Facebook Fundraisers

Thank you so much for deciding to set up a Facebook Fundraiser to help raise much-needed funds for Down Syndrome Ireland. By doing so you will be help make a real difference to the lives of children and adults with Down syndrome and their families all around Ireland.

Whether you are setting up a Facebook Fundraiser for your birthday, a celebration, or doing a challenge event, it could not be easier. Facebook has an easy to use Fundraising page setup which will guide you through the process in just a few simple clicks – in no time at all you will be ready to start sharing your fundraiser with all your Facebook friends and beyond.

The good news is that there are currently no fees applied to Facebook Fundraisers. This means that 100% of every donation will be lodged directly into Down Syndrome Ireland’s bank account on a monthly basis, thereby helping to fund our vital support services for people with Down syndrome throughout Ireland.

Once your Facebook Fundraiser is up and running don’t forget to thank each person for their donation and post regular updates on your progress towards your fundraising goal – if you have any photos to share, all the better!

Wishing you the very best of luck with your Facebook Fundraiser and if you have any questions please contact Lauren McCarthy from our Fundraising Team at laurenmccarthy@downsyndrome.ie or 086 197 5424.

Thank you for your support and for helping to make a real difference to the lives of children and adults with Down syndrome.
