Transferring funds to a trust or unincorporated organization's account

If you'd like to transfer your funds to a Trust account or to an organization that hasn't been issued a registration number or tax ID, please review this article for help setting up transfers, then review the information below to understand what will be required. If you're being asked to upload documents and having trouble with the process, please use this secure form to send your documents to us.

Note: Accounts in Canada won't be able to transfer to an unincorporated organization and should instead transfer the funds to a personal bank account.

Unincorporated organization or club

  • If your organization isn't connected to a registration number, you can enter 0’s (zeroes) when prompted for your tax ID/registration number.
  • You must submit a registration document (or a club charter confirming the establishment) for the organization, signed and dated within the past year by an entered decision-maker. 
  • Upload a valid, not expired government-issued photo ID belonging to added decision-makers, as well as the organization’s bank statement

Trust account

  • Provide the full name of the trust account when setting up transfers
  • Be (or be in contact with) a trustee of the account
  • Know if the trust has a tax ID or if it’s connected to an individual’s name

Our payment processor may require the following for a Trust account:

  • The name, email address, and the front and back images of the valid, not expired government-issued ID for the individual setting up transfers.
  • If the Trust is connected to a tax ID, you'll need to enter the tax ID and provide a copy of its governmental registration.
  • If the Trust is not connected to a tax ID, you'll need to enter the individual's national identification number.
  • A picture of the bank statement for the Trust account showing all of the following information:
    • The bank logo, or bank letterhead (must be issued by the bank)
    • The Trust’s name as the account holder
    • The bank account number entered in your GoFundMe account
    • Your sort code (if in the UK)

Please also note the following:

  • If you don’t have a bank statement available, you can also upload a photo of a voided check that shows the entire check from edge to edge and meets the above requirements.
  • If you bank online, screenshots of your online account likely won't be accepted, but you should still be able to download a statement from your online account.
  • The photo must be clear and display all four corners of the document.
  • The file size must be at least 100 KB but no larger than 2 MB.
  • The statement must be no older than 30 days.
  • The file type must be a JPG or JPEG.
