I don’t know if I should click 'Myself' or 'Someone Else' (US Only)

You’ll want to click myself if….


  • The money is actually for you
  • The money is for someone under the age of 18 and you’re their parent or guardian
  • You’re raising money for a charity/organization that you’re not directly affiliated with (Raising donations for the Red Cross? Choose ‘Myself’ and deliver it to the organization outside of GoFundMe)
  • Your beneficiary is unable to set up withdrawals themselves, or would prefer you to handle it for them


Choose ‘Someone Else’ if…


  • Your donations are for a friend/family member and they want to handle the money directly
  • You’re raising money for an organization you work for, but would rather have an accountant/financial admin handle the withdrawals
