We're excited to announce that GoFundMe has acquired YouCaring, and we are opening the door to YouCaring customers who would like to continue to raise money on GoFundMe.
As a member of the GoFundMe community, you will have access to GoFundMe’s best-in-class 24/7 customer support, Trust & Safety Team, mobile app and donor protection backed by the GoFundMe Guarantee. You can learn more about the benefits of using GoFundMe right here.
All YouCaring accounts and fundraisers have been closed as of 1 August 2018. As a result, all of the following have been disabled: access to YouCaring accounts and donor data, incoming donations to fundraisers and all fundraiser URLs.
Getting Started on GoFundMe
If you would like to continue raising money (and your country is supported on GoFundMe), we would love to have you join us! You can sign up on GoFundMe at any time, and you can even re-use the same content from YouCaring on GoFundMe.
It's also easy to add offline donations to your GoFundMe to show the money you have raised previously on YouCaring.
Getting Money Raised on YouCaring
The money you raised will always be accessible directly through the payment partner you selected and linked to your YouCaring fundraiser. Any ongoing withdrawals will continue uninterrupted.
If you used WePay and started withdrawing already, automatic withdrawals will continue according to the schedule you selected. If you haven’t started withdrawing yet, please use your YouCaring email address to log in to WePay directly at https://www.wepay.com/login
If you need to set a new WePay account password first, you can do so here: https://www.wepay.com/register/recover
Alternatively, if you used PayPal, you can log in to your PayPal account at any time to view the donations you received and transfer money to your bank account if you choose.
For beneficiaries of YouCaring fundraisers: If your organiser linked you directly to their campaign, you can withdraw the money directly through the payment processor’s website, which is usually WePay. The money will still be accessible in your WePay account even after the fundraiser has been closed.
