Birthday Fundraising through Facebook

Facebook as a social networking platform has the power to connect and bolster our Bark community. Together, we’ve raised thousands of dollars and shared our mission with people outside of our direct Portland area. We’re grateful to those who started birthday fundraisers on behalf of Bark—and to their friends, family, and community who donated

Together, we’ve raised thousands of dollars and shared our mission with people outside of our direct Portland area. We’re grateful to those who started birthday fundraisers on behalf of Bark—and to their friends, family, and community who donated.  It's super simple, yet deeply impactful.  

Interested in hosting a Facebook Birthday Fundraiser for Bark?  

Here’s how in six easy steps: 

  1. Go to your Facebook account (or create one here! 

  1. Go to your 'home' page, and look on the left side column. You should see the 'fundraiser' option under "Create" at the bottom. Click on "fundraiser" and Facebook will walk you through. 

  1. Pick your charity: Bark!  

  1. Set your fundraising goal and time-frame. We've seen many successful fundraisers at $200 or even $500 or more! Set something that you feel good about and see where it goes! You can always raise the amount if you really want to challenge your friends. 

  1. Invite people on your friends list and engage with them! This is key.  Share often on your timeline. While some people may be hesitant to invite people on their friends list, remember you're giving them an opportunity to participate and support a mission that matters to you!  

  1. Thank people as they donate and watch numbers go up!  Your community is donating to Bark because of YOUbecause they love and appreciate you (and we do too!)
