Strategies to help you meet your fundraising goal

Once you've shared your fundraiser and received donations from your close friends and family, it's good to start sharing and managing your fundraiser more strategically to reach your goal. With that in mind, we've put together some strategies to help you push on to your next milestone.

Use GoFundMe provided tools - Teams, updates, and thank yous

Did you know team fundraisers are 3x more likely to reach their goal? Or that fundraisers with updates tend to raise more funds? Try inviting three team members and post an update today.


Get creative with sharing and networking

Think outside of social media. Print QR code fliers, contact your local news outlet, or even work with your local gym or coffee shop to promote your fundraiser. 


Set up transfers as soon as possible

It can take 2 - 10 business days to receive your funds. Start the transfer process today so you’ll have time to verify your identity and bank account–especially if funds are needed urgently. 


Keep the momentum going by continuing to interact with your fundraiser and donors through updates and thank yous, and remember, we’re here to help. Review our Fundraiser Guides for more tips and strategies or use the Contact button to get in touch with our Customer Care team.
