The steps outlined in this article are only for the organizer to follow. If you are the beneficiary, team member, or donor, please contact the organizer to add a donation received offline to the fundraiser.
If someone gives you a donation outside of GoFundMe or you would like to add your own donation to your fundraiser, you can add it as an offline donation, so it will count toward your goal. You won't be charged any fees for offline donations, since the money isn't processed through GoFundMe.
To add an offline donation from a desktop or mobile browser, please:
- Sign in to your account
- Once you are on the 'Manage' screen for your fundraiser, scroll down
- Select 'Donors'
- Next to the 'Search' bar, select the three vertical black dots
- Select 'Add offline donation' and enter the donation information
- Select 'Add donation' to save the information and add it to your fundraiser
To add an offline donation from the GoFundMe app:
- Open the GoFundMe app
- Click "My fundraisers" at the bottom and select your fundraiser.
- Go to the "Manage" section for your fundraiser
- Scroll down and click on "Donations"
- Select the plus sign (+) in the bottom right-hand corner
- Enter the donation information and click on "Save"
Once you complete the appropriate steps, your donor's name, donation amount, and comment will appear on your fundraiser. You can send a thank-you note to your offline donors only through the GoFundMe app. Learn more.
Note: Offline donations are not charged any fees and you won't be able to withdraw them later, since the funds are not being processed through GoFundMe. Only GoFundMe organizers can add offline donations to their fundraisers.
