GoFundMe Charity to Shut Down

GoFundMe Charity, the fundraising-dedicated website launched in November 2019, is now scheduled to shut down on September 30, 2021, when it will merge with GoFundMe.com. The last day to start a new fundraising campaign on the platform is June 30, 2021.

Nonprofits have through December 31, 2021, to view and export their donor and fundraiser data and content such as campaign images and stories. Recurring gifts will be canceled after September 30, and campaigns won’t automatically transfer to GoFundMe.com. Organizations will need to recreate any ongoing fundraising campaigns to continue raising money on GoFundMe.com. Like the free pricing model on GoFundMe Charity, GoFundMe.com offers a 0% platform fee (plus a 2.9% transaction fee and $0.30 per donation), making it free for charities to start fundraisers.
