GoFundMe Guide: Accepting Donations

Your GoFundMe campaign is able to accept donations as soon as you finish customizing it & reach your GoFundMe Dashboard. Donors only need to visit your GoFundMe campaign and click or tap the 'Donate Now' button to start their payment!

 

What kinds of payments can I accept?

 

US & Canada: Your campaign can accept payments from any Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or AmEx credit card or debit card.

 

Australia & Europe:Your campaign can accept payments from any Visa, Mastercard, or AmEx credit card or debit card. 

 

UK: Your campaign can accept payments from any Visa, Mastercard, or AmEx credit card or debit card. *Maestro cards cannot be accepted.

 

GoFundMe campaigns cannot accept payments by check, phone, or any other payment processors (such as PayPal). If someone gives you cash or a check outside of GoFundMe, you can add it as an Offline Donation. Learn more.

 

How will I know when people donate?

  • Successful donations will immediately appear on your campaign
  • Your donors will get a GoFundMe receipt confirming their payment went through
  • You'll also receive an email notifying you that you received a donation
