GoFundMe certified charity campaigns are powered by our charity partner, PayPal Giving Fund, and are only available for US non-profit organisations with 501(c)(3) status and UK registered charities. You can find out more about PayPal Giving Fund here.
To see if your charity is already listed in our database, please visit our charity list and search by EIN or charity name. This list includes charities that have either registered with PayPal Giving Fund or are listed in the GuideStar nonprofit database, which contains publicly available data.
If the charity is already in our list, you can choose the "Select Charity" option to start your campaign. Please note that in order to receive the funds as quickly and securely as possible, we recommend that the charity enrol with PayPal Giving Fund. Delivery of funds to charities that are not enrolled may take longer.
If the charity is not yet listed on GoFundMe, a financial administrator for the organisation can add the charity to our list by completing that same enrolment process with PayPal Giving Fund, which is outlined here.
If the organisation isn’t an eligible US or UK charity, you can always start a personal campaign and give the funds to the charity outside of GoFundMe.
