You Can Make a Difference for a Grieving Family

How do people use GoFundMe after the passing of a loved one?


GoFundMe can give you a simple but meaningful way to provide aid and comfort to a grieving family. They could be struggling with funeral costs. They may want to start a fund for children left behind. Whatever the need, a GoFundMe can help.

“GoFundMe was an amazing help to us after my husband died. Not only as a fundraiser but as a method of receiving condolence messages that meant so much to us.”
—Maria raised over $20K
