    Using crowdfunding to pay bills
    Emergencies like car accidents or unexpected bills can wipe out your savings account and leave you with debt for years to come. Countless people have launched emergency fundraising efforts through GoFundMe when they didn’t know how to get help paying bills.

    Crowdfunding lets you raise money from your friends, family and community online. While some people aren’t sure if their need is worthy enough for an online fundraiser, there is no cause too small or too big for GoFundMe.

    Why fundraising makes a difference

    Most government and not-for-profit programmes have strict eligibility requirements, long waiting times and a capped amount of money they can offer. These factors often make it difficult to receive the financial help you need, when you need it. Online fundraising is often the quickest and most efficient way to help with rising cost of living and find emergency financial assistance. Through GoFundMe, you can start fundraising right away and receive your donations within just a few days.

    Setting up a GoFundMe takes just a few minutes and we make it easy to share your fundraiser with people who can rally around you.
