GoFundMe fundraisers must be tied to a single individual, and they must have their full name appear on the fundraiser. The organizer of the GoFundMe fundraiser cannot be anonymous; we have this policy in place to promote transparency.
This also helps your donors feel more comfortable contributing by showing them who is collecting the funds, and gives them a point of contact in case they have any questions.
Please also note that if your account is connected to a Facebook profile, you won't be able to edit your name without disconnecting your Facebook profile first.
To change your name:
- Sign in to GoFundMe here
- Select the three lines at the top of your screen (if you're on the GoFundMe app, tap your initials in the top right corner instead)
- Select "Account settings" from the drop-down menu
- Change your name and click "Save changes" at the bottom of the screen
