How do I create a birthday fundraiser on Facebook 2022?

Facebook users can use their birthdays as an opportunity to fundraise for their favorite organizations.

If you create a birthday fundraiser for a nonprofit, the nonprofit will receive donations directly from Facebook, or Network for Good, or from PayPal Giving Fund.

Facebook charges no fees for donations made to nonprofits. For donations made to personal fundraisers, fees vary depending on where the money is being raised.
