective animal charities this #GivingTuesday because reducing animal suffering matters a great deal to me. Please consider making a donation to my fundraiser so that we can help as many animals as possible, as effectively as possible.
We are excited to see you show off your fundraising skills and we are incredibly grateful for your support. Thank you so much for increasing your impact by fundraising for effective animal charities!
