When your colleagues are in need, we have several ways for your company to support individual employees, set up donation matching or team fundraise with our partner, CrowdRise.
For Individual Colleagues or Employees
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We simply ask that you clearly explain in your campaign story how the money will be withdrawn, distributed and ultimately allocated to the affected individuals.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 all 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 X date. After X date, your organisation can donate that amount to the campaign, or outside of GoFundMe.
If you are on a laptop/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 to a verified campaign directly benefiting those affected. If you cannot donate, share the link to the campaign hub, or specific campaign, to increase the number of people who might support those affected.
