Why GoFundMe

GoFundMe is the #1 and most trusted leader in online fundraising. We built our reputation by serving and supporting our community every step of the way.

What sets GoFundMe apart


Our Trust & Safety team works around the clock to ensure your safety and protect against fraud. We also provide the industry’s first and only donor protection guarantee. With eight years of experience and the most money raised, GoFundMe has earned the trust of respected institutions and government officials around the world.

“The Trust and Safety team inside GoFundMe works with key stakeholders, including government officials, to ensure that funds raised on the platform are verified and that they go to the cause for which the money is being raised.”

We help families and communities get back on their feet quickly. The majority of our organizers can withdraw funds immediately, while many other platforms place a seven to 30-day hold. In just the first 30 days following Hurricane Harvey, GoFundMe delivered over $27 million directly to people affected by the storm.

GoFundMe: Powered by donors

Millions of people turn to GoFundMe in times of need to support themselves, friends, and strangers. When donors choose to give GoFundMe a voluntary tip as they make a donation, they allow us to maintain and improve our free platform so that we can help even more people. We are incredibly grateful for the donors who help us keep GoFundMe the most innovative and trusted place to support people in times of need.
