How GoFundMe Protects Donors From Fraudulent Fundraisers
GoFundMe is dedicated to empowering people to help people. An overwhelming majority of fundraisers on the site are safe and legitimate, as fraudulent fundraisers make up less than one-tenth of 1% of all fundraisers on GoFundMe.
In the rare instance that someone does create a misleading fundraiser with the intention of taking advantage of others’ generosity, GoFundMe takes swift action to resolve the issue.
Our policy is simple and strictly enforced: It is not permitted to lie or intentionally deceive donors on GoFundMe for financial or personal gain.
