Nonprofits can raise more and save time with RunSignup’s free Facebook Fundraiser API Integration. The integration allows your fundraisers to auto-create a Facebook Fundraiser from RunSignup. The amounts raised on RunSignup and Facebook are automatically synced, enabling your participants (and your nonprofit) to raise more and reach fundraising goals faster.
RunSignup provides the leading all-in-one solution for registration, donations, and fundraising. The Facebook Fundraiser API connects off-Facebook fundraisers to Facebook Fundraisers to help participants meet their fundraising goal faster by allowing them to easily reach their Facebook friends. Facebook covers the processing fees for all donations made on Facebook, making it free for nonprofits to accept donations on Facebook.
The RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration lets your nonprofit leverage RunSignup’s integrated registration and fundraising platform with Facebook’s social network reach and free processing fees.
Raise More. 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.
Save Time. The RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration automates the process of manually logging and tracking Facebook donations for your race.
Save Money. It’s free to use the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration. Donations made on RunSignup have a low 4% processing fee (yes, that includes credit card fees) that you can absorb, pass to your donors, or give your donors the option to cover. Facebook’s free processing fees lower your nonprofit’s donation processing fees even more when you enable the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration.
Semper Fi Fund is an early adopter of the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration. Kathy Wise, Deputy Director of Community Sports at Semper Fi Fund, says, “We use RunSignup for our charity bib fundraising campaigns, such as the Marine Corps Marathon, because of the low donation processing fees and ease of use for both our team and our fundraisers. The RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API lowers our processing fees even more, empowers our fundraisers to exceed their fundraising goals, and gives us a broader reach to find new supporters.”
In order to use the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration, your nonprofit must have fundraising enabled for your race and be approved for Facebook Payments. You can find more information on how to set up, manage, and use the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration here:
