What can I fundraise for on GoFundMe?
If you can dream it, you can fundraise for it on GoFundMe. Through The Knot, you can start a GoFundMe in support of a favorite charity such as UNICEF or the American Red Cross, or directly fundraise for your dreams in your new life together, be it for upgrading the backyard or saving for college tuition.
Can I register at GoFundMe?
Yes! Here’s how to create your GoFundMe fundraiser online:
Create an account on The Knot.
Select GoFundMe from the list of more than 20 retailers and organizations available on The Knot. You’ll then be redirected to GoFundMe’s website (or, you can go to gofundme.com/the-knot-fundraisers to get started).
Create a GoFundMe account.
From here, you’ll be able to decide whether your fundraiser will be used to support a certified charity or to raise funds for something closer to you and your dreams.
You’ll be able to edit the title, image, and content on your fundraiser, and adjust the settings for how you’d like to share and manage the page. The best part: all money raised is automatically transferred directly to your bank account or sent to the nonprofit of your choice.
One of the biggest GoFundMe fundraiser benefits? Wedding and bridal shower guests will be able to donate to your GoFundMe fundraiser using most major credit cards—Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover. There is a standard transaction fee of 2.9% plus $0.30 per donation that enables credit card processing and safe transfer of funds.
Why should I go through The Knot to raise money for myself or others on GoFundMe?
Creating a GoFundMe fundraiser through The Knot allows guests to access your fundraiser, along with your wedding website and any other registry lists that you create. With a The Knot Registry, you can have the best of both worlds: a fundraiser that allows you to do some good, or raise funds for your future, and a few gifts for you and your soon-to-be spouse to get started on your new life together.
How often will my GoFundMe fundraiser be updated on The Knot?
When your GoFundMe fundraiser receives donations, The Knot will automatically sync the changes to your account on the same day.
How do I share my GoFundMe fundraiser with guests?
It’s simple to share your GoFundMe fundraiser with guests. First, create a wedding website on The Knot. Your fundraiser will appear on the site you create. Then, head to your fundraiser settings and click “Copy Link”. This automatically copies the URL for your fundraiser, which you can then paste onto your save the dates and invitations. Simple as that!
You may also share your GoFundMe fundraiser URL with guests, friends, and family via text, email, or social media.
How do I find a GoFundMe fundraiser?

On The Knot, click “find” and then enter the first and last name of one member of the couple. Then enter the wedding month and year. On The Knot, you will see the couple’s GoFundMe fundraiser, as well as any other retailers or organizations they’ve registered with.
