Funds are available for donors to select when they are giving. You can create a fund for anything, but some examples of different funds you might create are:
- General Fund
- Building Fund
- Scholarship Fund
- Missions Fund
*Note: Learn how to filter donations by each fund in your Transactions page here.*
Creating a Fund
To create a fund, go to Giving > Funds within the aware3 admin portal.
Type the name of your fund in the box and select Add Fund.
A fund name can be edited at anytime in the Fund Name text box
A fund description is optional, but can provide a way to give some more context about the fund. There is a 140 character limit for fund descriptions, so keep it short and sweet! The fund description will display along with the fund when a donor goes through the process of giving online or through your mobile app.
To save the changes you have made to a fund name or fund description, simply click outside of the text box. You will see an "Update Successful" message in the top right hand corner of your screen letting you know the changes you made have been saved.
Deleting a Fund
To delete a fund, select the trash can icon towards the right-hand side. You will be prompted to confirm whether you want to delete the fund.
Reordering a Fund
To change the order that a fund displays on your giving page, hover over the fund, then click on the gripper dots on the very left-hand side. Simply drag and drop the fund in its new order.
If you have more than one campus, you have the option to enable a particular fund for a single campus, or for any number of your campuses. Enable a fund for a campus or campuses by checking the box under each campus.

Tax-Deductible & Non Tax-Deductible Funds
By default, your funds will be set to tax-deductible. You can change any fund to be non-deductible by toggling its setting under Giving > Funds:
*If using CCB or PCO giving integration, your funds are managed within those systems. Thus, you will not have the option to select tax-deductible or non tax-deductible. These settings are available for aware3-managed funds. Please visit CCB or PCO to manage your funds and fund settings if using one of those systems.
