Fundraise on Facebook
Share our Mission
Introduce your friends and colleagues to the mission of AICR by launching an easy-to-manage facebook fundraiser.
Facebook isn’t just for cat memes and pictures—it’s also a great way to support charities. In just a few minutes, you can put together a super-simple, impactful fundraiser that supports AICR research, and connects us to new communities. Facebook does all the detailed work—all you have to do is create a personalized page, set some goals, and start fundraising!
You can start by clicking here, or by following these steps:
- Click “fundraise” on the left menu of your news feed.
- Click “raise money for a non profit.”
- Search for and select American Institute for Cancer Research (you may have to search for “AICR”).
- Fill out the info, personalize the details, and click “create.”
From there you can promote, share and message your effort to your built-in Facebook network. If you’d like, you can even choose to automatically match the donations you receive (or a portion of them). Overseeing your progress is simple, and Facebook itself manages all the complex work (like processing the financials).
Once the fundraiser is over, you don’t have to handle any accounting or deposits. Facebook will mail you any tax info you might need, and will send your fundraiser’s proceeds directly to our office.
