10 GoFundMe Statistics and Facts (2020) | By the Numbers

GoFundMe Statistics and Facts

Here are a few of the most interesting GoFundMe statistics and facts I was able to dig up. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.

Please note that some of these GoFundMe stats are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don't guarantee anything.
