COVID-19 Relief Fund

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared coronavirus a global pandemic. It is affecting people all across the globe. Whether it means deepening food insecurity, finding alternative childcare, losing jobs, or actually being infected, people’s health and daily lives are changing in big ways.

No matter who you are or where you are, we are all impacted by this pandemic to some degree. We’ve started the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help as many people as possible. With donations made to this fundraiser,, the nonprofit and charitable arm of GoFundMe, will issue microgrants to individuals, organizations and communities that have either been impacted themselves or are dedicated to helping those affected by the crisis. 

By contributing to the COVID-19 Relief Fund, you are able to support a larger cause, with a tax-deductible donation, while seeing the direct impact of your donation with regular updates and stories from the people you’ve helped. Any donation, big or small, helps us further our goal of helping as many individuals and organizations as possible.
