Facebook is now a powerful tool for fundraising, with over $3 billion raised via the social media platform today. Whether you need to raise money for a charity, business, or personal reasons, Facebook is a great place to start. It’s easy to create and manage a fundraiser on Facebook, and you can run several of them simultaneously.
But what happens when you need to delete your fundraiser?
To delete a fundraiser on Facebook, you need to locate the fundraising event you need to delete under the “Fundraisers” section and click on it. Next, click on the “More” button and select “Delete Fundraiser” from the menu. Confirm the action by clicking “Delete” again.
Ensure you have your reasons clear before you delete a fundraiser because this is a permanent action, and you will not be able to restore the fundraiser later on.
A Facebook fundraiser is a convenient way to raise funds for a personal cause or charity through the power of friends and family. People will be able to donate directly to your cause, making fundraising easy for you, the organizers, and donors.
