Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. The GoFundMe Community is a space where people can come together to share tips, questions, ideas, experiences, and advice.
Here’s some tips on getting the most out of the Community:
Create a connection with other organizers: The members in this community are people raising money just like you. Root someone on by liking their post, or comment on a challenge someone is facing to show your support.
Swap tips and fundraising wins: What types of things worked for your fundraiser? Whatever it is, share what you tried with the group by creating a discussion. Even if it's a small win, you never know what piece of advice could help another member with their effort.
Answer questions and provide feedback: Check out new posts in the discussions feed to lend a hand.
Fill out your profile: Help community members get to know you by uploading an image and adding the link to your fundraiser to your profile.
Please note: posts asking for donations or shares will be removed. Sharing your GoFundMe link is only allowed in your profile, or when asking for feedback about your fundraiser. Check out our Community Guidelines for more info.
How to use the platform:
Email notifications and other settings
Want less (or more) email notifications? Want to add a profile picture? .
You can make these changes by clicking your profile picture in the top right corner, and navigating to “settings.”
Within your profile, you’ll find lots of other stuff like your recently earned badges and your activity on the Community forums. Just hit the “edit” to update your information.
Quote feature and tagging members
One way to reply to another member is by typing “@” and their username until it appears from the dropdown. Select their name to embed it into your response.
Another way to reply to members is to use the quote feature found at the bottom of a comment.
A quick way to learn from others is to use the search feature before creating a discussion. There’s a good chance that someone else had a similar question in the past and you may be able to find your answer easily by joining a previous conversation.
Want to give back? You can see who needs help by scrolling down the community homepage and checking the “Help Others” tab. Words of encouragement can go a long way here if you don’t feel comfortable sharing advice yet.
