This article will help you if you are blocked from creating a GoFundMe Charity account or a campaign while raising funds for a US or Canadian organization, and you are experiencing the 403 error.
If you are stopped due to a 403 error, this is likely because you are using GoFundMe Charity outside of the US and Canada. Although the US and Canadian organizations are our only supported organizations on GoFundMe Charity at this time, it is still within our terms for customers to be able to create a campaign on their behalf, even when based outside of those countries.
However, due to the current setup of our site, you will be blocked, so the best way around this is to ask a friend, family member, or coworker based in the US or Canada to create the account and campaign for you using your email address.
Once they've created the campaign and account, they can share your sign-in information, and you can change your password within your account, so it's secure.
If you do not have someone that you know who can assist, please reach out to our team with the following and we can help you directly.
