Start Your Fundraiser Early, Before Matching Funds Run Out!
Hello friends! Thanks for deciding to help us fundraise on Facebook. Remember everything you raise on #GivingTuesday November 27, after 8AM EST will be tripled, while the matching funds last. We recommend you start your fundraiser as close to 8am as possible! You can create your fundraiser the day before, but make sure to let people know that donations won’t be matched until 8am on November 27.
Easy Steps to Setup Your Fundraiser with Pictures 😀
The first step is to make sure your logged into facebook and then click this link: https://www.facebook.com/fundraisers/
At the top of the page where it mentions #GivingTuesday click “Select Non-Profit”:
Then type in Kheprw Institute and we should show up then click on Kheprw Institute:
Then you can set your fundraising goal. We’d recommend that you set your goal to be at least 2-4 times what you’re planning to donate to your own fundraiser to get it started. You will also set the end date of the fundraiser. We’d suggest setting the end date to November 28 to create urgency for people to give on #GivingTuesday so they get the double match. Press next.
Now you’ll be asked to give the fundraiser a title and tell people why you’re raising money. You can copy and paste the template we have below or write your own! Or use the template and add your own flavor!

I Support Kheprw Institute – Help Launch Cafe Creative!
Why you’re raising money:
This #GivingTuesday I’m raising money for Kheprw Institute to launch Café Creative.
Imagine having a place in the community where creatives come together to work, conduct business and connect with each other. Where community members can enjoy art, music, film and other cultural events. Cafe Creative, located in the Renaissance Center at 3549 Boulevard Place, will provide space for local residents and artists to give life and expression to the world they envision where everyone is valued, respected and supported. It will also be a place where individuals are challenged in their thinking, exposed to different perspectives and encouraged to be bold, creative, and courageous in grappling with and addressing hard issues!
Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. And on GivingTuesday, Facebook and PayPal will match a total of $7 Million in donations. Additionally, the Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority in Partnership with Patronicity will match all donations to support Cafe Creative as part of their Creating Places Program. YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE TRIPLED! $25 = $75, $100 = $300, $1000 = $3000!
