How you can support our work through social media fundraising

Fundraising through social media has made it easier than ever to support the causes you care about and share your fundraiser with family and friends.

You can fundraise through:

Facebook fundraising

  • Birthday fundraisers

Make your next birthday extra special! Inspire your friends with your passion for breast cancer research by sharing your special day with us.

Set up a Facebook fundraiser and tell your friends and family what matters to you on your special day. It doesn’t have to be instead of cake and presents – you can have those things too! Or if you want, you can ask your friends and family to donate to your fundraiser in lieu of gifts. It is completely in your hands.

  • Create a charity fundraiser

You don’t have to wait for your birthday to fundraise for us, you are able to set up a fundraiser on Facebook to support Breast Cancer Trials at any time. All you have to do is simply go to your Facebook page and locate the ‘FUNDRAISERS’ button in the menu on the left-hand side of your newsfeed (or if you’re on mobile, click ‘menu’ in the bottom right-hand corner).

  • Add a donate button to your Facebook post

Facebook also offers you the option of including a ‘Donation’ button on your posts. This is a quick and easy way to ask people to make a donation to Breast Cancer Trials without having to leave Facebook. Be sure to tag us so we can thank you!

Payment and Receipts

Any donations made to Breast Cancer Trials using these tools will be received via the PayPal Giving Fund and sent to us within 90 days. Receipts will also be issued by PayPal Giving Fund as they collect and distribute these donations.

Because of this two-step process, we are not provided with your contact details. Please let us know if you are fundraising for us via messenger Facebook or Instagram or so we can get in touch and say thank you.

Together with you (and the ease of social media), we can support all those affected by breast cancer.
