We’ve helped families and communities get back on their feet quickly. In just the first 30 days following Hurricane Harvey, GoFundMe delivered over $27 million directly to people affected by the storm.


GoFundMe’s fundraising tools make it easy for you to create, share, and raise money for your campaign. From our mobile app to beneficiary management to team fundraising, we are constantly working on ways to improve our organizer and donor experiences—and change the way the world gives.

GoFundMe: Powered by donors

Millions of people turn to GoFundMe in times of need to support themselves, friends, and strangers. In addition to their donation, donors may choose to leave us a voluntary tip.
