Properly setting up your withdrawals can take some time. It is important to plan ahead and get this process started as soon as possible to avoid any issues.
If you've set up your withdrawals with Stripe, please click here to read about withdrawal deadlines for your account.
For all other users, you must make your first withdrawal within 30 days of receiving your first donation or your GoFundMe will stop accepting new donations. Depending on your country and payment processor, your donations may also be automatically refunded if your withdrawals are not set up within 90 days of receiving your first donation.
This is because our payment partners are online payment processors only, and are not allowed to act as a bank by holding on to your funds for long periods of time.
You can arrange to have your funds sent to you via bank transfer, which will arrive in 2 to 5 business days from the time they are sent. Withdrawals will not affect your GoFundMe or stop donations. Your page will still show the total amount donated and new donations will continue to be accepted.
If you are not sure which payment partner you are set up with, or you need help setting up withdrawals, please contact our team using the button below so we can help!
