Changing your email

Your GoFundMe account must be connected to an email address you actively use and can reply to emails from. An email can only be connected to one GoFundMe account. If you get an error saying, "This email is already in use. Please use a different email address.", try signing into GoFundMe using the email you're attempting to change the account to.

How to change your email

  1. Select "Account settings" from the drop-down menu in the top, right corner
  2. Enter your new email address in the Email box and select “Save Changes”
  3. If you haven’t verified your phone number recently, you’ll be prompted to do so (Please review this article if you need to change your phone number.)
  4. A verification email will be sent to your new email; click the button that says “Verify Email” to officially change the email address

Important: Updating your email to someone else's email address may cause trouble with your account. If you want to add a beneficiary to your fundraiser so they can receive the funds, please click here for more information on how to do so.

If you'd like to transfer your entire account to someone else so they can manage the fundraiser and withdraw the funds, click the "Get Help" button below for assistance.
