Have you used a site like GoFundMe successfully?


My husband desperately wants out of his dead end job, but found out yesterday financial aid doesn't cover the EMT certification he wants to pursue. We are looking for ways to raise the money for his tuition and he signed up with GoFundMe. I've not used this site before - is it a good choice? anyone ever have problems with it?

    That's fantastic :) We've managed to get around $200 or so since we started the campaign - all from family members lol

    My cousin produces indie films and has had some success with it in the past few months, but he also has an amazing social media team. Social media could maybe help you get donors?

    We have made a couple of hundred, but its definitely a process. fortunately he started a new job a few months ago and at the year mark they will help him as well with a portion of it.

    gofundme is a reputable site and I stated in my question he doesn't qualify for traditional student aid for this program. Stafford loans are not applicable, but thanks.

    It's a decent site - PayPal not so much, their customer service is horrible but they have a monopoly on the market pretty much so I am stuck with them.
