What are Households?

Households are a family or unit of Supporters with the same address. The primary use case for Households is mailing lists. Using a Household export for your mailing list ensures you’re addressing a family of donors and not individual members - which reduces duplicate mailings and keeps donors happy.

With Funraise Households, you’ll be able to link donations from each member to see the impact of each Household.
