How do Facebook fundraisers work?

Fundraising and donations on Facebook are straightforward. When your friends and family donate to your fundraiser on Facebook, they’ll receive an email confirmation that serves as their Facebook donation receipt, showing that they’ve made a charitable contribution. Facebook covers all fees for Facebook nonprofit donations so that 100% of donations are paid directly to Phoenix Children’s in support of our Hope Fund. Additionally, Facebook fundraiser donations may be tax deductible—tell your friends and family to check with a local tax professional to find out. 

How can someone without a Facebook account donate to my Facebook fundraiser? 

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to make a Facebook donation without logging into a Facebook account. Please encourage your loved ones without Facebook to donate to Phoenix Children’s directly at phoenixchildrensfoundation.org
