Facebook Fundraising

You may have heard the recent news that Facebook has now enabled fundraising tools across Canada. Facebook Fundraisers are a valuable tool to help you utilize the platform to fundraise from friends and family for your Ride.

It is important to know that Facebook Fundraisers do not automatically integrate with your Ride fundraising account. Before you get started, we wanted to provide you with guidelines to be sure you set-up your Facebook Fundraiser in a way that is able to be tracked and credited to your Ride Fundraising efforts.

How To Set Up Your Fundraiser

  1. Select Fundraisers on your Facebook navigation menu. This will be found on the left side of your browser for desktop devices and in the drop-down menu on Facebook mobile applications.
  2. From the Fundraisers screen, select the Raise Money button, you will be prompted to set-up your fundraiser. Please follow the next steps to ensure your fundraiser will be recognized by The Ride and properly credited to your Ride fundraising account.
  3. From the Who are you raising money for? menu, select Charity and search for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
  4. Upon selecting The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, you will be prompted to enter a dollar amount and end date for your fundraiser.

  5. On the next menu screen, update the title of your fundraiser to include your first and last name, Ride participant ID number and Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer®. This is the only way The Ride will be able to identify your fundraiser and your Ride information with your Facebook Fundraiser.
    facebook fundraising step five
  6. Once you have completed this entry, continue on and create your fundraiser on the next menu screen.

Important points to keep in mind:

  • Funds raised through Facebook Fundraising will take up to 60 days to be credited to your Ride fundraising account.
  • Funds raised through Facebook Fundraisers cannot be used for time-sensitive fundraising challenges.
  • To guarantee that funds raised will be allocated towards your event fundraising account be sure to follow each step above and include all relevant information as outlined.

As always, should you have questions, please contact your Ride Guide at ontarioguides@conquercancer.ca or by phone [877] 699-BIKE [2453]. We are here to help.
