Are donations made on Facebook tax-deductible?
A donation to a nonprofit through its Facebook Page or a fundraiser on Facebook may be tax-deductible. Since tax laws vary by country and region, you should consult a tax professional or review the laws for your area to determine whether a donation is tax-deductible.

After you make a donation, a confirmation will be sent to the primary email listed on your Facebook account. This confirmation shows that you've made this donation as a charitable contribution and that you're not receiving any goods or services in return.  If you have further questions about the deductibility of any donations, please reach out to a tax professional.

Will my donation on Facebook be seen by my friends?
Your donation to BCAN on Facebook will only be seen by your friends if you choose to share it. Keep in mind that the amount of your donation won't be shared.

When you donate to a fundraiser, BCAN and creator of the fundraiser will be able to see your donation even if you don't share it. Can I donate privately?
Yes.  Please select “Only me” from the privacy menu in the donation form.  Please note that all fundraiser creators and BCAN can see all donations.  Only they can see donation amounts.

Will BCAN receive my information?
Only your name and the amount of your donation will be shared with the charity. You will also have the option to share your email with the charity to receive updates.

How do I get a receipt for my donation?
After you make a donation, you'll receive confirmation 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 your Facebook account by Facebook.

How do I contact Facebook about my donation?
If you need help with a recent donation you made, have questions about a fundraiser, or want more information on the status of contributions to BCAN, please fill out this form to let Facebook know.

Can I create both a team and personal Facebook fundraiser?
No.  You can only create a Facebook Fundraiser for your personal BCAN Walk page.  However, the amount donated to your personal page will contribute to your team goal.

I just updated my goal for the Facebook Fundraiser – will this update my goal on my personal walk fundraising page, too?
Yes, the Facebook fundraiser and BCAN Walk Personal Page are synched.  When you update your goal or story on one, the other will automatically update.  Please note there may be some lag time between the two while updating.
