By default, all GoFundMe campaigns are set up for an individual to withdraw the funds. For accounts in the US or Canada, we may be able to help you withdraw your funds on behalf of an organization in certain situations. In order to do this, you must be directly affiliated with the organization and be in contact with someone who is listed as a signer on the organization's bank account.
To ensure that this option will work for you, please contact our team prior to accepting donations so we can make sure you are set up correctly. When contacting our team, please share the following:
- Your organization's name and Tax ID
- How you are affiliated with the organization
- The name of the person who is authorized to make withdrawals for the organization
- Any specifications or requirements for how the organization needs to receive the funds
If you started a campaign for a charity (such as the Red Cross) you’d like to support but don’t work for, or if you raised donations to pay a third party such as a veterinarian's office or funeral home - You must withdraw the money yourself.
This way you can proceed with withdrawing the donations to your own bank account and delivering them to the organization outside of GoFundMe.
If you have not yet raised funds or created your campaign, you also have the option of setting up a Certified Charity campaign with our partner, PayPal Giving Fund. With this campaign type, all funds are processed by PayPal Giving Fund directly, and then delivered to the designated charity on a monthly basis. You can read more about this here:
