What is the GoFundMe Donate Button for individuals?

The GoFundMe Donate Button is a personalized widget that you can embed on your website or blog to easily promote your fundraiser and encourage others to donate. The Donate Button showcases your main fundraiser image, your fundraiser title, the amount you’ve raised—and most importantly? It contains an active link to your fundraiser that takes people directly to your donation page.

In just two steps, you can embed the GoFundMe Donate Button on your blog or website, including WordPress, Squarespace, and Weebly sites.

Why use the Donate Button for individuals?

  •  It’s completely free

    The Donate Button helps organizers and supporters raise as much as they can for causes they’re passionate about. And best of all? It costs nothing but has a big impact.

  • It’s as simple as copying and pasting

    Making sure the Donate Button appears on your website or blog doesn’t require any complicated engineering. Simply copy the embed code from your fundraiser page and paste it into the HTML of your website or blog. 

  • It can increase donations 

    The magic of the Donate Button is that it’s an easy way to boost the number of views to your fundraiser. When an individual visits your website or blog and sees your fundraiser image, all they need to do is click the “Donate now” button. Then they’ll be taken to a payment page where they can make a donation of any amount to support your cause. 

  • It allows you to support causes you care about

    Each fundraiser on GoFundMe has a unique embed code that is available to anyone. Even if you didn’t launch your own GoFundMe, you can support or promote a fundraiser that’s important to you by embedding that fundraiser’s Donate Button on your blog or website. 

  • The GoFundMe brand inspires trust

    The GoFundMe community has raised over $9 billion from over 120 million donations, making our platform the most trusted in online fundraising. When potential donors see the GoFundMe name included on the Donate Button, they’ll immediately recognize that your cause is hosted on a well-known and trusted crowdfunding platform. And with the GoFundMe Guarantee, you and your supporters can feel confident knowing that donations are secure and going to the intended party.
