About Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding is a very special kind of fundraising, one that really is all about neighbors helping neighbors. That's why we've dedicated a whole section to donations needed for causes that are highly focused, well deserved, and where time is often of the essence.

In our Crowdfunding section, you can join the college student who used a surprise windfall to kickstart a GoFundMe scholarship fund, giving back to the community that supported her family when they came to the U.S. as new refugees. Watch a mother's tearful thank-you to the crowdfunders who quickly donated to help get her family take their medically-fragile son cross country to get a life-saving heart operation. And meet the girl who took one small idea and used GoFundMe to spread kindness in her community and across the country, granting wishes that make life happier for thousands of senior citizens in nursing homes.

Each Crowdfunding story will connect you directly to fundraising efforts. In many cases, we'll continue to follow these stories as they evolve, so you can see how recipients are faring and see just how how your contribution made a difference!
