Facebook Fundraising Pro-Tips

Wondering how to make the most out of your new Facebook fundraiser? Here are a few tips we suggest trying out to raise funds to help pets in need.

  • Share your fundraiser! Invite your friends, family members, and co-workers to donate to your fundraiser by posting about it on your personal Facebook. You can also invite your friends to the fundraiser page, just like you could for a Facebook event. You’ll find this option on the right-hand side of your Facebook fundraiser, under a tab called “Invite Friends.”
  • Post in your fundraiser frequently! Sharing stories directly from the McKamey Animal Center Facebook page or posting photos of your own pets are both great ways to encourage your friends to donate. Posting more frequently will grow your audience and help even more pets in need.
  • Thank people who make donations to your fundraiser! This is a great way to engage your friends that are generous enough to make a gift to help pets in need, and encourage others to do so.
  • Share your fundraiser in your Facebook story! It’s easy – just go to your Facebook profile and click on the “Add Story” button below your profile photo. Select a photo or background, and then click the “Stickers” tab (it’s in the upper right hand corner and looks like a little peeling sticker with a smiley face.) Select the “Donate” button, and search for the name of your Facebook fundraiser benefitting McKamey Animal Center. This will allow your Facebook friends to access your fundraiser directly through your story!
  • Reach your fundraising goal early? That’s great! You can always start small and increase your fundraiser’s goal when you get close or exceed it. This is a great way to challenge your followers to go the extra mile for pets in need. We suggest starting your fundraiser at $300!

It has never been easier to use social media to raise lifesaving funds to support the care for homeless pets. Plus, we’ll be there along the way to provide suggestions and encouragement to help your fundraiser each its goal. Together, we can help twice as many homeless pets this holiday season.
