Many nonprofits used the free fundraising tools offered on Facebook and Instagram for GivingTuesday 2021, and unlocked the generosity of millions of people around the world.

Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Meta, shared a post last month expressing her gratitude for the donors and nonprofit organizations who raised more than $120 million for different causes.

And, people have now raised over $6 billion for personal fundraisers and nonprofit causes across Facebook and Instagram. Thank you to everyone who has started or supported a fundraiser using these tools – it’s amazing to see the impact you continue to make.

“I’m grateful to the more than 1.5 million people on Facebook and Instagram who raised more than $120 million for good causes on #GivingTuesday and the two weeks leading up to it. These donations went to 105,000 nonprofit organizations.

It is wonderful to witness such a huge wave of generosity and compassion from people all over the world for people all over the world.

My heartfelt thanks go to all of you who joined in. It's never too late to give – and donating money is just one of the ways you can do it this holiday season. You can also give blood, support local businesses, or help out in your community using our tools. Whatever you can give will make a difference to someone.”

— Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer, Meta
