This is an exciting new feature that allows you to streamline your fundraising efforts and receive donations directly through Facebook. In just a few steps, you can create a connected Facebook fundraising page where friends can read your story, watch your progress and donate — all without ever leaving Facebook.
Donations from Facebook will show up in real-time and your fundraising total is reflected on both the Facebook Fundraiser and your Personal Fundraising Page.
Please note that you MUST create your Facebook Fundraiser through your Courage Classic Participant Center if you would like it to be linked to your Personal Fundraising Page. A Fundraiser created on Facebook first cannot be linked.
Setting up your Facebook Fundraiser
- Log into your Participant Center. On the Home screen, scroll down to the Facebook Fundraising section under Quick Links. Click “Fundraise on Facebook.”
The information on your Personal Fundraising Page will be used to create your Facebook Fundraiser. TIP: You should not create your Facebook Fundraiser until you have updated your Personal Fundraising Page. Any updates made to your Personal Fundraising Page after you’ve created a Facebook Fundraiser will not be applied.
- You will be prompted to log in to your Facebook account.
- You will see a screen that says “Children's Colorado Foundation would like to manage your Fundraisers.” Click “OK”. This links your Facebook Fundraiser with Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation to allow all donations made through Facebook to be automatically applied to your Personal Fundraising Page on the Courage Classic website.
Congratulations! When you return to the Participant Center home page the Facebook Fundraising box will read, “Your Fundraiser is Connected to Facebook”. Click “Go to Facebook Fundraiser.”
You can now manage your fundraiser by adding a cover photo, inviting your Facebook friends to donate, share updates, make a self-donation, track your progress or write a post to your donors.
