Popular Reasons to Raise Money Online:

Medical: From ER visits to long-term care, medical expenses can wipe out savings accounts and leave behind debt that lasts for years. Online fundraising for medical expenses is a powerful tool that can help people conquer medical bankruptcy and focus on getting better. Countless people have found that using GoFundMe for medical expenses can help pay for prescriptions and doctors' appointments – as well as procedures not typically covered by insurance.

Animals: Your pet’s presence is woven into the fabric of your everyday life. That’s why when your pet goes missing, falls ill or needs an emergency operation, it can shake you up and leave you feeling anxious about the future.

Funerals/Memorials: When you’re grieving the loss of a loved one, you shouldn’t have to worry about how you’ll pay for a funeral. Fundraising for funeral expenses helps ease financial stress during this difficult time and allows you to focus on saying goodbye and honoring your loved one’s memory.

Great idea

I love the idea of go fund me. The idea that people who are in need can have someplace to ask those in a better position to help out is genius. For people who are looking to donate to something not someone and doesn’t know what or where to do it this is so amazing. My only wish is that there was some way to help get your “message” or “wish” or “fund” more out there and seen than just sharing. For people who don’t have easy access to people or many contacts on social media or real life it can be really difficult to get donations. For example mines been up for a few weeks and I only have two donations. I’m running out of time and thinking I’m going to have to sell literally everything I own. Otherwise this app has really helped so many people. I only wish it was easier to help those that haven’t made much money yet. All the main screens show the “highest donated” pages where they have met or surpassed their goal. What of those that still need money? That’s all I’m saying. Based on my experience.

Need help line!

I am very happy with my experience with GoFundMe. Honestly, the only reason I didn’t give you 5 stars is because of 1 single problem. That being the fact that there isn’t a way to call and speak to someone if you run into an issue. I had an issue with my password and got locked out for a little while. Of course there is the regular “forgot password”, but for some reason it just wouldn’t work for me causing me to become very frustrated to the point of just giving up for a week or so.

Thankfully, when I went back to try again, it worked just fine. HOWEVER, at that point, we had a difficult time setting up withdrawals and never really figured out why except the specifics bank was not one to choose from. Thankfully there was a way to do it manually by just putting in the bank account info. Then at that point, we were told it would take 2-5 business days to transfer the money, which I understand. However, if we had known that a little earlier, we could have done it before the bill we needed to pay came due.

Honestly, some of these problems may have been “user error”, but, if I had been able to speak to a person, they could have walked me through it and alleviate my anxiety. Other than these issues, we have been very pleased with the app and the responses received.

Life saver for Baby Fay’s heart surgery

If it wasn’t for GoFund me , I’m not sure what our family would be going thru right now. Medical Bills were just piling up in spite of medical insurance we were all at a loss of options. Feeling hopeless. It’s hard enough seeing my baby granddaughter just deteriorating in front of our eyes and her parents struggling. All doors quickly closing until a friend said I should do a GoFundMe account for them. I remember thinking, I don’t know anything about that or how to even go about it. She offered to help and said it was not hard to set up. I then started looking into it and it was a God send. Since that day the skies opened up now the family can focus on getting the help they need. We’re still a long way from the goal but working our way through it. It helps emotionally to have some sort of lifeline Within this difficult situation. Setting it up wasn’t hard and you are guided with step by step instructions. Thank you GoFundMe.
