Set your Facebook group to "Secret" to make it anonymous.

Facebook groups let users share messages and multimedia with a private set of Facebook users. As a Facebook group admin, you can invite whomever you wish to join. Anything shared within the group is not shared on members' Facebook profiles. Three main privacy settings, accessible through the group's general settings, exist for Facebook groups: Open, Closed and Secret. "Open" allows anyone to view and join the group. "Closed" allows anyone to see that the group exists, but only members can view the actual content. The most anonymous privacy setting is "Secret." Only members can see a secret Facebook group.
