A fund category could be used to show a name that another office may use for the same fund. Another possible use may be to track similar funds that belong to different campaigns (e.g. scholarship funds, annual, restricted). This field is available to be filtered upon in the VSE Survey Report and is utilized in RE NXT for the Analyze Panels as a filter option.

Campaigns, Funds, and Appeal records can each have categories - For more information, see What is an appeal category? 

Users may also filter by Fund Category, Fund Type, Appeal Category, or Campaign Category in a report
