Allow Facebook Users to Give to Political Causes

This petition had 286 supporters

Almost everyone who wants to run for office or rally their community to action faces the same first problem: money. Fundraising takes up a large amount of time from activists, leaders, candidates, staff (if you can afford it), and supporters. Facebook has an opportunity to help further causes and save time by allowing users to contribute to campaigns and political causes.

With the advancement of Facebook's fundraising allowing users to raise personally, or for US 501(c)(3) non profits, Facebook should expand its options to allow for a users contributions to be made online to 501(c)(4) non profits, candidate committees, and political action committees.

We’ve seen an unprecedented amount of political action in the last year. We’ve also learned how Facebook's size and influence can impact our every day lives. Let’s make sure the impact they make is for the better. 

Helping local leaders champion their causes or run for office with more options to attract small donations can only help our politics.
