How to Set Up a Facebook Fundraiser

We know that it’s not always possible for everyone to give – even if you want to. But you are still able to make an impact (or grow your own!) by creating your own fundraiser on Facebook. Creating a fundraiser is easy and is a great way to invite your friends and family to contribute to Sole Hope.


Find Sole Hope on Facebook and select the Fundraiser tab.

 Select Raise Money.

A fundraiser will immediately be created! Now you can customize it!

Easily edit any text by clicking on the text provided.

Edit the main image by selecting the Edit in the corner.

You can select one of Sole Hope’s other images or upload your own image.

If you opt to Select one of our images, simply scroll to find your favorite.

You will reposition the photo to fit the image size and click Done!

Scroll to the bottom and adjust your goal amount, campaign length and its visibility on your profile. Then take a final look, and click Create!

You’re done! You rock!


Make it personal. Let others know why Sole Hope is important to you and why you’d like them to donate.

Spread the word!

To reach as many of your friends as possible, be persistent! Make sure to post your fundraiser at least a few times before your end date approaches. Here are two ways to follow up:

  • Open your fundraiser page and click the “Share” button. From there, choose to either post it on your timeline again (and tag your friends) or send it in a private message.
  • For those friends who may not visit Facebook often, copy and paste the URL into an e-mail.
