Social Media giant Facebook has announced the launch of its non-profit fundraising tools in the UK.
Charitable organisations based in the UK are invited to sign up to be one of the first non-profits to use Facebook’s charitable giving tools to achieve their fundraising objectives by collecting donations on Facebook with the donate button; empowering supporters with Facebook Fundraisers; and to engage supporters with Facebook Live.
Facebook added that it will be working with beta partners to start including: Movember UK, Oxfam UK, UNICEF UK, Aktion Deutschland Hilft (Germany), Caritas (Spain), Save the Children Spain, UNICEF France, and UNICEF Germany.
Non-profits that have signed up directly for Facebook’s fundraising tools pay a 5% fee on each donation. 3.5% covers costs of non-profit vetting, language translation, fraud prevention, operational costs and payment support and 1.5% covers payment processing.
Facebook’s goal is to create a platform for good that’s sustainable over the long-term, and not to make a profit from our charitable giving tools.
