Who can create and donate to personal fundraisers?

Personal fundraisers are those that raise money for a personal cause, like yourself, your small business, a friend or a cause that's important to you.
You can check below if the ability to create a personal fundraiser is available in your country or region. If it is, you can create a fundraiser to benefit any cause that meets our personal fundraiser policies.
Personal fundraisers are different from nonprofit fundraisers
One important distinction between personal and nonprofit fundraisers is that you can’t use personal fundraisers to raise money for a nonprofit. If you want to raise funds that will go directly to a nonprofit, please create a nonprofit fundraiser. For example, if you want to volunteer with a nonprofit, you can create a personal fundraiser for travel expenses for the volunteering. But if you want to raise funds for that nonprofit, please create a nonprofit fundraiser.
Receiving the money raised
Money raised during personal fundraisers is paid out to the person who created the fundraiser and may have tax implications. If you've created a personal fundraiser, you'll need to add your bank account to receive the money raised.
Note that personal fundraisers have assessed payment processing fees, which vary by country or region.
