Meet the GoFundMe Community Team
Allow us to introduce ourselves. We’re the community team, and we’re here to help you connect with each other and learn more about becoming a successful fundraiser. If you get confused or just need some expert advice from GoFundMe staff, we got you. We look forward to seeing you around the community!
Here’s a little bit about us.
Cris, Director of Community aka @Cris
Hi there, and welcome! I’m Cris and I’m based out of New York City. I help lead the Community team, though you might not see me day-to-day quite as often as my colleagues, Olivia and Jules. They’re much more awesome than me, I promise!
What I love about working at GoFundMe is that every day is a new challenge, always focused on how to best help people to help and support each other. When I’m not working, I can usually be found wandering around the city trying out new restaurants or playing in a park with my dog.
Olivia, Community Manager aka @Olivia
Hey there! I’m Olivia and I’m from sunny San Diego California.
I enjoy working for a company that aligns with my own mission and values - helping others and changing lives. That’s why I've been with GoFundme for 6+ years, and why I’m so excited to be a part of this community where fundraisers like yourself can help others, too. Outside of the community, I’m either traveling, geeking out at my local bookstore, or discovering new music on Spotify.
Juliet, Community Manager aka @Jules
What’s up everybody! My name is Jules and I’m also from San Diego.
Before I started working at GoFundMe, I was a fundraiser myself. A good friend of mine got sick suddenly, and wasn’t able to get the medicine she needed. With the help of the platform and our friend group, we were able to raise the money she needed to pay for her lifesaving treatment. This taught me the power of the crowd, and it motivated me to help others realize the same! When I’m not working, I spend my time with a couple of street cats I adopted and I go on long walks around my city.
