Facebook Fundraiser

Facebook has created fundraising tools that enable you to raise funds for Kidney Health Australia through Facebook.  These donations will be received via a third party intermediary, the PayPal Giving Fund who collect no commission from donated funds.  Receipts for donations will be issued by PayPal Giving Fund, because they are collecting and distributing these donations.

Unfortunately, as PayPay Giving Fund receive the payment, we are not provided with your contact details, so we have no way of thanking you for your generous donation. So we can thank you, we'd love you to get in touch with us on Facebook or at events@kidney.org.au.

There are two ways you can easily raise money for Kidney Health Australia on Facebook:

1. Create a Facebook Fundraising page

2. Add a donation button to your posts

Create a Facebook Fundraising page

Creating a Fundraising page can be a great way to celebrate your birthday, kidney-versary, or anything you like! This page is similar to a Facebook event with the addition of a goal donation amount and the ability for your friends and family to donate via PayPal or credit card on your behalf. 

You can then share your Fundraising page to your friends and family on Facebook and encourage them to donate.
