Did you know that you can support our work without even leaving Facebook? It’s now easier than ever to use your posts to collect tax-deductible donations through the Basic Rights Education Fund.
On Giving Tuesday (November 28), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will be matching all donations made through Facebook up to $2 million. The catch? The match starts at 5 a.m. PST — so we’re looking for a few early risers to help us get the word out bright and early.
Here’s how you can participate:
Step 1: Create your Facebook Post. Write a short message about why you’re choosing to support Basic Rights Oregon and what our work means to you.
Step 2: Select “Support Nonprofit” from the menu below your post. You may have to scroll down to see this option.
Step 3: Start typing “Basic Rights Education Fund” into the text box. It should appear in the dropdown. Click on the name in the menu below to select it.
Step 4: Post your status like you normally would! Now it will appear on your timeline with a button that allows your friends to donate.
Step 5: Use the donate button to make your contribution to the Basic Rights Education Fund.
