Changing the bank account used for transfers

You can change the bank account on file for an active fundraiser at any time. You can edit the bank details using Instant Verification or Manual Entry.

Editing the bank information will affect all fundraisers in your GoFundMe account. If you'd like for funds on different fundraisers to go to different accounts, you'll need to add a beneficiary.

To edit bank details using Instant Verification:

  1. Select the fundraiser you'd like to update bank information on, and then click "Bank transfers"
  2. Select your bank under the "Linked accounts" section, and you'll be brought to our payment partner's secure information portal
  3. Under Bank Details, select the bank currently on file, and then choose "Delete" from the drop-down menu
  4. Click under Bank Details again to add new information, then select "Instant Verification" and then "Next"
  5. Either choose your bank from the list or search for your bank in the search bar
  6. Continue to follow prompts to sign into your online banking portal and select the account you'd like to add
  7. Once you've selected the desired account, you can return to GoFundMe

  4. Under Bank Details, select the bank currently on file, then choose "View details"
  5. Select "Edit" in the bottom, right corner and then choose "Manual Entry"
