Set up a Birthday Facebook Fundraiser

Celebrate your Birthday by supporting Break

Thanks for sharing your birthday with us. Its easy to set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook.

By asking friends and family to donate to Break via your Facebook fundraiser, you will be helping us to fund our vital services supporting children and young people in and around care.

Facebook doesn’t take any fee from Facebook fundraising pages, so all of the funds go directly to Break. Follow the steps below to start your birthday fundraising.

Set up your Fundraiser

  1. Visit the Facebook page.
  2. Select 'Raise money'
  3. Choose how much you’d like to raise. We suggest £50-£100
  4. Decide when you’d like your birthday fundraiser to end (it will start as soon as you finish this process).
  5. If you click next, you’ll be asked to give your fundraiser a title such as 'My birthday wish!'
  6. You’ll be asked to explain why you’re fundraising. Facebook will suggest something for you which you can adapt, keep or replace.
  7. You’ll then be asked to choose the photo you would like to use – this will show you the gallery of pictures we at Break have used before – so pick one you like, upload your own or just simply click ‘Create’.
  8. That’s it! All you have to do is share it with your friends and connections. Remember to share it more than once as Facebook doesn't show all of your friends every time.

When your fundraiser ends, you don’t have to do anything at all – Break will receive the funds you have raised without you needing to do anything.

There are plenty of ways that you can support and fundraise for us!

We’d love for you to fundraise for us. It makes an enormous difference to the lives of young people in our region.

We want to make it fun and easy for you, so we are here to help and support you whether you are running your own event, taking on a challenge event or planning a team building event with your colleagues at work.

How fundraising can help us

Every penny you raise will go directly to helping vulnerable children, young people and families. Giving them the time, support, and care they need to achieve their full potential.

Whatever a child’s start in life, we believe that with the right support there is no limit to what they can achieve.  Through innovation, lifelong relationships, and keeping all those we work with at the heart of what we do, we are transforming futures and changing lives.
