My friend made a donation on Facebook, why can't I see it on my fundraising page?

Facebook's privacy policy prohibits us from receiving your donor's information so we are unable to add that donation to your fundraising page totals in a timely manner. If you want your friend's donations to be added to your total, ask them to donate directly to your page. Be sure to send them the link and use that link on your social media posts.

I want to get my company to sponsor the event. I'd like some flyers or posters to help promote the event.
