Projects are designed to allow donors to designate their funds to specific programs and initiatives your organization runs, rather than donating their funds to the overall organization.
A cause might set up a Project around a disaster relief effort (“Hurricane Recovery”, “Dealing with the Ebola Outbreak”), or as an appeal for help with a specific issue under their larger mandate (“Help us build a new school”). Projects can also be used when larger charitable organizations share one charitable registration number and they wish to list their chapters under one profile.
Creating projects enables donors to earmark their donations to a project and this information will be visible on the ‘Detailed Report’ under the 'Project' column. Your organization will need to allocate the funds to the program accordingly.
