Q. What if a cause is part of a larger organization like a school?

A. Larger organizations, like schools, have sub-groups like clubs. Aidtree allows the sub-groups to raise money and donate under a main cause umbrella. The 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.
