Are you new to the Facebook Group life or just looking to expand your connections in the nonprofit world?
Or maybe you are feeling overwhelmed by the number of groups out there on Facebook talking about fundraising…it’s getting crazy!
That’s why we compiled some of the best Facebook Groups for nonprofits out there today.
Before we share our top favorite groups, here are some benefits of being a part of them.
The Benefits of Facebook Groups for Nonprofits
If you’re on the fence about joining more groups, check out these benefits of connecting on Facebook for your nonprofit.
- Reach more donors: by connecting with more Facebook groups, you’re increasing the chances of your nonprofit being seen. Each share, comment, or connection can be a closer reach to your new donors.
- Increase your supporters: by joining Facebook Groups you are showing support and increasing your own supporters by doing so.
- Virtual fundraising venue: Facebook is a place where you can host events, live stream, or share your fundraising story, virtually, and from anywhere.
- Community building: whether your local or international, you can build a solid community by engaging with others in their Facebook Groups. It’s so important to build a community you support and trust in the nonprofit industry.
- Create nonprofit Facebook Ads: if you’d like to chip in a little dough to get the fundraiser ball rolling, you can create nonprofit Facebook Ads at a low cost.
Those benefits alone can help you raise money and meet your donation goals. Now let’s dive into the groups!

Its purpose is to discuss the challenges they face as well as share great things they have done with their WordPress website for others to learn and benefit from.From the Facebook page: WordPress is an excellent platform that enables nonprofit organizations to manage their website themselves. But there are so many different tools, plugins, themes, and more available that it can be hard to navigate what’s best for you and your organization.
This group is moderated by the following WordPress/Nonprofit professionals:
