Facebook Fundraiser FAQs

Why should I start a Walk Facebook Fundraiser through my Participant Center?

Creating a Facebook Fundraiser through your Participant Center is one of the fastest and easiest ways to raise money for Autism Speaks. It is a great way to reach all of your “friends” who may be
individuals you won’t email through your Participant Center. More money…more mission!

How long will my Walk Facebook Fundraiser be active?

All Facebook Fundraisers will be active for 60 days from the day of the event.

Are donations made on Facebook tax-deductible?

All donations are tax deductible! After your donation, you will be emailed a copy of your receipt that you can use for tax purposes. This confirmation will be sent to the primary email listed on the donor's Facebook account.

Is my Facebook Fundraiser donation private?

Your donation to Autism Speaks on Facebook will only be seen by your friends if you choose to share it. Please keep in mind that the amount of your donation won't be shared.

When you donate to a fundraiser, Autism Speaks and the creator of the fundraiser will be able to see your donation even if you don't share it.

Do my Facebook Fundraiser donors receive a receipt?

Yes. After they make the donation, they will receive a confirmation via email that you've made this donation as a charitable contribution and that you're not receiving any goods or services in return. This confirmation will be sent to the primary email listed on their Facebook account.
