Creating a GMB page with a facebook page as the Website?

I help non-profit organizations with their local SEO and Social media and I had a question about  organizations that do not have a website yet have a Facebook profile. 

When setting up their GMB page, is it okay to use their Facebook page as the website url section in GMB?

 

Many of the organization  that I help do not have websites  yet, but still want to list theit locations on GMB, so that others can find them.

 

Thanks

please refer to their guidelines:

Under "website and phone" oyu will find this rule:

 

 

  • Do not provide phone numbers or URLs that redirect or "refer" users to landing pages or phone numbers other than those of the actual business, including pages created on social media sites."
