Hi, I'm the Executive Director of Huntsville Urban Bike Share Coop, (HUBS Coop). I was wondering if anyone else has had the experience I'm having with Facebook. We created our page HUBS Coop (Page ID 204957446599511) before getting our IRS Letter of Determination. When we received the favorable letter of determination I applied to Facebook to get tax-exempt status so I could do a fundraiser. Facebook gave us the status (I just did a fundraiser) but on the same day they "unpublished" our page!? I can not find a way to appeal or find out what went wrong so that I can connect the problem. Any ideas from this group?

This is not unusual! Here's an example of how this happens to legitimate nonprofits:
This page has steps on how to appeal to Facebook:
I hope those that this has happened to will share here on TechSoup how they dealt with it!
