How tax receipts work

Only donations made to GoFundMe charity fundraisers (available in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada), may 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 charitable organization, and distributed to the designated charity.


After a donation has been made to a certified charity fundraiser, PayPal Giving Fund will email the donor a donation receipt for each donation made.



Gift Aid for UK Charities

Donors are given the option for Gift Aid in the donation process. If your charity is eligible to receive Gift Aid, PayPal Giving Fund files for Gift Aid with Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HMRC) after delivering the original donation to the charity, and the Gift Aid money is typically available 15-45 days after the payout and added to the next scheduled payout. If a check is issued to a charity that isn't enrolled, the funds will be sent out in the same check as the payout for donations. 

If your charity is enrolled in PayPal Giving Fund, the charity can view all Gift Aid information in this report. There is no further action needed from you at this time, as Gift Aid will process automatically.
