Your family reunion funding needs covered

Use money pools to collect money for food, decorations, venue fees, vendors, entertainment, and more. 

Pool Links make collecting money easy

Family members don’t even need to sign up—they can contribute with a debit or credit card. You can set a specific amount, for example, if you budget exactly how much you need in total and divide it by the number of guests coming to the family reunion.

Personalize your Pool Link

You can use custom text, colors, and images to let family members know how their contributions will help fund the family reunion so they can feel like they really are a part of the party.

Braid Pools are a better way to save and track funds for the family reunion

Braid is a simple way to pool money and spend it. You can invite other family members to help manage and spend the money with you, like if you’re planning the reunion with more than one person. This is great if you have a really big family and need some extra help.

See contributions as they happen

Instant notifications show when someone puts money into the family reunion fund.

Easily spend from your pool with a free debit card

Every Braid Pool comes with a ready-to-use debit card. Use it wherever MasterCard is accepted. Add it to Apple Pay or Google Pay for contactless payment.
