Start by determining what you want to achieve for your nonprofit with Meta technologies. Do you want to reach more supporters? Grow your community? Fundraise? With a clear goal in mind, you’ll have a better chance of getting the results you want.
By creating a Facebook and Instagram account, you can easily connect with supporters in a whole new way. From there, you can use our tools to engage with people in more meaningful ways and empower them to help you make a greater impact in the real world.
Your first step is to create a Facebook account. Once you have an account, you will be able to create a Facebook Page for your nonprofit organization.
You can use your Page to share information about your nonprofit, reach more supporters and make meaningful connections as you build your online community. You can also create a Facebook Group where people who share an interest in your cause can come together.

First, you’ll need to create a personal Instagram account. Then, you can convert your personal profile to a Business account for your nonprofit which anyone can follow and interact with. Your business account will give you access to Instagram features that can help you grow and fundraise.
When supporters come together over a shared interest or commitment to helping a cause, the impact can be incredible.
3.45 billion people were active on Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp or Messenger on a monthly basis as of March 31, 2021.1 And connecting is just the beginning. You can engage your community to help you raise awareness and fundraise.
Over 100 million fundraiser organizers and donors have raised more than $6 billion globally for causes they care about on Facebook and Instagram alone.
Reach your audience on a wider scale to share information about upcoming events, milestones, fundraisers and other news with one-to-many tools including a Facebook Page, Facebook Group and Instagram Business account.
A Facebook Page gives your nonprofit a public-facing presence on Facebook and a place to share information about your organization, such as your mission and news about events. Think of your Page as your storefront: it’s visible for everyone to browse. People can become a member of your community by liking or following your Page. Only a Community Manager you choose can post information on your Page.
A Facebook Group is a place where people who share a common interest can gather and exchange information. This is where the community talks. Groups can be public or private. Facebook Groups are managed by a Community Manager you choose. Both the Community Manager and community members can post on a Facebook Group.
You can use an Instagram Business account to share your organization’s mission and contact information, and even collect donations through a Donate button on your profile bio, if eligible. Your supporters can also raise money for your cause on Instagram through Live, Stories and Feed.
Connect with people directly to answer their questions or start a conversation through Messenger and WhatsApp.
Facebook Messenger is available through your Facebook Page and enables you to communicate directly with supporters on any device using the Messenger app.
WhatsApp is a fast, simple and reliable way to message anyone in the world. It is free to download and available in certain countries.
Workplace makes sure important messages get to the right people at the right time in the right way.
Anyone in your organization, such as an employee or volunteer, can be a Community Manager. Community Managers are in charge of building, growing and maintaining meaningful communities. Online communities come in many shapes and sizes. They can meet in nonprofit Facebook Pages, in Facebook Groups or Instagram Accounts.
