How do I change or hide my name?

First, please note that GoFundMe campaigns must be tied to a single individual, and they must have their full name appear on the campaign. GoFundMe campaigns cannot be used anonymously; we have this policy in place to prevent fraud and promote transparency.

This also helps your donors feel more comfortable contributing by showing them who is collecting the funds, and gives them a point of contact in case they have any questions. 


Please also note that if your account is connected to a Facebook profile, you will not be able to edit your name without disconnecting your Facebook profile first. Or, you can update your name on Facebook, then follow these steps to update the name on GoFundMe. 


To change your name from a desktop or laptop computer, please:

  1. Sign in to your GoFundMe account at
  2. Click on your name at the top-right of the screen.
  3. Click on 'Account Settings'.
  4. Edit your name and click on 'Save Settings' at the bottom of the screen.
