The crowdfunding platform is yet to release the funds.
Crowdfunding platform GoFundMe has held more than $6 million in funds raised to support the trucker convoy that is protesting vaccine mandates in Canada.
While GoFundMe has been known to hold on to funds, even take down fundraisers of causes it doesn’t agree with, it continues to be the go-to platform for crowdfunding.
“We require that fundraisers be transparent about the flow of funds and have a clear plan for how those funds will be spent. In this case, we are in touch with the organizer to verify that information,” a spokeswoman for GoFundMe said.
“Funds will be safely held until the organizer is able to provide the documentation to our team about how funds will be properly distributed.”
As of Thursday afternoon, funds were raised from 77,600 donors.
