How you can support our work through Facebook Fundraising

There are a range of different ways you can support Breast Cancer Trials whilst using your socials. Even better, Facebook doesn’t charge any fees for donations to not-for-profit organisations through the platform.

Different ways include:

  1. Birthday Fundraisers (one of the most popular ways).
  2. Charity Fundraisers (which you can do at any time).
  3. Add a donation button on your post.

Facebook Birthday Fundraising

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.

Leading up to your birthday, Facebook will prompt you to ask your friends to donate funds to your nominated charity. All you need to do is select Breast Cancer Trials as your nominated charity and follow the below steps.

  1. You can then nominate how much money you would like to raise.
  2. Choose an end date for your fundraiser.
  3. Your fundraiser will auto-populate with some information about the importance of Breast Cancer Trials’ work. You can personalise this.
  4. You can change the image or you can leave the pre-populated image.
  5. Create and share with your family and friends.

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 Facebook messenger or fundraising@bctrials.org.au 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.
