It’s Here: TeamRaiser Integration With Facebook Fundraiser!

Published

569dbf6d269598d9623729e2bfadb785-huge-fbWe’re excited to announce the availability of the Blackbaud TeamRaiser Integration with Facebook Fundraiser for all US-based customers.  The new functionality brings increased reach and efficiency to your peer-to-peer fundraising events. Early testing of this integration has demonstrated that when participants link a Facebook fundraiser to their TeamRaiser personal page, it's even easier for them to exceed their fundraising goals.

The Facebook API integration allows donations that originate on Facebook to be processed by Blackbaud TeamRaiser, giving you a simplified way to manage, process and record these Facebook donations. And, most importantly, your participants see their personal page thermometer go up (to reflect these Facebook donations) in near real-time! 

The integration helps organizations:

  • Improve participant and donor experience – Make it easier for your participants to reach out to their social networks and exceed their goals faster; their friends and family can make donations without leaving Facebook.
     
  • Raise more money, more efficiently – Your supporters can fundraise simultaneously with Facebook and TeamRaiser; donations sync between both systems.  
     
  • Increase reach and efficiency – When your participants set up Facebook Fundraisers through the TeamRaiser integration, they create native Facebook content, which is given higher priority on newsfeeds.

Want more details? Check out this on-demand webinar to learn more about the integration and the process for getting set up.

Is this integration free or is there a fee, subscription?

Patti Posey - Stamford Hospital Foundation
Hi Patti -  No, there is not an additional subscription or transaction fee for the integration.  Some customers may choose to purchase services if they have a lot of customization on their current Participant Center and/or want additional help with adoption. 
It says US-based customers, when will this be available in Canada?
Hi Justine - The integration with Facebook Fundraiser is not available in Canada yet. We are working with Facebook to outline a plan for their international capabilities. We will report back as soon as we have an update on timing.
Are there additional credit card processing fees generated by using the Facebook integration - or will gifts still process through Blackbaud Merchant SErvices?
 
Hi Marianne - Gifts will still process through Blackbaud Merchant Services. There will be no additional credit card processing fees. 
Does this integrate with Blackbaud Raisers Edge/Net Community?  Or is there another resource for that?
