Does Facebook receive a percentage of my donation?
No – Facebook does not charge any processing fees nor do they receive any percentage of your gift to NVPR. One hundred percent of funds donated through Facebook’s platform are passed on to NVPR.
How is giving to NVPR on Facebook different from giving on your website?
Facebook’s giving platform does not share your payment information with us, and you may elect to provide your email and other contact information if you’d like us to follow up directly with a thank-you note or receive further email updates from NVPR: We really hope you will want to stay in touch.
When you give to NVPR through our website, we take down your contact information but do not store your payment information to protect your security.
Can I still receive a thank-you gift if I give through a Facebook Fundraiser?
Absolutely – if you donate through a Facebook fundraiser that aligns with the minimum contribution for one of our thank-you gifts, you can forward your receipt from Facebook to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to let you know your choices of thank you recognition.
How does Facebook store my information? Does Facebook pass on that information to NVPR?
Please see Facebook’s help page regarding donations to understand what information they may store after you make a gift to NVPR or any other nonprofit. Facebook only passes on information to NVPR if you choose to provide that, however you can remain anonymous when you donate if you would prefer.
Will NVPR issue me a tax receipt for my donation through Facebook?
No – since the gift is technically made to Facebook, Facebook automatically generates a tax receipt that you will receive via email to the email address associated with your account.
I gave through Facebook but didn’t get a thank you in the mail or via email, why is that?
It is likely that we did not receive contact information from you. If you’d like to receive a thank you letter, or information on how NVPR puts contributions to use, please email email@example.com with a copy of your donation receipt from Facebook attached.
Can I set up monthly donations to NVPR through Facebook?
Yes, Facebook does allow you to set up monthly recurring donations to NVPR. However, if you are interested in becoming a sustaining member, we encourage you to sign up directly through our website so that you are able to fully access all the benefits.

HOW DO I SET UP A FACEBOOK FUNDRAISER?
When you're logged in to Facebook, use this link to quickly and easily set up a fundraiser on behalf of NVPR: https://fb.com/fund/
Select “Nevada Public Radio Corp.”
Go ahead and personalize your message about supporting what you love about KNPR news, NPR or Classical 897 but we ask that you use this official logo as it is here. Please be respectful of our cherished NPR brand and we’re happy to advise if you have a question about using our logos. Pro Tip – people love seeing people! So your smiling face will be more exciting than an image of our call letters.
Why is NVPR using Facebook Fundraisers?
We don’t want there to be any barrier to acting on your inclination to support what you love about any of our content on air or online. Since so many of us spend time with Facebook, it makes sense to use their system which can make it easy for anyone already giving to other causes through their fundraising platform to give to NVPR as well. If you are inclined to solicit your network of friends to join you in supporting something important to you, let’s work together so everyone has a positive experience.
I set up a Facebook Fundraiser benefitting NVPR, but would like help on how to thank my friends and family who gave to the fundraiser. Can you help me with that?
Yes! We are so grateful that you’ve hosted a fundraiser for us. Since not all donor information is passed on to us and some people give anonymously, we encourage you to reach out and thank people as much as possible. If you’d like some sample language to use, just ask.
