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.

Charity Pages

Charity Pages are a great starting point for you and your supporters. You can view information like the total amount raised, number of donations, and the number of fundraisers created to benefit your charity.

Fundraisers can be created by supporters to benefit your charity from this page. Donations can be made to your charity from here if there aren't any active fundraisers. 

All fundraisers created to benefit your charity and received donations can also be viewed from a charity page.

If you work for a charity, please view this article for steps on how to claim your Charity Page.

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 three ways:

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

Supporters can also create team fundraisers. To get started, supporters can visit our adding a team article.
