fundraising

via facebook fundraisers

The best way for you to help raise money for the Cook Forest Conservancy is through Facebook – the CFC receives all the funds raised during a Facebook campaign, with no deduction of processing fees. Facebook takes all major credit cards for donations, emails your donors a receipt, and sends the gifts to the CFC directly. Creating your fundraising campaign is easy:

  1. Click here to start your Facebook Fundraiser
  2. Choose a photo – feel free to use any that you like from the CFC galleries at smugmug, or use the one below [right-click and save to your computer] – and fill in the fundraiser details, i.e. your goal amount and end date.  It’s great if you can personalize the campaign by using an engaging title, and mentioning what Cook Forest means to you, or what you hope for the park in the future.
  3. Click Create
  4. Ask your friends to donate and to share the fundraiser on their pages.
