Mark your calendars!

Black Friday. Cyber Monday.

#GivingNFEDTuesday Is Our Global Celebration of Giving

Donate Now

We have an anonymous donor who will match up to $10,000 raised on Facebook for the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED) on #GivingNFEDTuesday!  You can have a major impact.

Look into your heart and create a Facebook Fundraiser for Giving Tuesday through our Facebook page. Share your stories. Invite your Facebook friends to your event.

We also encourage you to take and post #UNselfie pictures on why and how you give to the NFED using Facebook and Instagram. Be creative to get extra visibility and have fun! Use lots of images, GIFs and maybe even short videos to stand out.

The great news? Facebook doesn’t charge any credit card fees: 100% of the donations come to the NFED.

If you prefer to not set up a Facebook fundraiser, you can donate now.

Set Up A Facebook Fundraiser

We have put together a toolkit which walks you step-by-step through the easy process of creating a Facebook fundraiser for the NFED.

Your Gift Could Be Matched Twice!

Facebook and Paypal will also match up to $7 million in donations made on Facebook on November 27 to U.S.-based nonprofits like ours. You must use Paypal to make your donation to qualify.

  • The match applies to fundraisers for the NFED, including birthday fundraisers, on Facebook, and donate buttons.
  • If you’re located outside the United States and want to fundraise for the NFED, donations to your fundraiser are eligible to be matched.
  • Donations up to $250,000 per nonprofit and $20,000 per donor are eligible to be matched.
  • Facebook and PayPal will match donations starting at 5 a.m. PST, 6 a.m. MST, 7 a.m. CST and 8 a.m. EST on November 27 and continue matching donations to nonprofits until the $7M match runs out. This match goes extremely fast, usually within the first two hours. So timing is of the essence!
