How to create a Facebook Fundraiser from your existing fundraising page

Modified on 12 August

You can now raise more and reach your fundraising goal faster by creating a Facebook Fundraiser directly from your RunSignup Fundraising Page! Any money that is raised on Facebook will count towards your overall fundraising goal. On average, connected fundraisers raise over $150 through Facebook. Facebook’s powerful social network and ease of use make it easy for your fundraisers to ask their friends for donations.

RunSignup’s Facebook Fundraiser API Integration is only available for select nonprofit runs, walks, and rides. If the run/walk/ride you are participating in has Facebook Fundraising enabled, you can follow the instructions below to create your synced Facebook Fundraiser.

For your Facebook Fundraiser to count towards your fundraising goal, you must follow the instructions to create your Facebook Fundraiser.

  1. Sign In to RunSignup.

  2. Go to your Profile.

  3. Scroll down to your Fundraising section of your profile.
