Get Started

Selling tickets for your school group’s fundraising events is only half the battle—you’ve also got to make sure attendees can redeem their tickets when your events take place.

We developed the FutureFund Turnstile app to streamline this part of the process so you can reach your school fundraising goals while giving more time back to your volunteers. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Create the Campaign for Your Event

Turnstile is designed for ease of use—the biggest and most important step is making sure your campaign is set up for success beforehand.

If you’ve run previous Ticketing campaigns in FutureFund, just follow the same steps. Once you’ve added the tickets to your online store, anyone who buys one will get an email with QR codes and the option to print out hard copies.

If FutureFund is new to you, here’s a quick walk-through:

  • In the Admin, navigate to Store > Campaigns.
  • Click Create Campaign in the top right corner of the screen.
  • The Campaign Management window will appear. Enter your details.
  • In the Type menu, select Ticket.
  • Choose your ticketed event type from the options that appear.
  • Check the box marked Sell in the online store.
  • When you’re finished, click Build Campaign.

Step 2: Edit Your Campaign & Sell Tickets

Once you’ve created your campaign, you’ll want to edit the details and share it with potential attendees to raise more money for your school group. Here are the steps to follow.

  • Find your campaign in the Campaigns screen and click View.
  • Navigate to the Design tab.
  • Under Ticket Events, add a Title and Subtitle for your event, plus dates and a location.
  • Under Ticket Sections, you can add different tiers of ticketing for your event (this could be something like Standard, VIP, etc. or different prices for different areas at seated events).

  • Navigate to the Share tab for a link you can use in emails, social posts, and more. This will take users directly to the page on your school store where they can purchase tickets.
  • Users who purchase tickets will receive an email with QR codes and printable tickets—everything they need to enter your event.

Step 3: Download FutureFund Turnstile

Now it’s time to get your volunteers ready to scan tickets on the big day. This part is incredibly easy. Simply:

  • Have your event volunteers download FutureFund Turnstile from the App Store.
  • Upon opening the app, each user will see a view through their device’s camera on the main screen, plus two icons at the bottom: Scan (the default mode) and History.

Step 4: Scan Tickets

In Scan mode, volunteers simply point the camera of their device at the QR code or barcode shown by each attendee when checking in for your event. Here’s what happens:

  • When the code is in focus, the volunteer’s device automatically scans it and redeems it.
  • When a code is scanned, the corresponding ticket is automatically redeemed by FutureFund Turnstile and logged in the FutureFund admin.

Step 5: Track Ticket Redemption

You can track ticket redemption from each volunteer’s device or from the FutureFund admin. Here’s how:

  • For Volunteers: Check the History tab in FutureFund Turnstile to see a list of tickets scanned and redeemed on your device.
  • For Admins: Tickets redeemed are displayed in the Tickets tab when you view your campaign.

Attendees can also self-redeem tickets if they have the FutureFund Turnstile app on their phones. This saves additional time for volunteers during event check-ins.
