GoFundMe Gives Back

Gives Back isn’t just a program. It’s the spirit of GoFundMe.

Started by GoFundMe’s founders, the Gives Back program puts our core values of spreading empathy and doing the right thing into practice. Over the years, we have given millions of dollars back to fundraisers that move us.

Why we give back


At GoFundMe, every Tuesday is Giving Tuesday.

Every week, our employees have the opportunity to nominate a fundraiser for Gives Back. And if selected, GoFundMe makes a donation of up to $5K to that fundraiser on Giving Tuesday.

Gives Back allows our employees to see first-hand the direct and powerful impact of their work. Quarterly, GoFundMe invites Gives Back recipients to speak at our offices and give our employees the opportunity to listen and learn from our customers’ experiences.
