Both pages appear to have stopped taking donations around the same time on Saturday, and the pages’ organizers did not explain why. If a visitor attempts to donate, a message appears that says: “Donations are Complete! The organizer has stopped donations.”
In a statement provided to the Los Angeles Times on Sunday, a spokeswoman for GoFundMe said the website had not halted the donations.
“Each and every GoFundMe campaign organizer is able to decide for themselves when they would like to stop accepting donations,” said the statement from GoFundMe spokeswoman Kelsea Little. “Organizers may also choose to begin accepting donations again at a later date.”
