Are you seeking ways to fundraise for a good cause or a personal project? With GoFundMe and Instagram, you can reach a massive audience and raise funds for your cause or project. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to add a GoFundMe link on Instagram bio. We’ll also give you tips on creating and promoting an effective GoFundMe campaign on Instagram.
Adding a GoFundMe link to your Instagram bio is simple, but trying something new can feel daunting. To help you out, follow this simple guide. The first step is to copy your GoFundMe fundraiser link, which can be done in just a few clicks. Here’s how:
- First, log in to your GoFundMe account on the GoFundMe website;
- Once you’re logged in, locate the campaign for which you want to copy the fundraiser link;
- Click on the “Share” button located on the campaign page;
- A drop-down menu with sharing options, including Facebook, Twitter, and Email. Select “Copy Link” from the dropdown menu;
- Your fundraiser link is now copied and ready to be shared.
- Open up the Instagram app;
- Head to your profile and click on the “Edit Profile” button;
- Scroll to and click on the Add Link option;
- Paste your GoFundMe link into the External Link space provided;
- Click on the blue checkmark at the top of the page to save your link to your bio.
The steps above allow you to add your GoFundMe link to your bio. However, you must still ensure that your GoFundMe link stands out by optimizing it for SEO. Additionally, remember to add a call-to-action in your Instagram bio to grab the audience’s attention. This can be as simple as asking your followers to check out your GoFundMe campaign and support your cause.
If you already have a link in your Instagram bio, worry not. You can still promote your GoFundMe link using a link in bio tools like Pushbio. By opening an account on Pushbio, you can create a landing page. To use the link block on Pushbio, follow these steps:
- Log in to your Pushbio account and head to your user dashboard;
- Click on the “Total Biolinks” button to access the Biolink page if you wish to add your GoFundMe link;
- Once you’re on the Bio link settings page, click on the “Add block” button;
- A drop-down menu of available blocks will appear; select the Link block;
- Paste your GoFundMe link into the “Destination URL” field;
- Give your link a relevant name by filling out the “Name” field;
- Click “Submit” to add your GoFundMe link to your bio link page.
After adding your GoFundMe link to your landing page, copy your landing page’s unique URL and add it to your Instagram bio so your followers can easily access the fundraiser.
How to receive a donation with Pushbio
While GoFundMe is a popular fundraising platform, you can receive donations directly from your Pushbio landing page. You can do this by leveraging the donation block present on Pushbio. One advantage of using Pushbio to receive donations is that it gives you much more flexibility with payment platforms. You can choose between six payment processors, including cryptocurrency, which ensures you can use one popular among your audience.
Instagram is a great platform to promote your GoFundMe campaign as you can create engaging content that will help you reach more people and raise more funds. Here’s how to put your GoFundMe link on Instagram:
- Launch your Instagram application and sign in.
- Tap on the “+” icon at the top of your feed beside the message icon.
- Click on “Post” and select (a set of) photos and videos that will support your cause.
- Add filters if you wish and click on “Next” or a right arrow.
- Write a caption that includes your GoFundMe link. This is important because you can’t post a clickable link in the visual content like stories. So, you’ll need to add the link to the caption.
- Tap on “Share” or a checkmark to publish your post.
That’s it! By following these simple steps, you can share your GoFundMe link with your Instagram followers and increase the visibility of your campaign. You can create graphics, videos, and photos to aid your cause and create reels to explain why you’re having a fundraiser and how far a specific donation will go in assisting your cause. Remember to include a compelling caption that encourages people to donate and support your cause.
Instagram stories are an excellent way to promote your fundraiser and encourage your followers to donate to your cause. Here’s how to put your GoFundMe link on your Instagram story:
- Launch your Instagram app and tap on the “Your Story” icon at the top left corner of your screen.
- Select a photo or video that will serve as the background for your link.
- Tap on the “Sticker” icon located at the top right corner of your screen.
- Select the “LINK” sticker from the stickers available in the Sticker tab.
- Add your GoFundMe link in the provided space.
- Once you add the link, select where you want the link to stay on your photo or video.
- Click the arrow button to post and share your story.
That’s it! By following these simple steps, you can share your GoFundMe link on your Instagram story and encourage your followers to donate to your cause. Instagram stories are a great way to share your fundraiser and continue to post every 24 hours until you reach your target. Viewers can directly click on your link to take them to your donations page and contribute to your cause. Furthermore, you can add a photo, video, or song with the link for better effects.
How to promote GoFundMe campaign on Instagram
Promoting your campaign on Instagram is key to reaching a wider audience and raising more funds. When promoting on Instagram, staying true to your cause and remaining authentic is important. Below are some tips for a successful GoFundMe campaign promotion on Instagram:
1. Post regular updates
Posting regular updates about your campaign is key to keeping your followers engaged and informed. Share your progress, tell a personal story, or shout out to your supporters.

Find the right balance and post updates that are meaningful and relevant.
2. Utilize Instagram stories and highlights
Instagram stories and highlights are a great way to showcase your campaign more dynamically and creatively. Use stories to give behind-the-scenes glimpses of your campaign, share testimonials from supporters, or even host a live Q&A session. You can also create highlights that feature your campaign updates, FAQs, or thank-you messages. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and have fun.
3. Engage with your followers
Engaging with your followers is key to building a strong community around your campaign. Respond to comments, answer questions, and thank your supporters for their donations. You can also use Instagram’s interactive features, such as polls and question stickers, to gather feedback and engage with your followers more fun and interactively.
4. Collaborate with other accounts
Collaborating with other accounts in your niche or industry can help you reach a wider audience and gain more exposure for your campaign. Reach out to accounts with similar values or interests and see if they want to collaborate. This could be in the form of a shoutout, a feature, or a joint campaign. Remember, there’s strength in numbers, so feel free to reach out and build meaningful connections.
By now, you should have all the tools you need to promote your fundraiser on Instagram and reach a wider audience than ever before. Remember, Instagram is an excellent platform to engage with your followers and share updates about your GoFundMe campaign.
