In August 2015, Facebook introduced a new kind of 'call-to-action' button for charities. You can now add a Donate Now button to your charity's Facebook page and any ads that you purchase.
To use a Donate Now button, your organisation's page category must be set to 'Non-Profit Organization'.
To set up a Donate Now button on your Facebook, follow these steps:
- Visit your Facebook page's Cover Photo and click Create Call to Action. If you already have set up a different Call to Action, click on it to edit it.
- Choose the Donate Button from the dropdown list, and enter in the link to your donation facility.
- If you would like to use your everydayhero donation facility, you can! This could be the link to an appeal you have set up, your branded Donor Pay form or your charity profile.
