The GoFundMe campaign link is the bridge between social networks and your campaign. The link is how you share your GoFundMe and how your networks will see your campaign. The link is also how social networks share your GoFundMe for you. This is why the campaign link is so very important.
GoFundMe will always assign you a link, which is unique to your campaign. You can choose to customise this link. Even after you customise your link, both the original link and the custom link will work.
Customising Your Link
Your link helps people find and share your GoFundMe. This is what people will use to find and donate to your campaign, so it is important that it is easy to remember.
Let us take a quick look at two examples:
The second example is much easier to type and find. As a rule of thumb, try to make your link as clear and simple as possible. The link should also let your donors know how they can take action. In this case, all Gary’s network needs to do is see the link and they will know he needs help.
To customise your link from your computer, follow these steps:
- Sign in here www.gofundme.com/sign-in

How Do I Share My Campaign Link?
There are many ways you can share your campaign link.
First, when you sign in to your GoFundMe account, click on the "Share" button at the top of your Dashboard. Once there, you will see the "Facebook", "Twitter" and "Email" options. Sharing from there is a simple way to share your campaign link with your social networks.
We also suggest texting your campaign link to your friends right when you launch your campaign. This will ensure they see your campaign as soon as possible and can offer feedback. You can then share your campaign link through Facebook message, email or even over the phone.
