Parent and Child Projects

IgnitionDeck Crowdfunding (IDCF) supports Child/Parent relationships between crowdfunding projects.  In this scenario, a child-project’s funds raised count toward its parent-project’s fundraising goal, as well as its own.

IDCF Projects can have up to three levels of hierarchy (Child, Parent, and Grandparent Projects). All Projects in a hierarchy inherit the total  amount raised below them in the chain and count it toward their “amount raised.”


In this example, the Child-Project has raised $25 of its own, the Parent has raised $10 of its own, and the Grandparent Project has raised $0 of its own.  The Parent and Grandparent inherit the amount raised from the projects below them in the hierarchy, so the Parent and Grandparent Projects both display $35.


 To create a hierarchy between projects:

  1. Go to the Edit Screen for the project you would like to assign as a child project.
  2. In in “Page Attributes” section, on the right side of the screen, select a the project you would like to the parent from the “Project Parent” selector.
  3. Update your project.
