Features for Charities

GoFundMe makes it easier for our community of donors and fundraisers to discover and support their favorite charities, while allowing charities to seamlessly connect with GoFundMe’s vast audience.

To do this, we offer easy to use features for charities to utilize in their fundraising efforts.


Fundraisers are an easy way to raise funds for charity and the causes you, and others, are most passionate about. Donors from all over the world can securely donate using any major credit or debit card, or PayPal.

Charity-organized fundraisers 

Charity-organized fundraisers are an easy way for charity employees to fundraise, whether it be a general fund for your organization, or for a special event or purpose. 

Please view more information about claiming your charity on GoFundMe in this article.

Supporter-organized fundraisers 

Anybody can start a fundraiser for a charity, and funds will automatically be delivered to your charity via PayPal Giving Fund. 

Supporters can start charity fundraisers in two ways:

  1. Automatically, when setting up a GoFundMe account.
  2. By visiting our charity fundraising page. (Available in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada.) 

Supporters can also create team fundraisers. Team fundraising is a great way to engage friends and family to support fundraising efforts. 

To get started, supporters can visit our adding a team article.
