Facebook has announced that fundraising for personal causes is on its way to Canadian users. The feature has been available in the U.S. since May.
Canadian Facebook users over the age of 18 will be able to test out fundraising in beta for categories such as medical, pet care, education, crisis relief, funeral and loss, community and sports and more.

1. On mobile, tap the menu icon and select ‘Fundraisers,’ or on desktop, visit facebook.com/fundraisers
2. Choose between raising money for a Friend, Yourself or Someone or Something Not on Facebook
3. Select a title for the fundraiser, provide details for the cause it’s supporting and start raising money
