Changing Your Profile Photo

A thumbnail picture and your Facebook name will only appear next to your name if you connect a Facebook profile to your GoFundMe account. This helps verify your identity and adds to your fundraiser's authenticity.

If you do not have a Facebook account or choose not to connect to Facebook, the gray silhouette will appear instead.

Since the picture that appears in the "Created by" section is pulled directly from your Facebook profile picture, changing your profile picture on Facebook is the only way to change what appears here on GoFundMe.

Here is how you can update your Facebook profile picture from your computer: 

1. Log in to Facebook here
2. Visit your timeline.
3. Hover your mouse over your profile picture. An option to "Edit profile picture" will appear. 
4. Click any of those options to update your picture.

And that's it! Your new Facebook profile picture will now appear on your GoFundMe fundraiser.
