Yes, you are welcome to raise funds for almost anyone in any country! Keep in mind that if they are in a country where we don’t operate just yet, then you will be personally responsible for delivering the funds. It’s important that you outline a transparent withdrawal plan on your story.
Along with that, GoFundMe complies with all U.S. laws, including those set forth by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, US Department of the Treasury (OFAC). This means that in some rare cases, US sanctions will prohibit us from supporting a campaign for specific countries.
If this affects your campaign, you can apply for a license from OFAC here. Once that is done, our team will assist with the review of your account.
