Campaign Overview

Campaigns are used to collect money. Examples include, yearbooks, spirit wear, PTA memberships, donations, etc. A campaign is linked to a single fund directing sales to the fund's bank account.

There are seven campaign types:

  • Donation: Great way to collect donations for a project or general fund. Donations allow parents to specify the amount to donate with an optional installment plan.
  • Purchase: Use to sell physical products such as yearbooks and spirit wear and collect money for fees such as lab fees.
  • Membership: Used when selling PTA and PTSA memberships, but can be used for ASB memberships as well.
  • Fundraiser: Use a Fundraiser campaign to set a goal and collect donations for a project or achievement. Fundraiser campaigns support the same campaign options as donation campaigns.
  • Pledge: Used to collect money from friends and family for run-a-thons, read-a-thons, etc.
  • External: Link to third party sites for yearbooks, cafeteria funds, or anything else not in FutureFund. External campaigns provide a way to keep everything parents need in the store without having to remember different sites.
  • Zero Dollar: Allow parents to sign up for free programs without having the pay by credit card. This is a good alternative to products with zero dollar amounts as their purpose and use is clearer.
