Donors to border wall GoFundMe campaign will receive refunds

Donors to the crowdfunding effort to support the border wall President Trump wants to build at the U.S.-Mexico border will receive refunds after the campaign misses its target amount.

The GoFundMe campaign was started in December by triple-amputee Air Force Veteran and Trump supporter Brian Kolfage and aimed to raise $1 billion toward the border wall’s $5 billion price tag. The effort had since raised roughly $20.3 million from some 340,000 donors.

But those donors could be getting a refund. “When the campaign was created, the campaign organizer specifically stated on the campaign page, ‘If we don’t reach our goal or come significantly close we will refund every single penny,’” a spokesperson for GoFundMe said in an email to MarketWatch.
