GoFundMe, the website that focuses on crowdfunding for charitable causes, has acquired competitor and long-time 352 Inc. client YouCaring.com. Together, GoFundMe and YouCaring now have a combined community of around 60 million donors in 19 countries.
352 began its relationship with YouCaring in 2011. YouCaring’s founder, Brock Ketcher, came to 352 when his website was in its early stages. 352’s development team rebuilt YouCaring.com to make it more scalable and user-friendly, and 352’s product growth team integrated social sharing features which served as a catalyst for YouCaring’s growth. Over the next five years, 352’s team continued to build and grow the website as it reached millions of users and more than $1 billion in total donations through the platform.
“We’re really happy to see YouCaring continue to grow, and we’re proud to be a big part of YouCaring’s history,” said Geoff Wilson, 352’s Founder & President. “YouCaring is a great website and serves an important mission, and it’s a wonderful success story for our team to celebrate.”
