Frequently Asked Questions about Fundraising for FORCE via Facebook or Instagram


I am conducting this fundraiser on Facebook, but I would like the total of any dollars raised from my Facebook Fundraiser added to my other FORCE fundraising efforts for FORCE. How does that happen?
We are more than happy to add the total raised from a Facebook Fundraiser to your fundraising totals for any personal fundraising page that you may have (such as runDisney, For our Future, or a named fund you have previously set up with FORCE for example) however you must make us aware of that request as there is no connection from Facebook to our database., It would be a manual effort and we are happy to do so, but we will not know of the connection unless you let us know. Please email [email protected] to have this accomplished.

How does FORCE receive the donations from Facebook?
FORCE receives a bi-monthly disbursement in a “lump sum” of all monies donated to FORCE through a Facebook fundraiser or the “Donate” button on our main Facebook page. Facebook partners with Pal Giving Fund to give back to FORCE.

Are there fees associated with donations made on Facebook?
Facebook no longer covers fees associated with donations. Donors will have the option to increase their donation to cover the fees or they will be taken from the donaiton.

How does FORCE know who donates via Facebook, and is it recorded?
FORCE can access a report that lists the donor’s name, the gift amount, and the donor’s email (if provided) for all donations received. That information will be entered into our database for future reference.

How long does it take for a donation made via Facebook to be entered into the FORCE database?
Due to the delay in Facebook reporting and the manual process involved in entering the data, it could take up to six weeks for gifts made to FORCE via Facebook to be entered into our database.

Will those who donate to Facebook receive an acknowledgement (a receipt) for their gift?
Acknowledgments for all gifts made via Facebook will be acknowledged/receipted from/by Facebook.

Will my efforts of fundraising be acknowledged by FORCE?
FORCE has set up a manual system to record and acknowledge all fundraising efforts. We appreciate the time and work involved in this and although we must ask your understanding in the timing involved, we will make every effort to thank each one of our Facebook fundraisers as what they do is greatly and sincerely appreciated.

FORCE deeply appreciates all efforts of fundraising completed on our behalf. We could not provide the programs and services we offer without your kind support.
