Adding Donate Now Button to Facebook Page Print Article

HOW TO...

This article explains how to add a Donate Now button that directs your organization's supporters to your BidPal Text2Give donation campaign from a Facebook page.

In order to add a Donate Now button that points page visitors to your Text2Give campaign, you will need to have a Non-Profit Organization Facebook page. If your organization does not have an existing page of this type, you can create one by following these steps:

When logged into the Facebook account your organization uses (it can be a personal one), expand the Settings Tab and select "Create Page"

Next, select Company, Organization, or Institution, which will allow you to choose Non-Profit Organization from the "Choose a Category" drop-down

Complete the desired steps in the Setup process to customize the page as needed
