Why GoFundMe

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

What sets GoFundMe apart

Trust

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.”

Speed

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.

Tools

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.

Reach

GoFundMe helps you easily share your story far and wide over email, text, and social media to rally support for your cause. In addition, we have a dedicated team looking for great stories to amplify and share with the media and our community.

Service

Our best-in-class Customer Happiness agents are available 24/7 to answer your questions, offer guidance, and support you every step of the way. We care about your questions, which is why we’re committed to providing a rapid and friendly response.
