Some causes, like schools, have sub-groups such as clubs. Each of these organizations fundraises for itself but must abide by the rules of the larger group that oversees them. Aidtree allows the sub-groups to raise money and donate under the main cause umbrella. The main cause registers as an Institutional Cause. Then the sub-groups request the ability to create a fundraising account under the main cause. The main cause has 100% control over the sub-group and can track the funds for each sub-group as it enters the main cause’s bank account.
