Getting Started: Posting Donations to Facebook

Posting to Facebook takes place automatically when you check the box during the approval of a donation, sponsorship or grant request.

This item describes how to connect GivingTrax to Facebook and, optionally, posting donations within your Facebook stream simply by checking a box.

To share donations automatically to Facebook as a post, you must first link GivingTrax to your Facebook page.

First, to link GivingTrax, you will need to be signed into Facebook and be an authorized administrator of the page in which you wish the posts to appear. If you do not know who manages your company’s Facebook page, please contact us for assistance. If you do not yet have a Facebook page and desire to create one, we’re happy to help.

Next, in Facebook, click on the gear icon in the upper right and choose to use Facebook as yourself.

In a 2nd browser session, log into GivingTrax, Select “Business Profile” in the main navigation bar, click the “edit your business” option, then click on the Social Tab.

Enter your Facebook url, then click on the blue hotlink that says “Integrate your Business Facebook Account”. If Facebook asks for permission to allow GivingTrax access, choose “okay”.

When the link is created, a new content box appears titled “post announcements to”.   Click on the drop-down arrow and choose the desired page, then click “Save”.

As you approve donations, you can now check the box to post the donation to your Facebook page.   It will appear in your content stream.
