facebook fundraising - how to start a fundraiser on facebook

Facebook fundraising has just gotten better with the social media platform now making it possible for its users to ask friends or strangers to make donations to their personal fundraisers. Initially, only non-profits could start a fundraiser on Facebook but now users over 18 in the US can explore more personal fundraisers with the addition of new (community and sports) categories.

In a move similar to popular online fundraising website GoFundMe, Facebook fundraising for personal users has been in testing since March but has now been launched officially. People will now be able to raise money for expenses concerning Education, Medical, Crisis Relief, Personal Emergencies, Funeral/Losses, Sports and Community issues.
