Is My Donation Tax-Deductible?
Donations made to a personal GoFundMe campaign, rather than a charity campaign, are generally considered to be personal gifts and are not guaranteed to be tax-deductible. But, you can always check with a tax professional to be sure. You will not be issued a tax receipt from our company.
Only donations made to GoFundMe charity fundraisers (available in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada), are guaranteed to be tax-deductible and will receive tax receipts automatically from our charity partner, PayPal Giving Fund. Donations to these fundraisers are collected by PayPal Giving Fund, a non-profit organization, and distributed to the designated charity.
How Do I know I am donating to a Certified Charity Campaign?
When you visit the campaign page, the name of the charity will be located next to the name of the campaign organizer.
