How does a non-profit get on your 'Certified Charity' list?

GoFundMe Certified Charity campaigns are powered by our charity partner, PayPal Giving Fund, and are only available for US nonprofits with 501(c)(3) status. You can find out more about PayPal Giving Fund here


To see if your charity is already listed in our database, please visit our charity list, and search for by the EIN or charity name. This list includes charities that have either registered with PayPal Giving Fund or that are listed in the Guidestar nonprofit database.  


If your charity is already in our system, then you can click the 'Select Charity' option to start your campaign. Please note that in order to ultimately receive the funds, the charity will also need to be enrolled with PayPal Giving FundIf the charity is not yet listed on GoFundMe, a financial administrator for the organization can add the charity to our list by completing that same enrollment process with PayPal Giving Fund, which is outlined here.  


If the organization isn’t a 501(c)(3) non profit in the US, you can always start a Personal Campaign and give the funds to the charity outside of GoFundMe.
