As you are selecting and editing funds via the Give & Grow app on Shopify, you may notice the orange “deprecated” notation on a fund (“deprecate” really means “no longer available for selection” or “it’s going away.”).

Deprecating a fund means that folks who are currently using that fund will not be impacted, but no new store will be able to choose that fund to donate to. If a store owner is already donating to a fund that has been ‘deprecated’ the orange icon (above) will appear in the list when they go to switch to a new fund. If they decide to switch to a new fund (say from Treat Diseases to Provide Meals) they will no longer be able to switch back to their old fund (back to Treat Diseases) if the old fund has been deprecated.
