Two (or three, or four) heads are better than one! Team Fundraising isn’t just for sports teams or clubs; any GoFundMe organizer can feel empowered to call on their friends and family to help raise funds for their cause. Whether it’s a drive for your local food pantry or for a loved one in crisis, team fundraising can help provide the support you need.
For example, if you would like to start a memorial fundraiser for a loved one who has passed, but you want some help, including team members would allow you to divide responsibilities like posting updates and sending thank you’s. Perhaps more importantly, they can also help to support you emotionally as you navigate the best way to honor someone you care about.
Alternatively, if you are on a club or sports team that would like to raise funds together, a team fundraiser would be a great way to allow each member to track how many donations they've raised. Each person on your team can even personally thank any donors who contributed on their behalf.
