Facebook has released a new set of fundraising tools specifically for non-profits, making it easier for organizations to accept donations and to improve the overall donation experience for your audience. The Fundraising Tools are free to use and now have a Donate Now button available in two places: on the Page Header and on Page Posts, but it’s not able to be added as a Page Post’s Call to Action. This makes it easier for donors to share their donation experience with friends. A receipt is sent to donors, which is branded with your organization’s information. With this update, it’s easier to find and donate to organizations. The funds you raise on Facebook will go directly to your nonprofit. Your organization has full control on how to use the funds to support either a specific cause or a general fund.
When many people think about their local synagogue or Jewish community center, one of the first things that comes to mind is its membership. And there’s a good reason why; in order to create a local hub for community and tradition, membership is vital. Plus, the benefits are manifold. As we create membership campaigns for synagogues and Jewish community centers, we are inspired each and every time by the generosity and sense of responsibility of our people.The desire to continue this sense of community from generation to generation, or L’dor v’dor, is not only a benefit of membership, but it’s also what drives this sense of responsibility. Some of the numerous volunteer efforts put forth by the Jewish community centers and synagogues include anything from volunteering on Thanksgiving to rallying for human rights. These communities are coming together to do such good things in the world! Together, they demonstrate tikkun olam. By bringing people of all ages in close proximity, they can interact and experience Jewish life together. They can connect with individuals of different backgrounds, denominations and interests. And they can see that despite these differences, there are values and traditions they share.
