make it possible for donors to move their donations to a sub-collective #1587
As a donor, I can move money I donated to a collective to a sub-collective so that I can support a specific sub-collective with previously donated money to the collective (as long as both collectives are on the same host)
Some more context:
Best solution for this problem
A donor can go to each collective to which they donated and see how much money they donated which has not yet been moved to a sub-collective. They can then select an active sub-collective and the amount of money that is still left in the collective that they donated and have not yet moved.
The MVP would be to have some way for the collective admins to track when they move money at the request of a donor and donors being able to see what is “left”.
Collectives actively using sub-collectives as a means to fund specific causes.
The goal of the documentation should be to make it easier for others to do this

Hello @lsmith77 thanks for opening this!
This should already be possible, just go to the donate page of the collective you want to send the money to, then in "Contribute As" select the collective sending the money and you should be good to go - as long as the collectives are hosted by the same host you can move the funds instantaneously.
I'll close this for now but feel free to re-open if this doesn't solve your problem.
this covers the ability to move funds as an admin of a collective. it does not cover the full user story which is about “donors” reallocating the money they donated to a collective. and it does not even cover the MVP which is about tracking how much money an admin has moved on the behalf of a donor and showing the amounts to the donor.
so none of the things I requested above are currently possible.
