Facebook is making it easier to donate to charity with a few updates to its fundraising tool.
To begin with, yes Facebook had a fundraising platform that was introduced to help people donate to myriad causes including disaster relief, and personal causes like health and the like.
The firm is making a few changes, summarised below as per Facebook’s newsroom post.
- People can pledge to match donations to their nonprofit fundraiser. This is a first of its kind tool in online fundraising that’s now available in the US and will soon expand internationally.
- We’re also announcing new categories for fundraisers for personal causes so people can raise funds for more social good causes across family, faith, travel, and volunteering.
- In the coming weeks, we’re eliminating the platform fee on all fundraisers for personal causes, helping maximize their support.
