Choosing a tip amount

Donors have the option to leave a voluntary contribution or "tip" for GoFundMe. Leaving a voluntary contribution is definitely not compulsory, and it can be changed to any amount, including 0.

By leaving a voluntary contribution, you’re helping us do more good in the world. Your generosity helps us provide a safe and secure experience for you and others in our community. 

If you’d like to learn more about GoFundMe’s voluntary contributions and fees model, check out this article.

How to choose your tip amount: 

  1. Enter the amount you’d like to donate to the fundraiser under "Enter your donation"
  2. Click on the green dot and slide left or right to adjust your tip amount. Or, you can click 'Enter custom tip' to type the amount you’d like to tip. 

Your total due today will be the donation plus the amount you choose to leave as a voluntary contribution


GoFundMe is happy to refund any unintentional tips. Simply fill in a refund request form, and our team will be in touch.
