How can I access DACA renewal assistance?

DACA recipients can visit https://www.gofundme.com/ to create a GoFundMe campaign to raise their $495 DACA renewal fee. Depending on availability of funds, DACA recipients may be eligible to receive a donation from the GoFundMe Protect DACA fund to cover their renewal fee.

Here are some tips for creating your own GoFundMe campaign to fundraise for your renewal costs:

  • Make sure to include the terms “DACA” “DACA renewal” in your campaign description.
  • Add a bright main image, or make a video! Your main image/video is your shot at a powerful first impression. This is the image that will show up when you share your GoFundMe, so use clear and colorful images, when possible.
  • It’s helpful to use photos of the people involved, whenever possible, since photos of people get stronger reactions than a graphic or text.
  • Avoid blurry or low-quality images.
  • Write a catchy and descriptive title. Make sure it’s action-driven, and includes the name of the person or organization the funds are for. This is where you tell/show people your story.

Your story brings your GoFundMe to life. It’s your chance to share your story’s details and convey why reaching your DACA renewal fee goal means so much to you***
