What happened to my GoFundMe account?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

I understand that you’re concerned about the status of your GoFundMe account. In 2021, GoFundMe made the decision to close down GoFundMe Charity, formerly known as CrowdRise. This move was aimed at consolidating personal and charity fundraising efforts under the GoFundMe.com platform.

As a result of this decision, all GoFundMe Charity accounts and campaigns will be removed and inaccessible starting from the morning of January 3rd, 2022. This means that any campaigns or funds you had on your GoFundMe Charity account will no longer be available.

I realize that this may be disappointing or frustrating for those who were using GoFundMe Charity for their fundraising efforts. It’s understandable to feel a sense of loss if you had invested time and effort into building your campaign on that platform.

It’s important to note that GoFundMe has been providing ample time for users to transition their campaigns and funds from GoFundMe Charity to GoFundMe.com. They have been actively reaching out to users via email and providing guidance on how to make this transition smoothly.

If you haven’t already done so, I recommend checking your email inbox, including spam or promotional folders, for any communication from GoFundMe regarding the closure of GoFundMe Charity. They should have provided instructions on how to migrate your campaign and funds to the GoFundMe.com platform.

In case you have missed any emails or need further assistance, I suggest contacting GoFundMe directly. They have a dedicated support team that can provide personalized guidance and support throughout this transition process. They will be able to answer any specific questions you may have about your GoFundMe Charity account and provide further assistance.

While this transition may initially seem inconvenient, it’s important to remember that GoFundMe is working towards streamlining their fundraising efforts and providing a more unified platform for users. By consolidating personal and charity fundraising under GoFundMe.com, they aim to create a more seamless experience for all fundraisers.

I understand that change can be difficult, especially when it affects something as personal as a fundraising campaign. However, it’s important to adapt and embrace these changes to ensure continued success in your fundraising efforts. If you approach this transition with an open mind and utilize the resources provided by GoFundMe, you can still achieve your fundraising goals on the GoFundMe.com platform.

GoFundMe Charity has been closed down, and all accounts and campaigns will be inaccessible starting January 3rd, 2022. It’s essential to review any communication from GoFundMe regarding this closure and reach out to their support team for further assistance. While this change may disrupt your fundraising efforts initially, embracing the transition to GoFundMe.com will allow you to continue your fundraising journey successfully.
