RunSignup Announces Free Facebook Fundraiser API Integration
July 11, 2019
Nonprofits can raise more and save time with RunSignup’s free Facebook Fundraiser API Integration. The integration allows fundraisers to auto-create a Facebook Fundraiser from RunSignup. The amounts raised on RunSignup and Facebook are automatically synced, enabling fundraisers (and nonprofits) to raise more and reach fundraising goals faster.
RunSignup provides the leading all-in-one solution for registration, donations, and fundraising. The Facebook Fundraiser API connects off-Facebook fundraisers to Facebook Fundraisers to help participants meet their fundraising goal faster by allowing them to easily reach their Facebook friends. Facebook covers the processing fees for all donations made on Facebook, making it free for nonprofits to accept donations on Facebook.
The RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration empowers nonprofits to leverage RunSignup’s integrated registration and fundraising platform with Facebook’s social network reach and no processing fees. The integration empowers nonprofits to:
- Raise More. On average, connected fundraisers raise over $150 through Facebook. Facebook’s powerful social network and ease of use make it easy for your fundraisers to ask their friends for donations.
- Save Time. Nonprofits save time because the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration automates the process of manually logging and tracking Facebook donations for your race. Fundraisers save time by seamlessly sharing their fundraiser with their entire social network. Donors save time with the option to easily give without ever leaving Facebook.
- Save Money. It’s free to use the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration. Donations made on RunSignup already have a low 4% processing fee (yes, that includes credit card fees) that nonprofits can absorb, pass to donors, or give donors the option to cover. Facebook covers all fees for donations made on Facebook, which keeps processing fees even lower with the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API integration.
Semper Fi Fund is an early adopter of the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration. Kathy Wise, Deputy Director of Community Sports at Semper Fi Fund, says, “We use RunSignup for our charity bib fundraising campaigns, such as the Marine Corps Marathon, because of the low donation processing fees and ease of use for both our team and our fundraisers. The RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API lowers our processing fees even more, empowers our fundraisers to exceed their fundraising goals, and gives us a broader reach to find new supporters.”
In order to use the RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser API Integration, nonprofits must have fundraising enabled for their race on RunSignup and be approved for Facebook Payments.
