Facebook Fundraisers

If you are celebrating a birthday or other special occasion, it is now possible for you to raise funds for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada using Facebook.

Here are our tips on how to make a successful fundraiser:

  1. Create a realistic goal
     
  2. Tell your friends why you are fundraising for us. When you make it personal, people will see how you have been impacted. You can edit the standard text that Facebook provides
     
  3. Tag us!

Please note:

  • All funds raised through Facebook go to the area of greatest need. Please do not use Facebook to fundraise for your Brain Tumour Walk or if you want the funds to go to a specific program. The reporting that we receive does not enable us to drive your thermometer on your Brain Tumour Walk page or designate your funds raised to a specific program
     
  • Please know that Facebook does not charge fees for donations made to nonprofits!  
     
  • In Canada, the fees are processed by PayPal Giving Fund. PayPal waives the fees for donations made to non-profits, like us, so we get 100% of the funds that you donate!
     
  • Your tax receipt will be issued by PayPal Giving Fund. We are unable to provide tax receipts for any donations made through Facebook
     
  • Having trouble with a donation? Please contact Facebook.  
     
  • The reports we receive from PayPal Giving Fund can take 15-90 days to arrive, so please tag us (@BrainTumourFdn) in your fundraiser so that we can thank everyone who donates in a timely way
     
  • Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada does not receive financial assistance from provincial or federal sources.

Janet and Adam's Story: Beating the odds to share another birthday together

Turning the same age, on the same day as my husband, never gets old. They call us, Astro-Twins. According to many different sources, the odds were low that it would have lasted. His Auntie May discouraged it from the start saying, “You are both Sagittarians and should NOT be together.” My daughter Isobel did a quick calculation. Fun fact. In a group of 100 people there is a 2.8% chance of two people having the same birthday.
