Will I have to pay taxes on the funds my campaign collects?2019-01-29T09:24:41-05:00

In most cases, donations made to FuneralFundMe campaigns are considered “personal gifts” which are not taxed as income.

There are a few case-specific instances where the donations are taxable (depending on amounts received, use of the funds, etc.), so we recommend that you maintain adequate records of donations received and consult a tax professional to be sure. FuneralFundMe will not report your donations as income at the end of the year, or issue any tax documents.

How long after my campaign ends do I have to collect my funds?2019-01-28T12:01:00-05:00

You have 30 days after your campaign ends to initiate a withdrawal of your donations. We are not a financial institution and therefore cannot hold your funds for extended periods of time. You will have plenty of time and notice from FuneralFundMe before that 30 day deadline. If you do not initiate a withdrawal within that time period, your donations will be refunded.

Campaigns that have no donation activity after 30 days will automatically end.
