GoFundMe has been outstanding with the fundraisers I’ve been involved in. They have a great website that keeps you in the loop with the fund after you sign up.

I have used gofundme a number of times over the years for worthwhile Causes and People. It has now become obvious that gofundme is a Political Organization. When they succumbed to Political Pressure to shut down disbursement of donated funds, then tried to steal them to give to their own cherrypicked 'charities or causes'; that was it for me. I will never use that service ever again.

I was paying to an event in Canada and the fund was shut down because of Media coverage. George Floyd and BLM was not closed down and there was burning and death in the streets. I feel this was a political move and politics should not be involved with charity funds. GFM is only an conduit to get funds out. NOT to end funds because they disagree with them. I will never use this platform again. There are plenty others to choose from.

GoFundMe is a horrible business that just stole $10 million from the Canadian Truckers account. Not only will GoFundMe NOT give the money to the trucker's organization, they also REFUSE to give it back to the donors. Instead, they have decided to give it to organizations of THEIR CHOICE. Guess ehat Gofundme? We did donated the money to YOU!!!! You are theifs!!!!!! GIVE BACK THE MONEY!

Why is responding to emails such a problem for this platform? This is not some game app but a platform for people in dire needs to get help and yet gofundme simply either does not respond or responds with totally irrelevant, off topic replies, mind you takes 2-3 days just to get one if you get one. I am unable to log in, no error message of any kind, screen simply fades away as if logging in and stays this way forever. Have sent 3 emails asking for assistance or what to do with no response at all. So what am i suppose to do?

I have used this site to get donations for three or four different reasons. I do exactly what is recommended to get donations started and to get to my goal. But not one of these gofundme fundraisers that I started has ever received a donation, not even a penny. And my fundraisers are about important things that are not stupid at all. But in my opinion, people that do stupid things are getting the money and absolutely way more than they asked for. This isn't a Fundraiser site of importance. It is a site for doing stupid crap and getting paid for doing the stupid crap. A very huge difference

GoFundMe is not a good way to try to raise money. Unless you personally know rich people, no one will help you. And the people who do donate to GoFundMe accounts only donate to horrible causes like abortions instead of people who desperately need money because they are struggling financially to make ends meet.

Donor rebattled his donation as i contact go fund me i got an email stating a lot of donors don't realize the draft it does not say go fund me.

What started off as a honeymoon fundraiser for my mother has now turned into a major loss in personal finance. My account was suspended and all funds frozen. After weeks of jumping through hoops and running in circles, I get an email saying donations will be reimbursed within 10days. A month later and I get an email saying my funds have now been locked with National Treasury and I will need to apply for a liscense to access account. HUH? No response except the spam link to national treasure website. An impressively unhelpful platform.

I will never use the gofunme platform again...it looks like I will never be able to make any withdrawals from my donors so now I love issues going to the doctor's; thank you GoFundMe for being a complete waste of time and effort.

Made a donation using my credit card to help Irma victims. Very next morning I was informed of the fraudulent use of my credit card that I had given to GoFundMe, to buy $243 of food from Panda express located only 4.1 miles from the GoFundMe offices. Coincidence possibly but I think they have a dishonest employee and I will not be taken in again.

Only really useful if one is a social media butterfly, otherwise those who are not are SOL. Kind of sad that people can raise money to pay for their unicorn's pet bill but those who are taking care of two dying parents, trying to pay over 200k in student loans, all while on disability and raising a young child cannot get any assistance from gofundme type of companies. Don't bother responding.

I have never seen a business or organization with no phone number to call. The email response is so generic and I can't reach anyone to help.

Hello Mr. Elshaarawi,

I can confirm that our Trust and Safety team has been working in conjunction with our payment partner to understand why these actions were taken on the donations you raised. I do see that you have two separate campaigns on GoFundMe, one that is raising funds that will be sent directly to a charity, and then another that you set up that was a personal fundraiser. I can assure you that donations to your charity campaign have not been affected here -

I have asked our Trust and Safety team to follow up with you to clarify how we can best continue with the second personal campaign you set up should you wish to raise funds on two separate campaigns.

All the best,
Rudolph

GoFundMe is a scam. We're a PTA, I'm the treasurer, and we have a simple campaign. They're happy to take people's money but it's nearly impossible to get the funds out, and there is no help if you're stuck. A teacher opened the account to help out, then PTA took it over. Both he and I are locked out getting any funds, we keep getting the same email over and over - add more info. We've added info everywhere - still nothing and no help from GoFundMe. This company is a scam. Use anyone else.

Hi Cindy,

After reviewing your account, it looks like you had a conversation with our Community Management. They needed to verify some information for security purposes because you were not mentioned in the campaign itself, but you were withdrawing the funds. It looks like after providing the requested documentation, our team was able to verify your identity and clear you to withdraw the funds. We can confirm that at that point you were able to continue to withdraw all the funds that were raised on behalf of the PTA.

Gofundme sucks 1. Their system is moronic. There is a "start a new campaign" link but it just takes me to my already started and over campaigns. There's no other option to make a new one. 2. In both dolphin and chrome browser (android lolipop) the gofundme menu malfunctions, it either won't open or flickers open and closes up again. 3. There's no way to change your wepay email. And it's been YEARS stuck at this level of stupidity.

Go Fund Me Double billed my credit card for my donation. My attempt to get this corrected involved contacting the credit card processor, We Pay, as it was there error. They redirected me to Go Fund Me, who promised to resolve the issue with We Pay. Two days later, I get a frantic Email from the person whose campaign I supported informing me that they are refunding my donation to her when it was supposed to be that they would refund the extra charge to me. They are charging her service fees to boot and this transaction. Customer service is friendly but entirely ineffective. I suspect fraud.

I tried to help my brother who has been wrongly convicted, and there was a lot of crookedness with his case. Our family was ripped off from a couple attorneys, and my brother was not represented correctly. He has just paid another attorney to appeal his case, and I was trying to help him raise money for his attorney fees through go fund me, they allowed me to start the campaign, but then canceled it on me. I am very dissatisfied with go fund me service, and will look to other crowdfunding sites, before I ever decide to use go fund me in the future again.

We cannot withdraw our money and was never made aware that we would also be subject to WePays percentages to be removed from the donations as well as GoFundMe's percentage. 5% plus an additional 2.9% and 30 cents for every donation.
