GoFundMe is the #1 and most trusted leader in free online fundraising/crowdfunding. Since 2010, we have helped people in over 170 countries raise more than $5 billion. Start or manage fundraisers, engage with supporters, and discover important causes on the go with the GoFundMe app.
Popular Reasons to Fundraise:
Medical: From ER visits to long-term care, medical expenses can wipe out savings accounts and leave behind debt that lasts for years. Medical crowdfunding is a powerful tool that can help people conquer medical bankruptcy and focus on healing. Countless people have found that using GoFundMe for medical expenses can help pay for prescriptions and doctors visits—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 emergency surgery, it can shake your foundation and leave you feeling anxious about the future. Crowdfunding for pet expenses can ease financial burdens and allow you to get your pal the help they need, right when they need it.
Memorial: When you’re grieving the loss of a loved one, you shouldn’t have to worry about how you’ll pay for a funeral. Crowdfunding 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.
