Fundraise for CPRE Wiltshire through Facebook

Facebook now gives you the option to fundraise for your chosen charity on your birthday. It’s straightforward to do.

Just follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Facebook account
  2. Go to your ‘home’ page, and look on the left side column. You should see the ‘fundraiser’ option under “Create” at the bottom. Click on “fundraiser” and Facebook will give you instructions.
  3. Pick CPRE Wiltshire.
  4. Set your fundraising goal – this could be £20, £50, £100 or whatever you choose – and your timeframe
  5. Invite people on your friends list and engage with them! This part is key. Invite, invite, invite! Share often on your timeline: remember that not everyone will see something if you post just once. While some people may be hesitant to ask people on their friends list, remember you’re giving them an opportunity to participate in something personal and global. And it’s no problem if they are unable or unwilling to participate at this time – you’ve at least extended an invitation.
  6. Let us know. This one is optional, as Facebook will let us know when you set up the fundraiser, but if you want some help in maximising your fundraising do drop us a line on . We’d be so happy to help – and we always love to hear from you!
  7. Thank people as they donate and watch numbers go up! These people are donating to CPRE, the countryside charity because of YOU – because they love you, appreciate you and think you’re the bee’s knees (and so do we!).
  8. At the end of your chosen timeframe, no need to do anything additional to get the donations across to us – Facebook has set it up so that your fundraised total will automatically be donated.
