What happens if the goal isn't reached by the end of the fundraiser?

There is no consequence if you do not meet your fundraiser goal. Funds are collected as they are donated, so you always receive all the funds that have been donated in real time, less the fees charged by your payment processor and according to their standard distribution periods. 

If you want more time to reach your fundraiser goal, you can extend or remove the deadline on your fundraiser, or simply create a new fundraiser under your current YouCaring account.
