Time’s Up Is the Most Successful Fundraiser in GoFundMe History
December 7, 2018
The Time’s Up GoFundMe page has raised more than $22 million since it launched in December 2017 — the most by any GoFundMe campaign ever.
The fund supports the legal cases of people who've come forward to report workplace harassment, putting victims in touch with the legal professionals who can guide them through the process.
So far, Time’s Up has helped fund 68 cases, 67.6% of which came from those who qualify as low-income. According to the National Women’s Law Center — which created the fund — more than 3,700 people have reached out to Time’s Up for help with legal fees.
“Throughout the year, we saw people respond to the news and come together to stand up for women’s rights and fight sexual harassment and violence against women,” GoFundMe CEO Rob Solomon said in a statement, according to BuzzFeed News. “From friends supporting each other in local communities to women on the national stage, such as Dr. Ford, we saw people engage, find community, and turn compassion into action.”
