“Your fundraiser will be sent for review. If it’s approved, you’ll receive a notification and will be able to start raising money for 30 days. Keep in mind that you must be at least 18 years old to start a personal fundraiser.” Read the Personal Fundraiser Policies

When people donate to your fundraiser, they can choose to keep their information hidden from the public, but you will be able to see their username, name on their profile, and donation amount. After your fundraiser concludes, the funds go to your designated bank account.
