As the GoFundMe organizer, your name will appear on the account, and you cannot be anonymous. We have this policy in place to promote transparency between the organizer and supporters.
This helps donors feel more comfortable contributing by showing them who is collecting the funds, and gives them a point of contact in case they have any questions.
Please also note that if the account is connected to a Facebook profile, you won't be able to edit your name without disconnecting your Facebook profile first, which can be done in your GoFundMe account settings.
How to change your name
After signing into your GoFundMe account, follow these steps to change the name that shows on your fundraising page:
- Select your name at the top right of your screen (if you're on the GoFundMe app, tap the “Me” icon in the bottom right corner)
- Select "Account settings" from the drop-down menu
- Change your name and click "Save changes" at the bottom of the screen
