Without the support of our community, the work that we do would not be possible. Fundraising is a great way to make a huge impact and get your whole community rallied together for the cause.

Organize a fundraising event

There are so many fun ways to join the fight against CMV – everything from organizing a bake sale or lemonade stand to planning a tournament or a gala dinner.

We would be thrilled to provide you with all of the information and tools that you need to organize and plan a fundraising activity.

Host an online fundraiser

Fundraising has never been easier. We have put together a few tips to help you get started with your online fundraising campaign:

To create a “Fundraiser” on Facebook – for your birthday, or any occasion:

  1. Head to Facebook’s “home” page, and click “Fundraisers” on the left sidebar (indicated with a coin icon).
  2. Click “Select Nonprofit” and fill in our complete name: Canadian CMV Foundation.
  3. Enter the fundraiser info (fundraising goal, end date) for your fundraiser. Click next.
  4. Provide a title and description for your fundraising event, and click next.
  5. Pick a cover photo or video for your fundraiser, and click “Create.” That’s it!

To create a post with a donation button on an Event Page, Business/Group Page/Personal Page:

  1. In your Event Page, Business/Group Page, or Personal Page, click on the field near the top of your profile’s feed to add a post. (This field will say “Write Something” on an Event Page or Business/Group Page; or “What’s on your mind?” on a personal page.)
  2. Find the option to “Support Non-Profit” in the options for your post. This will be indicated by a coin icon. You may need to click on the three-dot icon to reveal more options for your post to find this.
  3. Fill in our complete name: Canadian CMV Foundation. Enter the content for your post.
  4. Post away! These funds will now be automatically submitted to us via Facebook (Canada)’s donations platform, PayPal Giving Fund. That’s it!

Tag a “Fundraiser” in Facebook stories:

  1. If you’ve already created a “fundraiser” (as explained above), you can now create a button in your Facebook stories to direct people to donate to your fundraiser, by first creating a new “Story” entry. To do this, head to your Facebook app and select “Add a story” at the top of your news feed.
  2. Select an image or a background for your Facebook story.
  3. Select the “sticker” icon at the top of your screen, and select “Fundraiser”.
  4. Search for the name you’ve given your fundraiser. Ensure you’ve found the exact match of your fundraiser title, and click it to create a button on your story.
  5. Stretch and move that button to ensure it can be read, and then click “Share” at the bottom right of your screen to share it to your story. That’s it!
