Can I raise money anonymously?
If you’re looking to create an anonymous fundraiser or hide your name, then we highly recommend that you reach out to a close friend or family member who can create the fundraiser on your behalf. They can also withdraw the money and send the funds to you outside of GoFundMe.
What is a good amount to raise for charity?
The answer to this question can often vary, based on who you ask. Some recommend giving 1% of your income to charity each month, while other recommendations range between 3% to 10%. But when we account for different incomes, living expenses and unexpected costs – we realise that it’s rarely that simple.

Can I start a charity without registering?
The need to register is triggered by “solicitation” efforts by the nonprofit, such as asking for a contribution or selling goods/services that will benefit a charitable cause. An organization does not need to actually receive a donation to trigger registration in most states.
What are the legal requirements for fundraising?
Fundraising Legal Requirements Regarding Tax Exemption
- File articles of incorporation with your state government.
- Receive an Employer Identification Number (EIN).
- Determine exactly what type of 501(c) organization you’re starting—public charity, private foundation, or other tax-exempt organization.
Does GoFundMe show your name?
Making a donation anonymous means that your name will not be visible to the public on the campaign page. For security reasons, you cannot make an entirely anonymous donation: The organizer and beneficiary will always be able to see your name. You are required to enter the name on the credit card when making a donation.
Do I have to put my real name on GoFundMe?
As the GoFundMe organizer, your name will appear on the account, and you cannot be anonymous. We have this policy in place to promote transparency between the organizer and supporters.
