Facebook is a great place to encourage your friends, family and colleagues to support you! Always share your MS Wellness Run Fundraising page to Facebook as opposed to setting up a Facebook fundraiser. This way you can be sure that all your funds raised will be shown on your MS Wellness Run Fundraising page.
Furthermore, we recommend you do not use the Facebook Donate button, as we cannot link any of the funds received through a Facebook fundraiser to your MS Wellness Run Fundraising page.
Multiple Sclerosis Limited, ABN 66 004 942 287
Yes, if you have selected ‘Multiple Sclerosis Limited’ as your charity of choice, we’ll receive the funds. However, please note there will be a slight delay. Also, your donors will receive a receipt a from PayPal Giving Fund, not Multiple Sclerosis Limited.
Facebook donations are managed by a third party (PayPal Giving Fund), so we cannot sync these donations with your MS Wellness Run fundraising page.
Therefore, the best way to receive donations from your friends, colleagues and family is by sharing your fundraising page to Facebook, as opposed to using the Facebook Donate button.
