How to Use Facebook to Fundraise

 

Post on your personal page

Share with your friends and family what you’re doing by posting about it on your Facebook page. Letting everyone know what you’re doing is a great and easy way to spread the word. You can post about why you’re Goin’ Bald for Bucks and add before pictures so everyone sees your head of hair before the shaving. You can even link your fundraising page from your Dashboard page at www.baldforbucks.org!

Create an event on Facebook

Creating an event on Facebook is easy to do and you can invite friends and family to attend. This is a great way to keep everyone who is coming up to date with where, when and other details as the event gets closer. Add a before picture as the event’s photo and don’t forget to include your fundraising page to the event details so even those who can’t attend are able donate!

Share, share, share!

Sharing is such a great way to reach people on Facebook. Imagine if just 5 of your friends shared your post about Goin’ Bald for Bucks. You’d not only reach all of your friends, but also all of the 5 people’s friends who posted about it as well! Ask your friends and family to simple hit the share button on the bottom of your post so more people can see the amazing thing that you’re doing to find cancer cures! And remember, ‘sharing is caring’ so don’t forget to share posts from others that are Goin’ Bald for Bucks and share the fun photos and videos that the Bald for Bucks page posts too!

Be visual

In a recent study, researchers found that Facebook posts with images received up to 2.3 times more engagement than those without. Doing something as bold as shaving your head to honor cancer patients is no small feat. Make sure you show everyone your before and after shots so they can see your wonderful transformation! Your fundraising page will still be available for donations after your event and sometimes showing off your new-do can inspire even more donations to come in!

Say thank you!

Use your Facebook page as an easy and effective way to say thank you to everyone who donated and supported your cause. You can tag friends & businesses to show your appreciation!
