Haven’t heard of Power Editor? It’s a complimentary tool provided by Facebook that can be downloaded at the click of a button. If you manage multiple Facebook accounts or campaigns for your nonprofit, Power Editor might become your new bud, making it easy to create, edit, manage and optimize multiple ads at once.

Using Power Editor,  you can create a Facebook ad that targets your current donors by importing your list of emails for active donors.
