Other Ways to Get Involved

Contribute to the Band Using a Facebook Birthday Fundraiser!​

The instructions below list the steps to take in Facebook to create a fundraiser for your birthday. Please know that while

these instructions are specific to birthdays, you may use this Facebook feature to raise money for the Band at any time for any occasion! Also, as Facebook may alter these steps from time to time, AND as each person's Facebook look and feel may be customized, we aim to keep our instructions up to date!  Our last update was on 11/1/2023.

  1.  Click on the menu Icon (It looks like a square made up of 3 lines of 3 dots in each line).  It should be located in the upper right corner next to the Message and Notification icons.  


  2. Go to Community Resources or Fundraisers.

  3. On the right side of the drop down you will see the “Create” Column. Scroll to the bottom where you will see Fundraiser. Click on Fundraiser. 

  4.  Choose Nonprofit as your type by clicking in the square. 

  5.  In “Search” type Easton 

  6. Click on “Easton Municipal Band” 

  7. On the left column scroll to make changes to the following: 

    1.  Amount.  Between $200 and $500 is an appropriate amount

    2. End Date 

    3. Title (example – “Birthday Fundraiser for Easton Municipal Band”) 

    4. Why are you raising money?  This is the text your FB Friends will see.
      Example:   “Instead of gifts for my birthday this year, I am asking you to join me in supporting a good cause. I’m raising money for Easton Municipal Band and your contributions will help make an impact. Whether you donate $5.00 or $500, every little bit helps keep music alive in our community. Thank you for your support. “

  8.  Click on Create. 

You will be prompted to post the fundraiser to your timeline and to share it with your Friends, specific friends, groups, etc. Periodically you may also be prompted to update your fundraiser (updating will repost the fundraiser to your timeline.) These updates are not necessary, but you may choose to keep those donating updated.

You can also share your fundraiser on your Twitter or Instagram account. 

The funds collected are forwarded to our P.O. box once a month and deposited in the Band account. Thank you!
