Maren a level 7 gymnast in my daughters gymnastic's club suddenly and tragically lost her father while they were vacationing in Hawaii. Having her life turned upside down and losing the very sport that fuels her fire seemed like too big a burden to carry so being able to quickly set up a GoFundMe campaign was fantastic. Having the ability to come together as a gymnastics community and help pay for her to continue her club sport until her mom navigates the new normal of their lives was a huge blessing! We are often at a loss as to how to help someone after such a huge and devastating loss and GoFundMe made it easy for us. It's so easy to share that many people that didn't even know Maren have donated! I received funds from the account and transferred them right to her account at the gym. Super easy! We can't fix the tragedy but we can bless the family by easing some of the financial burden while keeping a bright light in her life at the gym. I highly recommend using GoFundMe. The people donating felt very comfortable using the site. I had never set up a GoFundMe campaign prior to this and found it to be very user-friendly.

We were confident this was the right platform to go with. What drew us to GoFundMe was that it was a good flexible site where we could get up quickly and reach out to a broad audience. There were s associated. We got online and the response has been tremendous. The outpouring from friends, family and people we had never and probably will never meet was very uplifting.

The Customer Happiness team at GoFundMe is quick to supply its customers with helpful solutions and answers to any questions I have had. GoFundMe is a simple, elegant and easy-to-use crowdfunding platform for my field entomology documentary project. My sponsors and donors had no problems using it. They liked how visual the campaign became and how they were able to follow the fundraising successes with me. It's easy to share in social media. I can't think of anything to improve. My experience has been nothing but positive! I did not expect to get this far. I'd highly recommend GoFundMe to anyone looking into building a fundraiser campaign. Thanks for having developed such a neat crowdfunding platform. I will definitely come back on GoFundMe for future projects once my documentary is published.

I was hoping to help my wife, a grade-school teacher in Chicago, take her students on a field trip. I had never done a GoFundMe campaign before so was unsure what to expect. They make it so very easy to get your page going and start accepting donations right away. The update process is easy, adding content is simple as well, and their support was timely and helpful. We are thrilled with how our campaign turned out and even if you have concerns, they make it so easy for people to share your campaign that you just may see things soaring very quickly! Good luck and if our experience is any guide, people can amaze and astound you with their kindness. Give them a chance with GoFundMe!

As an animal rescue organization, we often find ourselves with one of the dogs needing additional medical care that is more than we have the immediate funds for. We are so grateful to have the GoFundMe platform to help us get the word out to our supporters. While we have regular fundraisers throughout the year there are times that one of the dogs can't wait for us to have a garage sale or silent online auction. GoFundMe is there for them today.

I would give GoFundMe 5/5. Top marks. When I lost my little brother, and I needed money to help me bury him, the GoFundMe team was brilliant, so empathic, and they were always at hand to reply to all my emails, no matter what time I sent emails to them. The team who always replied to me so promptly, was always so polite, and helpful in all their replies to me, even when I wanted to know how GoFundMe worked, they took their time to explain how GoFundMe worked, and there were no small prints, or things which did not make sense to me. It was all above board and honest. Brilliant, I would recommend GoFundMe to anyone who needs to collect monies.

I am absolutely amazed with this site. My daughter wanted to do something helpful for her teacher and my heart has been touched with the process of using this site. It was so easy to use, I didn’t have to spend hours setting it up, it took about an hour, and most of it was figuring out what to say. GoFundMe helped us spread the news and reach more people than I could have ever imagined. Thank you for helping us, and thank you for helping to give Mrs. Vargas her year of a lifetime. She had her last day of work and all of us will miss her so much, but with the help of you and so many others, we know she will get to have some fun!
