We're excited to announce that GoFundMe has acquired YouCaring, and we're opening the door to YouCaring customers who would like to continue to raise money on GoFundMe.
As a member of the GoFundMe community, you will have access to GoFundMe’s best-in-class 24/7 customer support, Trust & Safety Team, mobile app, and donor protection backed by the GoFundMe Guarantee. You can learn more about the benefits of using GoFundMe right here.
Please note that GoFundMe supports fundraisers for citizens of the following countries only (and excluding US territories), and all YouCaring fundraisers not located in these countries were closed on June 30, 2018:
All remaining YouCaring fundraisers that are located in the above countries will be closed on July 31, 2018. If you have an active YouCaring fundraiser, this means that incoming donations to your existing fundraisers and access to your YouCaring account will be disabled on that date at 11:59PM PDT.
Getting Started on GoFundMe
If you'd like to continue raising money (and your country is supported on GoFundMe), we'd love to have you join us! You can sign up on GoFundMe at any time, and if you do this before your YouCaring fundraiser closes, you can even copy and paste the same content on your GoFundMe campaign.
It's also easy to add offline donations to your GoFundMe to reflect the money you've raised previously on YouCaring or in person.
Getting Money Raised on YouCaring
The money you raised will always be accessible directly through the payment partner you selected and linked to your YouCaring fundraiser.
If you used WePay and started withdrawing already, automatic withdrawals will continue according to the schedule you selected. If you haven’t started withdrawing yet, please use your YouCaring email address to log into WePay directly at https://www.wepay.com/login
If you need to set a new WePay account password first, you can do so here: https://www.wepay.com/register/recover
Alternatively, if you used PayPal, you can log into your PayPal account at any time to view the donations you received and transfer money to your bank account if you choose.
For beneficiaries of YouCaring fundraisers: If your organizer linked you directly to their campaign, you can withdraw the money directly through the payment processor’s website, which is usually WePay. The money will still be accessible in your WePay account even after the fundraiser has been closed.
