transaction fees – Nonprofits will receive 100% of the proceeds
made through the donation sticker.

Ready to get philanthropic? Here’s everything you need

donation stickers to raise money for nonprofits including Oceana,

following, followed by foundations supported by people you

How to Use the Instagram Stories Donation Sticker For
Nonprofits

If you’re actively on Facebook, you’ve probably noticed a
friend posting a link to donate to a favorite charity for their
birthday or for a significant life event. Facebook’s donation tool, the
Charitable Giving feature, has reportedly
raised over $1 billion as of November 2018
.

The Instagram Stories donation sticker is expected to see
similar outcomes, and has the potential to be a big game changer
for nonprofits on the platform. Previously, nonprofits on Instagram
only had the option to share a donation link in their bio, or a
 “swipe-up” link in their story if they have above 10K
followers.

Now, nonprofits have endless reach with the Instagram Stories
donation sticker, allowing for their supporters to share a quick
and easy way for their followers to contribute to the cause.

The donation sticker also gives nonprofits the chance to be a
more creative when sharing their mission and asking for
support.

Take The American Cancer
Society
for examples, who uses the donation sticker to show all
the ways your contribution can make a difference:

The nonprofit Water, committed to
providing safe water and sanitation for all, shared a quick
“how-to” on the new donation sticker, encouraging their
followers to add it to their stories:

Nonprofits can also use the sticker to build awareness or share
an announcement. The ALS
Association
shared the donation sticker to let their followers
know May is ALS Awareness month:

While the donation sticker is available to all users, businesses
can put the new feature to good use, too!

This year, many businesses are jumping on Instagram Stories to
share ways their brand is making more sustainable and ethical
business choices. The new donation sticker is another great way to
further their brand’s mission and share the causes that matter to
them most.

Influencers and celebrities are already jumping on the new
feature as well. For example, Charles Melton for the
popular series Riverdale, took to Instagram Stories to share his
support toward the Special Olympics:

Singer Pharrell
Williams
also shared the new sticker, asking followers to join
him in supporting From One Hand to AnOTHER
to help provide children across the US with the tools and resources
to meet their unique potential:

However you choose to use it, the new donation sticker is a
great way to share your support and a chance for Instagrammers to
help make a difference.
