Please note that GoFundMe Charity doesn't have a platform search feature to find campaigns or charities.
GoFundMe.com, for individual fundraising, does have a platform search tool, but even though GoFundMe.com and GoFundMe Charity are part of the same company, they're separate platforms with different features. This also means that you won't be able to search for GoFundMe Charity campaigns in the GoFundMe.com search.
Our engineers are planning to develop GoFundMe Charity search in the future (date TBD), and in the meantime, you can rest assured in the data we've gathered about how people use our platforms.
- Very few campaign donations are attributed to searching.
- The most common use of search by potential donors is to find a campaign that they already heard about but don't have the URL to.
- We've learned that it's quite rare for campaigns to receive donations from people who are just browsing on GoFundMe.
The best thing you can do to increase discoverability of your campaign and convert visitors to donors is to develop an effective strategy for sharing/promoting/marketing your campaign. Most importantly, share the URL of your campaign with potential supporters and make it easy for them to share the campaign with their networks.
