Frequently Asked Questions

What school groups is FutureFund Connect for?

FutureFund Connect provides essential features and services for PTAs operating beneath the State level, including:

  • District PTAs
  • Council PTAs
  • Local PTAs
  • PTA Units

What documents does my PTA need to submit?

District and council PTAs in different parts of the USA must collect and submit various documents as determined by their State PTA and the National PTA. When you use FutureFund Connect as your administrative software, we create a custom list of the documents your school group will need to collect and submit, along with all relevant deadlines.

How can administrative errors impact my PTA’s nonprofit status?

Missing, late, or inaccurate documents can have numerous consequences for PTAs at the district or council level. These may include a loss of tax-exempt status, fees, ineligibility for grants, and reputational damage that severely impacts future fundraising efforts. Using FutureFund Connect to source and organize your PTA’s compliance information can significantly reduce these risks.

Key time-saving features for school groups include:

 

  • Custom online store builder for individual schools and PTAs
  • Automatic payment processing for transactions conducted through FutureFund
  • Automatically generated tax receipts for donors
  • Real-time analytics and data visualization to track funds raised
  • Built-in financial reporting tools
  • Customizable administrators and permissions
  • Member messaging system

How Does FutureFund Connect Keep Sensitive Data Secure?

FutureFund is built to comply with all major financial regulations and data privacy laws governing PTAs and school groups in the United States. This includes Federal and state-specific legislation, such as:

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
  • The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Rule (COPPA)
  • The California Consumer Privacy Act
    Assembly Bill 1584
  • The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS)

Our platform also uses current technologies designed to provide extra layers of security when handling sensitive information. These include:

 

  • TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer): These are cryptographic protocols designed to provide secure communication over a network by encrypting data in transit between client and server.
  • WAF and DDOS Protection (Web Application Firewall and Distributed Denial of Service Protection): These are security measures to protect websites from harmful traffic, with WAF filtering, monitoring, and blocking HTTP traffic to and from a web application, and DDOS protection preventing overload of a network or server by a flood of internet traffic.
  • Penetration Testing: This is a method of evaluating the security of a computer system or network by simulating attacks from malicious sources to identify vulnerabilities.
  • Load Balancer Based Compute Isolations: This is a strategy of distributing network or application traffic across many servers to improve responsiveness and availability, while isolating workloads for security and fault tolerance.
  • Role-based Access Control: This is a method of regulating access to computer network resources based on the roles of individual users within an organization, ensuring that only authorized individuals can access specific resources.
  • Secure Logging: This is the process of recording events in a system in a manner that prevents tampering or deletion, providing a reliable record for security auditing and incident response.
  • Static and Dynamic Code Analysis: These are methods of examining source code or running applications to find potential security vulnerabilities, with static analysis checking code without executing it, and dynamic analysis testing code while it’s running in a real or simulated environment.
  • OWASP Secure Coding Principles (Open Web Application Security Project): These are a set of principles and best practices for secure coding aimed at preventing security vulnerabilities in web applications, as defined by the non-profit OWASP organization.
  • Credit Card Tokenization: This is an advanced security process that protects sensitive payment information during transactions.
