In the window that appears, complete any fields that are applicable. (See descriptions of each field below).

Note: Don't get overwhelmed! The only required field is Fund Name. Most funds you create need just this and a Fund Keyword (for text-giving designations).

  • Parent Fund: The primary fund under which other funds (sub-funds) can be grouped. For example: Your church sends missionaries across the globe. Create a parent-fund called Missionaries and sub-funds for each individual missionary.

  • Sub-Fund: A fund organized beneath a parent fund.

  • Fund Name: How the fund designation will display to givers. Choose something recognizable!

  • Fund Description:  Add a description of what your fund's purpose is about
  • Select a Photo for Your Fund: Add a fund photo to help users recognize the fund easily
  • Fund Keyword: A one-word keyword used to designate text gifts.

  • Fund Code: Used for manual export ChMS integrations.

  • Start / End Date: Control when the fund designation is available for giver use.

  • Show Note/Memo Field for this Fund: Add an option for the giver to leave a note/memo for there donation
  • Add fund to the following giving form(s): Select one or multiple giving forms and add fund to the dropdown fund menu instantly.

  • Hide from Kiosk: Checking the Hide from Kiosk box will make the fund you’re adding visible only when choosing the fund within your form settings. This allows you to create a fund specifically for your event registration, donation, or fundraising form, without the fund appearing on your giving portal.

Note: The only field required for fund creation is Fund Name. All other fields are optional but have been provided for your convenience.


Once you've completed the necessary fields, click Save.
