How to create a GoFundMe Widget for your Charity Fundraiser

You can embed a styled widget that links to your GoFundMe fundraiser from your website. This can be a great resource to add to your website that can increase traffic to your fundraiser.

How do I find the GoFundMe Widget to add to my website?

Follow these steps:

  1. Visit your fundraiser page (not your dashboard, but the public fundraiser page)
  2. Click "Share" located above the "Donate Now" button
  3. Click "Embed HTML"
  4. Click one of the widget size options for your website
  5. Click "Copy HTML code"
  6. Paste the code into the editor of your blog or website

Notes

Social Media: the widget isn’t meant to be put on Facebook or Twitter and most social media sites and comment boxes don’t allow HTML embedding like this. Instead, you can just paste your fundraiser URL there. 

WordPress: if you’re using the WordPress platform, the widget will only work if you are subscribed to their Business Plan. WordPress restricts the use of some HTML tags on their Free, Personal and Premium Plans for security purposes. You can read more about WordPress code here.
