GoFundMe is the most popular personal fundraising site in the world. Over $3 Billion has been raised by our users for their personal causes - making GoFundMe a Top 200 Website in the USA based on traffic with monthly audience of over 100M people. GoFundMe is a brand that people trust - known for its ease-of-use, real results, 5-minute customer service response times, and the first and only fraud protection guarantee for social giving: the GoFundMe Guarantee.
