All funds raised on a charity fundraiser will be sent to our payment partner, PayPal Giving Fund, who will process and deliver the funds directly to the charity. As the fundraiser organizer, you will not be withdrawing the money directly on GoFundMe.
There is no withdraw button on charity fundraisers, and you are currently not notified of donation payouts on GoFundMe.
The delivery of funds depends on if the charity is enrolled with PayPal Giving Fund.
I do not work for the charity
If you do not work for the charity connected to your fundraiser, you don’t need to do anything else to make sure they get the money you’ve raised. PayPal Giving Fund will handle the delivery of funds to the benefiting charity, either by mailing a check or depositing it in their PayPal account.
If you would like to know more, the quickest way to find out is if you made a donation to your fundraiser. Click the Track your donation link in your donation receipt email to see whether your donation has been granted to the charity you intended to benefit. You can also enter the Transaction ID from your donation receipt into our donation tracker.
