Choosing a tip amount

When making a donation, you have the option of leaving a tip for GoFundMe, but leaving a tip is certainly not mandatory, and it can be changed to any amount of your choice.

By leaving a voluntary tip, you’re helping us to do more good in the world. Your generosity helps us provide a safe and secure experience for you and others in our community. 

If you would like to learn more about GoFundMe’s tips and fees model, check out this article.

How to choose your tip amount: 

  • Enter the amount you would like to donate to the fundraiser under "Enter your donation"
  • Click on the green dot and slide left or right to adjust your tip amount 
  • Your “total due today” will be the donation plus the amount you choose to tip


GoFundMe is happy to refund any unintentional tips. Simply fill out a refund request form here, and our team will be in touch.
