When you make a donation anonymous, this means that your name will not be visible to the public on the campaign page.
For security reasons, you cannot make an entirely anonymous donation:
- The organiser and beneficiary will always be able to see your name
- You are required to enter the name on the credit card when making a donation. Using a name different to the one on the credit card you’re donating with may result in your donation being refunded.

How to make your donation anonymous after donating:
- Find the donation receipt in your email; if you’re having trouble finding it, try searching "Thank you for your donation to" in your inbox.
- Scroll down to the bottom of the receipt, under "Increase your impact"
- Select the green, underlined "Add a comment" which will bring you to your GoFundMe account.
