Fundraiser Toolkit

Learn tips and tricks for a successful fundraiser

Crowdfunding has revolutionized the way people fight cancer. GoFundMe can help you get both financial and emotional support from your community during this difficult time. Here are a few tips to help you create a successful campaign for cancer treatment.
Find an Advocate
Creating and managing a campaign takes time and energy. In order to receive support, you will need to share your campaign frequently and creatively with your community. While in treatment, it may be easier to ask a trusted friend or family member to create a campaign on your behalf instead. For more information regarding finding an advocate for your cause, check out this helpful article.
Be Transparent
We understand that sharing your story and asking for help can be difficult. It’s important to be transparent and honest with your donors regarding your diagnosis and treatment plan. Make sure the campaign description includes how these funds will help you or your beneficiary fight this battle.
Post Frequent Updates
Our update feature allows you to easily share any news or progress with your supporters. Feel free to get creative with your update messages using videos or photos.
Rally Support
You would be surprised by the amount of support you can receive from your community. Besides asking for financial support, consider asking your friends and family to help in other ways within your campaign description. For instance, someone may be able to help you run errands or drop off weekly meals. Here are a few ways friends and family members can help during treatment.
