 A Quick Warning About Facebook

Facebook is promoting their donation service by prompting people to “Add a Donate Button” to their Facebook posts (see screen shot below). This prompt typically appears anytime Facebook’s algorithm perceives that the post is connected to donations or nonprofits.

Donate Button FB Screenshot

Be aware that if you choose the “Select Nonprofit” button and select Special Olympics Colorado through this Facebook button, you will be donating through Facebook, and not through Colorado Gives. This means that none of the donations made through Facebook will count towards receiving a portion of the Incentive Fund on CO Gives Day.
