Click-To-Donate: Facebook Marketing Technique For Non-Profits

One of your primary objectives as a charity marketer is to raise donations for your mission or organization. Facebook can make raising donations easier than ever with its new on-site conversion feature. The conversion feature, available through on-Facebook donation advertisements, will create a smooth contribution experience for your supporters by moving the transaction onto the Facebook platform. It will also provide for a more holistic ad optimization to reach supporters more interested in financially supporting your organization.

What is click-to-donate?

Every time a user clicks the donate button for a nonprofit, a partnered advertiser’s banner gets displayed on Facebook. The more clicks user make, the more an advertisement gets displayed. The more an advertisement gets displayed on Facebook, the more that advertiser will contribute to the original nonprofit that received the click.
