Make Your Birthday Even More Meaningful: Create a Facebook Fundraiser

Survivors of abuse have felt the effects of this pandemic more than most. Invite your friends to support them in honor of your special day.

This year, “donate” your birthday in support of survivors by starting a Facebook Fundraiser. 

Create my facebook fundraiser

The unprecedented public health and economic crisis have disproportionately impacted our clients—low-income survivors of gender violence, more than 90% women of color and immigrants, and their vulnerable children. As New York State’s largest service provider and advocate for victims of abuse, Sanctuary’s services are perhaps more important now than ever before.

With Facebook, you can create a Birthday Fundraiser to get your friends and family involved in our mission to end gender-based violence. It’s an easy and effective way to get the word out about our work and help ensure we continue to be there for families in these times of greater need.

Create a Facebook Fundraiser

Start a fundraiser

  1. Click here to create your own Facebook fundraiser.
  2. Click ‘Select Nonprofit’ and search for Sanctuary for Families. You’ll know it’s us by our logo!
  3. Set your goal and tell your friends why you’re supporting Sanctuary or why supporting survivors of abuse is important to you.
  4. Start sharing your fundraiser and thanking your friends and family for their support! (We’ll make sure to thank them, as well.)

100% of donations made through Facebook go to the nonprofit organization; which means every dollar goes to our cause.

Sanctuary for Families is dedicated to the safety, healing, and self-determination of victims of domestic violence and related forms of gender violence. Through comprehensive services for our clients and their children, and through outreach, education, and advocacy, we strive to create a world in which freedom from gender violence is a basic human right.

From all of us at Sanctuary, thank you for standing with survivors.
