Raising Funds for a Beneficiary in an Unsupported Country

You are welcome to raise funds for almost anyone in any country. However, if that person is in a country where we don’t operate yet, you will be personally responsible for delivering the funds outside of GoFundMe and outlining a transparent withdrawal plan on your fundraiser story.

Click here for a list of our supported countries. 

Along with that, GoFundMe complies with all U.S. laws, including those set forth by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, US Department of the Treasury (OFAC). This means that in some rare cases, US sanctions will prohibit us from supporting a fundraiser for specific countries.

If this affects your fundraiser, you can apply for a license from OFAC here. Once that is done, our team will assist with the review of your account.
