  • Pre-Built Fundraising Campaigns: Every account comes with templates for different fundraiser types ready to customize and launch—no need to create a campaign from scratch ever again.
  • Real-Time Analytics: See every donor and their contribution as soon as they make it, and track your campaign progress with helpful data visualization tools.
  • Payment Processing: Accept payments via all major credit and debit cards and record purchases made through other methods like cash and checks as well.

    FutureFund reduces unnecessary paperwork and automates key administrative tasks so that your parent volunteers can do more meaningful work in less time. Key features include:

    • Volunteer Sign-Up: Make it easier for volunteers to sign-up by uploading all the forms they need to your account—so they can spend less time on paperwork.

    • Parent Site: Provide useful resources to parents by creating a dedicated hub for them—plus use it to provide your members with discounts and other perks!

    • Donation Campaigns: Collect contributions for classroom resources, field trips, and more with a shareable link that takes users directly to a donation page.

    How Does FutureFund Stay ADA Compliant?

    FutureFund is designed to be compliant with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Our platform is built with user-friendliness and accessibility for all users, including those with disabilities, as core priorities. We also adhere to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, which covers a wide range of recommendations for making web content more accessible, including:

    • Visual elements such as color contrast for those with vision impairments
    • Support for assistive technology like screen readers for the blind or visually impaired
    • Navigability by keyboard for those who may be unable to use a mouse.

    FutureFund’s commitment to ADA compliance helps us not only serve a wider community but also offer a seamless experience for all users—enabling PTAs, schools, and other groups to engage more effectively with all parents and volunteers.

    How Is FutureFund Different from Other Fundraising Platforms?

    We built FutureFund specifically to support K-12 PTAs and school groups. Our team are PTA members ourselves, and we understand the relationships between parents, teachers, and students—so we created tools that solve the unique challenges these groups face when it comes to effectively organizing and fundraising.

    How Does FutureFund 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 makes use of 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.
