Personal Fundraising for Medical Expenses

If you’re seeking a way to raise money for people (not causes or organizations), we’d like to help. We started GiveForward to help bring your personal fundraising ideas to life. We saw a need for a platform that provided peer-to-peer fundraising and a means to raise money for individuals directly.

What is Personal Fundraising?

Personal fundraising revolves around the idea of raising money on behalf of a specific individual. For example, if a close friend develops cancer and is having trouble affording their medical bills, you could raise funds to help your friend pay for their expenses.

Personal fundraising is not a new idea. However, online fundraising has grown exponentially because it allows people the opportunity to build more awareness around their fundraising effort and appeal to a broader audience.

While many of the people using GiveForward are raising money for someone else, it’s also just as easy to create a fundraising page for yourself if you’re dealing with mounting medical expenses.
