If you'd like to ask for donations in lieu of gifts on your birthday, anniversary, or another occasion, you can do so with Facebook's fundraiser tool.
Setting up a fundraising page or adding a donate button to your Facebook post is straightforward. All donations go directly to our charity and help us to support more people affected by dementia.
How to create a Facebook fundraiser
To create a Facebook fundraising page, follow these simple steps:
- Select ‘fundraisers’ in your Facebook news feed menu.
- Press the ‘raise money’ button.
- Select ‘charity’.
- Search ‘Alzheimer’s Society’. Once selected, you can customise your fundraiser details and cover photo if you want to.
- Click create.
How to add a donate button to your Facebook post
Facebook also offers the option of adding a ‘donate’ button to posts you make on your news feed.
If you’d like to add a ‘donate’ option when creating a Facebook post, scroll down and select ‘support non-profit’ and you can find and select Alzheimer’s Society from the list. On some devices or desktop computers, you may need to click for more options to see 'support non-profit'.
