Donating anonymously

Making a donation anonymous means your name won’t be visible to the public on the fundraiser page. 

For security reasons, you can’t make an entirely anonymous donation, and the organizer and beneficiary will always be able to see your name.

You’re required to enter the name on the credit card when making a donation, but you can select to make it publicly anonymous.  Using a name other than what's on the credit card you’re donating with may result in your donation being refunded or rejected.

Please note, you’ll only be able to edit your donation within 14 days of the donation being made. If you’d like to make your donation anonymous after 14 days, please contact our team for help.
