Facebook Fundraisers

If you are celebrating a birthday or other special occasion, it is now possible for you to raise funds for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada using Facebook.

Here are our tips on how to make a successful fundraiser:

  1. Create a realistic goal
     
  2. Tell your friends why you are fundraising for us. When you make it personal, people will see how you have been impacted. You can edit the standard text that Facebook provides
     
  3. Tag us!

Please note:

  • All funds raised through Facebook go to the area of greatest need. Please do not use Facebook to fundraise for your Brain Tumour Walk or if you want the funds to go to a specific program. The reporting that we receive does not enable us to drive your thermometer on your Brain Tumour Walk page or designate your funds raised to a specific program
     
  • Please know that Facebook does not charge fees for donations made to nonprofits!  
     
  • In Canada, the fees are processed by PayPal Giving Fund. PayPal waives it's fees for donations made to non-profits, like us, so we get 100% of the funds that you donate!
     
  • Your tax receipt will be issued by PayPal Giving Fund. We are unable to provide tax receipts for any donations made through Facebook
     
  • Having trouble with a donation? Please contact Facebook.  
     
  • The reports we receive from PayPal Giving Fund can take 15-90 days to arrive, so please tag us (@BrainTumourFdn) in your fundraiser so that we can thank everyone who donates in a timely way
     
  • Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada does not receive financial assistance from provincial or federal sources.

Aaron's Story: I refuse to sink

In the summer of 2017, while at work, I had my first episode of what I would now call vertigo or double vision. It was something I've never experienced before. Everything in front of me seemed to sink into the ground, my hands moving in super slow motion. It lasted about for a good 30 seconds before everything went back to normal. I brushed it off and continued on with the day.
