About GoFundMe:

GoFundMe launched in May of 2010 in San Diego, CA, and has quickly become the world’s most popular fundraising platform. With its devotion to helping people raise money for the things that matter most to them in their lives, GoFundMe has clearly made its mark in the space. Since its launch, over $2B has been raised on the platform from more than 20M donors -- $1B of that was raised in the past year through GoFundMe. GoFundMe is leading the "social giving" movement in the US and beyond.
