Our mission at GoFundMe is to change the way the world gives. We’ve been thinking about how to best serve as many people as possible while continuing to offer an excellent experience for every single one of our users. We wanted to share this exciting next step with you.

The GoFundMe Team has decided to accept an investment from some top-notch venture capital and growth equity firms. The investment is being led by Accel and TCV, with participation from Greylock, Meritech Capital, and Stripes Group. Their collective experience building global, world-class companies (like Airbnb, Facebook, Netflix, and Spotify) can help further elevate GoFundMe to its full potential so that even more people can raise money online for the things that matter to them most.

This investment will enable GoFundMe to grow the team, enhance product features and functionality, and expand the platform globally.

To date, millions of GoFundMe campaigns have raised nearly $1.2 billion from millions of donors for things like medical bills, volunteer trips, community service, sports teams, and educational expenses. Community support that once took place at bake sales and spaghetti dinners is now happening online, allowing those in need to receive help more quickly when they need it most.

GoFundMe is already the market leader in personal fundraising — and we’re just getting started. This investment will allow our team to deliver an even better fundraising experience to a much wider audience.

We look forward to continue serving you as we grow!
