How To Share Your Fundraiser On Instagram

by John Symonds



Instagram famously only allows a single link in your bio, so if you want to share different content, you have to constantly update that link and then say "Check link in bio" on your posts. This is not ideal for sharing any other content, like your online fundraiser, so you will rarely see an Instagram "share" button alongside other share buttons for Facebook or Twitter.


FreeFunder has solved this problem, making it easy to share your fundraiser on Instagram, using Text-To-Donate!

Here's how it works:

First, choose a keyword for your fundraiser. You can do this by logging into your FreeFunder account and clicking on your campaign, and then going to the "Text-To-Donate" section. 

When you pick your keyword, FreeFunder will automatically create an Instagram-friendly image that displays your main fundraiser image along with text explaining how to Text-To-Donate! See the example below:


Once you've picked your Text-To-Donate keyword, a new Instagram "Share" button will appear on your fundraiser page next to all the other sharing options! When someone clicks on it, they'll be prompted to download this handy IG-friendly picture, so they can then add it to their Instagram page or story. It's that easy!

Text-To-Donate is free and available for personal campaigns, only on FreeFunder!

When Nancy Dear hit some rough times and needed help in order to pay her rent (both personal and for her hair salon), she set up a FreeFunder campaign as a last resort. Friends and community members starting pitching in immediately. Nancy needed $2,500 in order to get caught up, and after donations came in from 59 people in only 2 weeks, she ended up raising $2,655.

"Yesterday was particularly rough, but I made it through, got a hefty pile of sleep, and woke up this morning to the beautiful miracle of community support! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! You have saved my business baby, saved my home, saved me. I LOVE YOU. HAIRPARTY LOVES YOU. YOU ARE AMAZING. " - Nancy Dear
