Frequently Asked Questions

What Makes FutureFund Different from Other Fundraising Platforms?

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

What Unique Features Does FutureFund Have?

FutureFund supports PTA members and school groups with a suite of built-in features including:

  • Automatic tax receipts for donations over $250
  • Corporate matching for eligible donors
  • Convenient messaging tools for all members to facilitate clear communication

Who is FutureFund For?

FutureFund is specifically built to support the work of PTAs at the national, state, district, and local levels—as well as schools, booster clubs, and Ed Funds serving K-12 students in the USA.

How Much Does FutureFund Cost?

FutureFund is 100% free for schools to use. Instead of charging monthly service fees for organizations to use our software, donors pay a small percentage on top of each purchase or contribution made through our platform. This means your organization gets to keep 100% of all proceeds from your fundraising activities—when someone donates $100 to your PTA, that’s exactly the amount you get.

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.
