Is GoFundMe Free?
GoFundMe has a 0\% platform fee for organizers. However, to help us operate safely and securely, our payment processors deduct transaction fees (which include debit and credit charges) from each donation when made. Campaign beneficiaries receive all funds raised minus these transaction fees.
