About GoFundMe

There’s a part of every one of us that dreams of a better world. That spark of inspiration to help a person, fix a neighborhood, or even change a nation. At GoFundMe, we empower both individuals and nonprofits to turn compassion into action. Because that is how change happens.

With free fundraising for all, we are creating the giving layer of the internet: a space where individuals, teams, organizations, and nonprofits can champion causes that matter and raise money to make a lasting difference. Through GoFundMe, people and organizations have the tools they need to share their cause far and wide and harness the power of generosity. We are transforming the way people give and changing lives—are you ready to join us?

Launched in 2010, GoFundMe is the world’s largest, free social fundraising platform. With over $5 billion raised and a community of more than 50 million donors, we’re on a mission to help people fundraise for personal, business, and charitable causes.

The GoFundMe difference

Trust

Our Trust & Safety team works around the clock to ensure your safety and protect against fraud. We also provide the industry’s first and only donor protection guarantee. With eight years of experience and the most money raised, GoFundMe has earned the trust of respected institutions and government officials around the world.

Speed

We help families and communities get back on their feet quickly. The majority of our organizers can withdraw funds immediately, while many other platforms place a seven to 30-day hold. In just the first 30 days following Hurricane Harvey, GoFundMe delivered over $27 million directly to people affected by the storm.

Reach

GoFundMe helps you easily share your story far and wide over email, text, and social media to rally support for your cause. In addition, we have a dedicated team looking for great stories to amplify and share with the media and our community.
