Nextdoor is an online platform that builds community among neighbors, and it’s a great way to share your fundraiser. By sharing on Nextdoor, you’ll be able to reach people that aren’t in your direct circle of family or friends.
How to share your fundraiser on Nextdoor
- Select “share” from your fundraiser’s dashboard
- Select “Nextdoor” from the available options (not available on the mobile app)
- You will be asked to log in or sign up with Nextdoor to continue the process
If you do not have a Next door account, you will be asked to create a new one. To sign up, you’ll share your home address and phone number with Nextdoor.
Note: This information is shared only with Nextdoor and will not be included on your fundraiser.
- Write a post introducing your fundraiser and need
- Post to your neighbors and to any of your relevant groups
- After posting, you will be returned to your GoFundMe dashboard
Your post should include a brief explanation of what you’re raising funds for, and how they’ll be used. Make sure to let people know you’d appreciate it if they could also share your fundraiser, in addition to donating.
Remember, personal fundraising is allowed on Nextdoor, but spam is not. Please be respectful of the platform and avoid repeatedly posting the same fundraiser or multiple fundraisers. You can learn more in Nextdoor’s guidelines on overposting.
What to do if a fundraiser looks suspicious or fraudulent
GoFundMe is dedicated to empowering people to help others, while making sure our platform is safe and secure. Fraud on GoFundMe is rare, and if someone creates a fundraiser with the intention to mislead donors, our team takes swift action.
If a GoFundMe campaign is removed for any reason, you may still be able to view the post on Nextdoor, but the fundraiser will no longer actively accept donations.
