Ratings and Reviews
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.

Who are you to decide if a charity or a movement people believe in is acceptable or not? Thieves who claim they will give other people’s money to “approved” charity of their choosing? What an absolute narcissistic control move. Firstly, it is not your money, it is the money of the donors and the supporters who are wishing for good things, offering support, hope, charity and unity, all for something they believe in. Secondly, you don’t get to decide for other people what they should believe in. Not your money! And you are not the arbiters of other people’s beliefs! Shame on you for masquerading as means of connecting people and providing support access to charities and peaceful movements. A sham! You ought to be ashamed of yourselves, crooks, and cronies! What kind of degenerate steals money from the donation box only to turn around and suggest giving it to someone or something else? Those donations should only be given to the intended parties, end of discussion. Just outright dishonest, and false at your very core. I think this would also count as a clear violation of the section of the consumer protection act that highlights what can be considered fraud, based on the contractual expectations between the consumer, and the service provider. If you donated money that was then redirected to a different organization without your clear consent, then there are plenty of grounds here for FRAUD CLAIMS!
