How to receive Charity Donations via Facebook

You’ve probably seen charity donation requests on Facebook. Maybe someone is having a birthday and they’d like people to donate to their favorite charity. Maybe they are doing a Facebook Live presentation and the request is for people to donate to a charity.

How does a group get their name onto that list of charities, so they can be chosen?

First off, you do have to be an official non-profit organization. Every state and country has its own rules about how to acquire that non-profit ID. Check with your state or country to figure out the steps, and go through them.

In the US, you are required to have a 501(c)(3) organization with a Tax ID number. You also need an official bank account associated with that non-profit, that will receive the funds.

You need a Facebook page for your charity, so people know where to connect to.

Once those things are set, then you follow these instructions to enable your Facebook page for your charity’s donations.
