Claiming your charity page

This article explains the process of claiming your charity to access your donor and fundraiser data.

Please note: If you claimed a charity, but you are not authorized to claim the charity, or do not work for the charity, please contact our team so we can assist.

How to claim your charity account 

We recommend that you use your official charity email to sign up (eg. myname@mycharity.org), since it will allow us to verify your connection to the organization more quickly. 

  1. Click this link to sign up and then search for your charity by name or by EIN (US), BRN (CA), Charity number (UK), or ABN (AU) to sign up as a representative for your charity. If you do not see your organization, you need to get it added to our site.
  2. If you already have a personal GoFundMe account, you will need to sign up for a charity account using a different email address.
  3. Please click the verification link in the email we send you. After that, we will confirm your connection to your charity.
  4. We'll send you an email letting you know we have finished confirming your connection to your charity. You will have access to all account features, including access to your donor and transaction data.

Please note: There can only be one account with charity representative access per charity at this time.

Claiming your charity account is a separate process from receiving your donations and will not expedite a payout. If you are looking to receive your donations, please see this article.

If your supporter did not connect your organization's EIN (US), BRN (CA), Charity number (UK), or ABN (AU) in the fundraiser creation process, please note you'll have to use a different email address other than your charity account email to accept a beneficiary invite. Here is an article that goes over these steps.

Adding your charity to GoFundMe
