An icon of a house sits at the top of a family-tree-style setup with five smaller house icons below, and then two even smaller house icons below that.

Here at Funraise, we’re lucky to work with nonprofits of all shapes and sizes. And with larger organizations comes greater organizational complexity, and that’s led to an increased need to manage multiple accounts under one roof/umbrella/other object that serves as a metaphor for keeping everything in the same place conveniently and securely.

We see your complex organizational structure, friends! Enter Funraise Subaccounts.

What is Funraise Subaccounts?

Subaccounts provides chapter-based organizations, international nonprofits, foundations, and other multi-organization structures with the tools to manage everything in one place. You can view all your big-picture organizational information at once or focus in on any one account for all the nitty-gritty details.

What can you do with Funraise Subaccounts?

Once you’re all set up, you can do a whole lot, including:

  • See the big picture by creating custom roll-up reports to view your entire organizational structure’s performance at the same time.
  • Drill down into the details of each specific account to understand exactly what’s happening in each individual organization.
  • Boost data consistency by analyzing combined data from your connected accounts or examining account-specific data with Fundraising Intelligence, Funraise’s phenomenal fundraising metrics dashboard.
  • Allow for individuality by giving each account control over their own unique brand and design settings for their assets, ensuring donor trust within each individual organization.
  • Build a custom experience when you connect unique payment processors and CRM integrations to each account by configuring settings and integrations based on your distinct strategies and needs.
  • Get everyone involved by inviting team members at every level of your organization to access their accounts safely and securely thanks to individual account permissions for each user.
  • Configure account-specific receipting with individual organization information, donation receipt details, and branding for each account.
  • Enable multi-country processing (and bank accounts!) since each account can connect with a unique payment processing account.

Subaccounts use cases

The possibilities for Subaccounts are endless, but when we first had the idea, we had a few key concepts in mind. Subaccounts is a game-changer for nonprofits that …

  • Operate in more than one country. With Funraise Subaccounts, your organization can create country-specific accounts so that each team can operate independently while staying connected to HQ, ensuring data integrity and business efficiency.
  • Run on a federated model. Federated groups have the flexibility to manage both single-tier and multi-tier models, allowing you to set up a hierarchy structure that will help you manage dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of Subaccounts cohesively and consistently.
  • Are fiscal sponsors. As a fiscal sponsor, you can create a unique Funraise account for each nonprofit while still having full visibility across your portfolio with a single log-in. Ta-da!
  • Have various chapter levels. You can customize account access across global, national, regional, and state chapters, ensuring appropriate settings for everyone.

For any nonprofiteer playing Avril Lavigne’s greatest hits on repeat and asking their fundraising tech, “Why'd you have to go and make things so complicated?”, Funraise Subaccounts is for you. Go forth, grow, and know that every person and every chapter has the support they need.
