Give to the ALS Movement Through a Fundraising Campaign on Facebook
Launch a fundraising campaign to your Facebook network
Want to raise funds to fuel the I AM ALS revolution through our programs and operations? Perfect! Facebook has made it simple.
First, click here. I AM ALS should already be chosen as the nonprofit you support. You’re on your way!
Second, fill out the details. In the form Facebook provides, put in your fundraising goal, and the date you want the fundraiser to end. Then click “Next.”
The next form is “Share your story.” In this section, create a title for your fundraiser and explain that donations to I AM ALS allow us to grow as an organization, expand our advocacy efforts, and serve the community through our Community Support programs and initiatives. Use your story in this section to educate people about ALS and how it has impacted you. Remind people they can be part of the change — that there are currently no cures for ALS.
- Here is a template: My family has the unwilling task of accepting an ALS diagnosis. It is daunting, and navigating the journey is overwhelming. For this reason, I’m proud to be fundraising for I AM ALS. I AM ALS is a patient-led community that provides critical support and resources to patients, caregivers, and loved ones. They empower advocates to raise mainstream awareness and lead the revolution against ALS in driving the development of cures.
Finally, pick a cover photo. Facebook auto-populates this with I AM ALS’ logo. Feel free to keep this or use a photograph of yourself or your loved one who you’re raising money in honor or memory of.
Once you have selected your photograph, click “Create.”
