Changing your profile photo

You can only have a profile photo on GoFundMe if you link to your Facebook account. Once linked, our platform will populate your profile picture and Facebook name to be displayed on your fundraiser page. This helps verify your identity and adds to your fundraiser's authenticity.

If you don’t have a Facebook account or choose not to link to Facebook, a grey silhouette will appear instead.

Since the profile photo is pulled directly from your Facebook profile picture, changing your profile picture on Facebook is the only way to change what appears on GoFundMe.

How to update your Facebook profile picture

  1. Log in to Facebook here
  2. Navigate to your profile page
  3. Select "Edit Profile" and then "Edit" within the Profile Picture portion
  4. Select a photo from your device to use as your new profile photo
