Do you believe that people will and should compassionately support one another to create a better world?  Well, we do!

GoFundMe is the most popular social fundraising site in the world. Over $5 Billion has been raised by our users for their personal causes, making GoFundMe a Top 200 Website in the USA based on traffic, with a monthly audience of over 100M people. GoFundMe is a brand that people trust, known for its ease-of-use, real results, rapid customer service response times, and the first and only fraud protection guarantee for social giving: the GoFundMe Guarantee.
