Our Story

YouCaring was founded in 2011 by Brock Ketcher, Naomi Ketcher and Luke Miner in Redding, Calif., when they returned from two years of international mission trips. Deeply inspired by their experiences abroad, the three resolved to continue helping others when they arrived home. This resolution became YouCaring, a free crowdfunding platform designed to help fellow students fundraise for tuition and other costs.

Within months, word of the site spread and thousands of people began raising money for medical fundraisers and other charitable causes. Since then, YouCaring has grown to become the leader in free online fundraising, having raised more than $281 million in support of individuals, families, communities and nonprofits looking to save lives, remember loved ones, recover from disasters, fund humanitarian efforts and much more.


We believe kindness is powerful and that by leveraging today's technology, we can help the world by making the best use of humanity's most valuable untapped resource: compassion.

No one should have to face hardship alone. That's why, day by day, dollar by dollar, we are working to create a global giving community on a scale unseen in human history. We are aiming to change the world for good.

And we're doing this for free. By operating solely on donations, we ensure that no one is charged for fundraising on our site. This means that more money finds its way to the right places, doing more good for more people.


YouCaring is dedicated to compassionate crowdfunding, providing free and easy online fundraising and support for humanitarian causes.

We make it free and easy to fundraise for good.
