When your colleagues or employees have been impacted by the devastation by Hurricane Harvey or Irma, it is more important than ever to extend a helping hand. We have ways for your company to support individual employees in need, set up donation matching or team fundraise with our partner, Crowdrise.
For Individual Colleague(s) or Employee(s)
If you would like to get started with a GoFundMe campaign as a collective organisation or company, we can help you withdraw the funds to your organisation’s bank account. This is easy to set up and the organisation's EIN will be used for tax reporting.
Afterwards, funds can be disbursed to each employee individually from the company’s account.
We simply ask that you clearly explain in your campaign story how the money will be withdrawn, distributed and ultimately allocated to the affected individuals. Click here to learn more about withdrawing as an organisation, and here to learn more about taxes.
If your company will be matching donations to your campaign, we recommend that you clearly state your match promise at the very top of your campaign’s Story. Explain that you will be matching X dollars donated by Y date. After Y date, your organisation can donate that amount back to the campaign, or outside of GoFundMe.
If you are on a laptop or desktop, make sure to bold this by highlighting the text and pressing "control" and "b".
If you are looking for options outside of individual fundraising, we can connect you with our charity branch at CrowdRise, where they can provide options for team fundraising and charity integration. Or, if you have multiple employees you would like to fundraise for and are interested in setting up multiple campaigns, please let us know, and we will try to come up with alternative options for your team.
Do not have the time or resources to create a campaign? Donate or share the Direct Impact Fund for Hurricane Harvey. The Direct Impact Fund is an independent, registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation working directly with GoFundMe to provide immediate and direct assistance to those affected by natural and manmade disasters. Donations to the Direct Impact Fund are tax-deductible.
