Julia Clark's SE Caravan now has a fundraising site up and running! Our target is $1,500, and we are using GoFundMe instead of Indiegogo.
Check it out! http://www.gofundme.com/9lbrgw
Maybe you do not understand the problem. I do not wish to give my password to my personal facebook page to Daniel, just so he can log into Gofundme.com to manage my page.
I provided Daniel Hong an email account to create a GoFundMe account. It is [email protected]
Again, let me restate the issue. I do not wish to give Daniel Hong my password to my prsonal facebook account to log in to gofundme.
We need a solution to that issue.
If Daniel will be the one managing the page, he will need to connect his own Facebook account. We require that all users on GoFundMe display their authentic identity. As such the page will need to be tied to him if he is in control of the fundraiser. We do not allow pages to be set up in the name of an organization.
Will Daniel be withdrawing the funds or will you?
Let me know so I can better advise.
So the solution is for Daniel to link his personal facebook to the NatGat South East Caravan Gofundme.com page? The SouthEast Caravan, which I am the heading up. Moreover, I am a terribly technical writer, thus one reason Daniel Hong is writing for me and the caravan will be busy navigating across the backwoods of the US.
The funds withdrawal has not been thoroughly discussed because the Facebook issue arrived first. Daniel said there was three ways to withdraw. Considering there are no funds, yet. Such seems a non-issue at this point.
Let me restate what you have told me. You said in so many words, "Gofundme.com is not a good choice." Which of your competitors would be a better choice?
Let me know so I can better decide.

In order to protect our donors, we do promote transparency on GoFundMe. If you will not be directly managing the campaign or collecting donations personally, then the campaign would not be set up in your name. Instead, you would want to have Daniel set up everything under his own information. Then he can make it clear on the page who he is and where the funds will really be going.
It is also important to make sure that your payment account is set up properly before receiving donations. We have these policies in place to make sure GoFundMe is a safe place for people to donate, and also to protect you from any chargebacks or disputes if a donor feels mislead.
If you don't feel that this would be a good fit for you, I understand. There are several other crowdfunding sites out there, though I'm not sure of any specific ones that allow multiple administrators or that specialize in the what you are looking to do exactly.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Customer Happiness, GoFundMe
Thank you, Taryn. In the spirit of transparency the communication with Gofundme.com was posted on to the loomio thread I mentioned in the first letter.
If we have any questions, I will let you know. It will take longer than 5 minutes for any questions to be decided on.
@danielhong do you have an issue connecting your Facebook profile to the Gofundme page as Taryn described?
Seems kind of logical, if you are managing more than one campaign.
BTW, I did not bold the text above. It C&P that way.
The funds would be going to me. I think he said there was paypal, one other way, and check.
With him managing the updates on the Gofundme page, is there going to be an issue getting the funds to me and the caravan?
In order to make sure this is all squared away, could you have Daniel write in to us from the account email with you CC'd on the thread?
We are unable to go into account specifics without communicating through the email on file for the campaign.
That message can be sent to [email protected]. Go ahead and put Attn: Taryn in the subject line and I'll get this all set up for you.
Thank you very much. I have CC this and forwarded the last mail to Daniel and he will contact you.
