Changing Your Email Address

Your GoFundMe account must be connected to an email address that you actively use and can reply to emails from. An email can only be connected to one GoFundMe account. If you get an error that says, "This email is already in use. Please use a different email address", try signing in to GoFundMe using the email you're attempting to change the account to.

How to change your email

  1. Select the fundraiser you want to manage
  2. Select "Account Settings" from the drop-down menu
  3. Enter your new email address into the Email box and select "Save Changes"
  4. You will be prompted to send a verification code to your phone so please select, "Send Code" and then enter the 5-digit code contained within the text message.
  5. After verifying your phone number, a verification email will be sent to your new email; click the "Confirm Email" button to officially change the email address
