In this article we’ve provided an overview of how to access and manage donations given on GoFundMe Charity. The Revenue Center gives you control over refunds and recurring donations.
With the Revenue Center you’ll easily be able to view a list of recurring gift plans benefitting your nonprofit; interact with a detailed record view of each recurring gift plan; manage each recurring gift plan by updating the recurring gift amount, modify how transaction fees are covered, change future charge dates, or disabling the plan; and directly message each donor!
Let’s take a closer look at each of these actions.
View detailed information on a recurring gift plan
When you first navigate to the Revenue Center, you’ll notice a list of recurring donations showing as active, disabled, or cancelled.
Active: Recurring donations are still charging each month
Disabled: Will display after the charity administrator puts a recurring donation on hold
Cancelled: Recurring donation is permanently stopped and the donor will need to give again, if they would like to establish a new monthly donation amount.
You’ll also be able to see if these donations were given directly to your charity through your charity profile, or from a campaign you’re hosting on our site.
If you see the symbol above under the Type column, it means that the donation is on a recurring plan. At this time, all donations displayed in the Revenue Center are recurring.

The best part of the new Revenue Center is you can now support your loyal donors with the power to manage their contributions at a click of a button.
