If your birthday is coming up, consider creating a Facebook Fundraiser for the Colon Cancer Foundation for your birthday. It’s a quick and simple way to show your support for survivors and patients of one of cancer’s deadliest diseases. Learn more with these quick steps:
Step 1: Visit Facebook Fundraisers
Visit Facebook Fundraisers to start the process of setting up a fundraiser.
Step 2: Find the Colon Cancer Foundation
Type in Colon Cancer Foundation when prompted to find a nonprofit. Since we are a US 501(c)(3), your donations will be tax-deductible. However, we encourage reaching out to a tax professional if you have more questions.
Step 3: Decide how much you would like to raise for your fundraiser.
No matter what amount you decide, all money will go directly to the Colon Cancer Foundation. Facebook does not charge fees for donations made to nonprofits. Any money that is donated will help support our mission to support colorectal cancer survivors and patients while also supporting innovative research to fight this deadly disease.
Step 4: Encourage your friends to donate!
Friends may choose to donate publically or privately. However, they may need encouragement from you. Make sure to share status updates and tell your friends why the fundraiser is important to you.
The CCF is fortunate to have raised over $100,000 this year in Facebook Fundraisers! Small actions together can make great change, so start a fundraiser today to help support the CCF. Every penny helps when it comes to eradicating colorectal cancer and we can’t do it without you.
