Charitable Contributions Using Facebook Gifts

Facebook just announced charitable contributions via Facebook Gifts. Now, in addition to being able to give birthday gifts and such, you can donate to a handful of charities now too.

We are especially pleased to be launching this test now آ– when so many people are looking for new ways to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy, or assist those most in need around the holidays. With each charitable contribution on Facebook, you can choose which nonprofit you would like to support. Or if you don’t know which organization to choose, you can let your friend make the choice. For this initial test, we partnered with 11 nonprofit organizations آ– from the American Red Cross, which assists families recover from disasters, to, which helps fund the needs of teachers and their classrooms.
