With GoFundMe Charity we have a couple of different account types, with different levels of control over a campaign. In this article we will be breaking down the difference between these account types and what you can do from each.
Charity Administrative Account
If you are affiliated with a charity, and you claimed your organization when signing up, your account will convert to a charity account, which has different permissions and features than a standard personal account.
To identify if you have an a Charity Account, you can look at your Account Navigation to find that you have access to the following features:
- Revenue Center
If you do not have access to those features, you consider yourself to be affiliated in some way to the organization (whether you work there or volunteer heavily there) and would like access, please claim your organization. If you cannot find your organization to claim, please add your organization first.
Keep in mind, if you created a campaign before you claimed your organization, you will need our team's help to reattach it. Please contact us, if this occurs.
If you do not work or volunteer heavily with an organization, you will not need to claim your charity. As a supporter with a personal account, you can create and manage campaigns, but you will not be able to help your charity withdraw their funds, change their pricing options, or view donor information in the Report Center for security reasons.
To know whether you are logging into a personal account, please view your navigation to see if you have access to the Revenue Center at the top of the page. If you don't, it means you are not currently a charity administrator and can only campaign on their behalf.
