Can I Choose Where My Facebook Fundraising Donations Will Go?
Yes! You get to choose the personal cause you care most about. Simply say in the title or description where you want funds to go and we’ll connect the dots.
Donations can go to any of the following areas:
- Where Most Needed (default): Provide for a variety of essential needs faced by children in poverty, such as: food, water, medical expenses, vaccinations, and school supplies.
- Water and Sanitation: Rescue children, families, and entire communities from the harmful consequences of water-related diseases.
- Survival: Empower local churches around the world to care for pregnant mothers and babies, setting them on the path to a bright and healthy future.
- Health and Nutrition: Safeguard children around the world from illnesses that hamper their development and even threaten their lives.
- Youth Development: Offer young people education so they have the chance to discover their gifts and passions and pursue their God-given purpose in life.
- Church Mobilization and Discipleship: Connect children and families to caring faith communities.
Facebook Fundraising Donations cannot be allocated to specific countries, communities, families or beneficiaries. If you’d like to donate specifically to the child you sponsor, we suggest you give a family gift.
What If I Have Payment Questions?
Facebook’s Help Center can answer questions on logistics, such as on donations made, payouts and their payment processor.
