How to add your charity to the GoFundMe database

Please visit the applicable link below to see if your charity is already listed in our database and search by the tax ID or charity name. The search results include charities that have already registered with PayPal Giving Fund.

  1. Create a PayPal account or make sure that your existing PayPal account is upgraded to a business account here.
  2. Once you've set up your PayPal Business account, you'll need to confirm that your PayPal account belongs to a charity. Becoming a confirmed charity with PayPal also qualifies you for PayPal's special discounted charity rate. You can confirm your charity's status by visiting this link: (After you submit, PayPal will review your documents and reply by email within five working days.)

After you've received an email verifying that your charity status has been confirmed with PayPal, your charity will be reviewed for enrolment with PayPal Giving Fund. If you are eligible, you will receive an additional email within approximately 2 working days. This email will confirm your successful enrolment with PayPal Giving Fund UK.

Your charity will appear in our database a day or two after the enrolment is complete.
