I received a message on a social media platform this morning about my fundraiser and I was told that they would cover the whole amount, but I have to cover the transfer fee. Is this normal when dealing with the larger amounts like this or is this person just trying to scam me? And another guy this morning messaged me and said to cut my hair, the more the higher the donation. Or shave one side of my head or undershave the back of my head or whatever that is called. I told him I will see about that. I think its just to get me to do something ridiculous and then nothing. But is that normal too?

I received a notice on my fundraiser that there was an issue. I never received an email and reached out via the form on the website. I received an email from GoFundMe stating that they would be in touch soon. That was 3 days ago and still nothing. After reading through things, it appears that I need to send in some documents. I also needed to change my name as it was not my legal name. When I go to the ‘withdraw’ section, it says that an email has been sent to confirm. I did not receive the email and have tried to have it resent several times, but still nothing. I just need to know how to upload these documents so I can get my funds.
Hi I'm new to GoFundMe. I just made one to help my dad use my cord blood for stem cell regeneration as I'm pregnant and due to be induced in 3 weeks. I finished my fundraiser but it's still in drafts . Does that mean it's under review? I don't have time to waste I need $3,500 for the banking alone and I just want to start sharing it. Any advice/answers would be appreciated

Crowdfunding is often more successful when you have social media, but it’s certainly still possible. A lot of people find success by using these methods of sharing instead. Text messagesMany people find success by sending a text message to each of their contacts. You can make this easier on yourself by creating a template that you can copy and paste into each message. Phone callsThis is a great way to connect with friends and family who might not be local. Before reaching out, jot down the main points you want to get across to avoid missing important information during the call. For example, you’ll want to tell them what you’re fundraising for and why it’s important to you. EmailsEmails are another great opportunity to share your fundraiser with a personal touch. Try getting creative with the subject line to draw people’s attention. For an idea of what to say, check out this fundraising email template.

Hi, I've got a fundraiser going and we are trying to raise money for surgery for an animal.We have until roughly the 10th December to raise enough funds for the operation so wanted to leave the gofundme up until this date, however I have received an email this morning saying the funds are being transferred to me and are on their way.How do I stop this? I don't want to withdraw the money yet, there isn't enough in there to cover the operation and I really need to keep fundraising for a few more weeks.Thanks,Fiona

Hi all! We noticed some common questions about how fundraising works on GoFundMe. So we gathered a few to chat about. Let’s dive in. How does crowdfunding work?Crowdfunding is when donors give money to help a fundraiser reach its goal. But here’s the important part– you need to share your fundraiser in order for it to work. How do I get my fundraiser noticed?The most common way to get the word out about your GoFundMe is usually by sharing it on social media. Here’s a few easy tips that can go a long way: – Do personal outreaches first It can be really helpful to spend some time and reach out to your close contacts first before sharing it with other people. Having even one or two donations before posting to social media helps build trust and shows momentum.– Share more than just your link. When you do share on social media sites, remember to add context! Just sharing your link without telling people anything about it tends to not be as successful. Rather than just saying “please help”,
So go fund me used to be able to have platforms where I can pay for them to go post it all over. I can't find anything like that. I posted my friends Instagram and Twitter but that's all I know. For some reason my misunderstanding was that this page would help get me to some other pages. And I posted it in groups on my Facebook.
