Facebook are matching charity donations on #GivingTuesday

For just 24 hours on 28 November, any donations up to £400 that you make to Epilepsy Society through Facebook, will be doubled. This is a fantastic opportunity to boost donations which will help us to provide vital services for people with epilepsy, including our helpline and research into the causes of epilepsy.

In support of #GivingTuesday Facebook have partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to match up to a total of £200,000 in donations that are made on Facebook to not-for-profit organisations based in the United Kingdom.

For UK not-for-profit organisations, the match limit is £10,000 per non-profit and £400 per fundraiser or donate button.

There are three ways to make sure that your donation to Epilepsy Society is matched:

Donate on post


Donate on our Facebook page


Creating a fundraising page through Facebook

A huge thank you to all of you, your friends and family, for your donations.

The donations must be made on Facebook after 12:00 AM GMT on November 28, 2017 and any donations that are made anonymously qualify for the match.
