PayPal Giving Fund Ireland (PPGF), a registered charity with the Charities Regulator (No. 20205692), is pleased to announce a new partnership with GoFundMe.
GoFundMe is a crowdfunding platform that makes it easy to raise money online for the things that matter to you most. Anyone can start a fundraiser for themselves, for a friend or a charity they care about. Since its launch in 2010, there have been more than 150 million donations benefitting over 110,000 charities globally*.
In GoFundMe’s 2020 Giving Report, Ireland was identified as the most generous nation with 40% of donors donating twice. Galway came out on top as the most charitable county followed by Dublin, Limerick, Cork and Waterford. Owing to the pandemic, the 21st of April 2020 saw an incredible peak of 25,000 donations*. This makes the partnership with GoFundMe a perfect match for PPGF whose mission is to inspire a new wave of philanthropy and make giving a part of everyday life.
