Pledges

FutureFund's pledge campaign is a great way to encourage student achievement as well as collect donations from friends and family.

Creating Pledge Campaigns

Campaigns are created as the Pledge type and specify the following fields:

  • Actions: Actions are the activity the student will perform. FutureFund supports the following actions: (Read, Walk, Run, Swim, Lift, and Cycle)
  • Units: Units describe how the actions will be measured. FutureFund supports the following units: (Books, Miles, Laps, Pounds, and - Kilograms)
  • Expected Units: The number of units the student is expected to perform. This is a campaign level setting, students can supply their own value later in the process.
  • Suggested Price per Unit: The price friends and family will pay for each unit.
  • Email Template: Parents will email friends and family letting them know about the fundraiser. This field will serve as the body of the email. Parents can customize this before they send it.
