Can I register at GoFundMe?

Why should I create a GoFundMe registry through The Knot?
Creating a GoFundMe registry through The Knot allows guests to access your charitable registry, along with your wedding website and any other registry lists you create.

How often will my GoFundMe registry be updated on The Knot?
When your GoFundMe registry receives donations, The Knot will automatically sync the changes to your account on the same day.

You may also share your GoFundMe fundraiser URL directly with guests if you'd like.
