GoFundMe automatically deducts a 5% fee from each donation you receive. Our payment processors will also deduct a fee, which will vary depending on your location and campaign type. Keep in mind that:
- There are no fees to sign up or create campaigns
- All fees are deducted in real-time from donations. Your donors are not charged fees.
- The rest is made available for you to withdraw. There are no extra fees to make a withdrawal.
- The Amount Raised that is displayed on your campaign will always reflect the total amount of donations made before fees are deducted.
