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?
I tried it once for my husband's music and did not get one single donor. But perhaps it's because musicians are a dime a dozen these days. Good luck!
Yes definitely do not use a site where you give out personal information and probably will receive nothing in return. These personal sites you never know who is operating behind them and you do not want them to steal your husband or your identity. They could possibly even cause you problems on your credit report if you are not careful. I always worry about fraud these days. Always approach companies like that with caution and remember if it is too good to be true it probably is the case. Definitely financial aid professionals are the best source. You may even have your husband go to the college financial aid department and speak with them directly. Good luck and be careful.
A good company that does student loans is Stafford Federal student loan.this student loan is a defferable loan. Here is the website.
There is nothing wrong with the site but whether you get any donations or not it's hard to tell. I have tried a few times when I needed help financially but didn't get any donations. But it won't hurt to try but it's best to write a detailed description of the situation and it also may help if you have friends on facebook and Twitter. He might be able to get a loan for the certification
I raised $1000 towards a medical service trip to Guatemala last summer with this website, but it was all from family and friends. I quickly started giving instructions on how to donate directly to me through paypal so I didn't lose the fees that gofundme takes. It got me to Guatemala in 2 months, but I don't know how much of that I could have gotten if I had only asked for donations through paypal.
