Every $1 donated to the Food Bank helps provide 3 meals to a hungry child, senior or family in North Texas. Last fiscal year alone, Facebook Fundraisers help us raise enough money to provide more than 985,850 meals for our hungry neighbors! Our community needs us now more than ever - you can help make an impact through your Facebook Fundraiser today.
Tips to Make your Facebook Fundraiser a Success
- Post your fundraiser on your personal page often to remind people of the importance of donating.
- Reach out to friends directly to encourage them to donate to your Facebook Fundraiser.
- Don't be afraid to set your goal high - the more money you raise, the more hungry neighbors we can feed!
- Post on your fundraiser every day or every few days, to remind people of the importance of donating.
- Motivate people to donate by personally matching funds up to a certain level.
- Make it fun – do a Facebook live to talk about why you chose NTFB for your fundraiser or make a personal thank you video for everyone that donates. The more creative, the better!
