You may have noticed on your Facebook feed that a lot of your friends are fundraising for a charity or cause close to them in the lead up to your birthday.
Please be assured that charities such as The Shepherd Centre that are registered with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profit Commission receive 100% of the donations within 90 days.
Payments are made via Paypal so you can be sure they are secure.
Facebook and the Paypal Giving Fund do not make any profit off your donation.
The Shepherd Centre aren’t notified when a Facebook fundraiser is happening in our name, however each fundraiser is searchable so our team keep a regular eye on who might be fundraising for us.

- Navigate to the top bar search browser on Facebook and enter: Fundraiser
- A shortcut labelled Fundraiser will appear marked with a pink heart icon. Click visit
- On the next page you’ll be given the option to raise money for a non-profit, click select non-profit
- A pop up will appear with a drop down list of non-profits, type The Shepherd Centre in the search menu. Allow Facebook to find the relevant names and serve them to you rather than pressing enter. Click on The Shepherd Centre once it appears.

- Pick a photo. You have the option to add your own which we recommend.
- Click create and your fundraiser will go live! As we don’t always receive details of who donated, feel free to email us on [email protected] to let our team know you are fundraising. We’d love to connect!
