Invisible Disabilities Association Fundraising Will Benefit from an Improved Facebook Donation Policy
You can now contribute to the Invisible Disabilities Association on Facebook and rest assured every cent will go to our critical cause because of an improved Facebook donation policy. CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Nov. 26 that the company would stop deducting fees on donations to charitable organizations made through its service.
“Now 100 percent of the money people donate on Facebook goes to the causes they care about,” Zuckerberg said.
Matching Gifts included in Improved Facebook Donation Policy
As a result of the announcement regarding the improved Facebook donation policy, there is more good news for Invisible Disabilities. Zuckerberg said Facebook would create a $50 million annual fund to match charitable donations made on the social network.
“Fundraising on Facebook plays a critical role in supporting our mission to encourage, educate and connect people and organizations touched by illness, pain, and disability around the globe. We are very pleased with this news from Mr. Zuckerberg and grateful to the social platform Facebook provides,” said IDA CEO and Founder Wayne Connell. “We are also very grateful to everyone who participates in creating a fundraiser for IDA during the holiday season and beyond.”

Three More Ways to Support Invisible Disabilities Association
Supporting the Invisible Disabilities Association through eBay gives two options. First, you can list an item for charity. Second, you can make a straight donation. Selling an item you have listed for charity will allow you to select what percent of the proceeds to donate. As a result, you will be able to call attention to your IDA auction with a charity ribbon. When your listing for IDA sells, eBay will credit back a portion of the seller’s fee. Plus, your donations are tax deductible.
