As of 2019, a new fundraising feature within Facebook is available. Facebook may prompt you to create a Facebook Fundraiser when you create or share a post about BC Children’s Hospital Foundation or RBC Race for the Kids. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to track donations that come through Facebook fundraising pages, so it is important to NOT USE one for your Race for the Kids fundraising. When donations come through Facebook, we do not have the ability to see donor information or to who the donation should be attributed to, so these funds cannot be added to your Race for the Kids page or counted towards your fundraising minimum.

As this is a Facebook feature, we cannot prevent the prompt from appearing on your Facebook page. When prompted, simply select the X in the top right corner to remove the prompt. If you have set up a Facebook Fundraiser, please deactivate it immediately. We still encourage sharing your Race for the Kids personal page on Facebook through your participant centre or by simply pasting your page link in a new post. We apologize for the inconvenience and are happy to answer any questions regarding Facebook Fundraising.
