RunSignup Introduces GiveSignup, a Free Technology Platform for Nonprofits
July 15, 2019
Leading Run/Walk/Ride platform extends to Nonprofit Ticket Events and Donation Websites
RunSignup is proud to announce the launch of GiveSignup, a new division of the company that expands RunSignup’s technology suite for nonprofits with a ticketing platform designed for nonprofits, donation websites, and a next generation nonprofit dashboard. GiveSignup is an all-in-one and open platform that powers nonprofit revenue generation and supporter engagement.
GiveSignup is built on the technology and business foundations of RunSignup. RunSignup, an employee-owned company, was started in 2010 to create solutions for endurance events. Today, RunSignup is the largest technology provider to races in the US. More than 20,000 races, supporting over 8,000 nonprofits and 6 million participants, use RunSignup’s free and integrated solution to save time, grow their events, and raise more.
RunSignup’s 8,000 nonprofit customers have been asking to use RunSignup’s free all-in-one platform and low processing fees for their other nonprofit events – galas, golf outings, pancake breakfasts – as well as their websites, donations, and fundraising campaigns. Existing platforms for nonprofits demand expensive subscription plans, charge higher processing fees and have disjointed data and solutions.
On GiveSignup, nonprofits can raise more and save time with the following:
Ticket Events: GiveSignup is the only ticketing platform built for nonprofits, giving nonprofits the technology and full control to grow events and raise more. Automated referral rewards and fully customizable event websites increase attendance, and integrated one-time and recurring donations cultivate nonprofits’ donor pipelines.
Donation Websites: Flexible and beautiful donation websites have clear calls to action, simple donation forms for one-time and recurring donations, and free domains and subdomains to elevate nonprofits’ brands and convert visitors to supporters.
Runs, Walks, and Rides: Participants become supporters and advocates with the leading all-in-one technology for non-profit endurance events, RunSignup. Integrated fundraising with teams, free Facebook Fundraiser integration, and automated fundraiser rewards make it easy to raise more.
Nonprofit Dashboards: The Nonprofit Dashboard gives nonprofits the intelligence to optimize fundraising efforts and engage supporters through easy-to-understand real-time financials, analytics and a powerful CRM.
“Our customers led us to introduce this new platform,” said Bob Bickel, Founder and CEO of RunSignup. “95% of races are connected with nonprofits in some manner, and it was clear the same type of open and free technology approach was needed beyond races for these customers.”
“GiveSignup lets us expand the services that we offer to our customers and grow our event business for nonprofits. In addition to producing the Sunflower Days 5K, we are also able to provide a ticketing solution for the Sunflower Days event, which brings more than 40,000 people to visit and support the Pope Farm Conservancy,” said Ryan Griessmeyer, founder and president of Race Days Events.
GiveSignup leverages the rich architecture and technology of RunSignup and has a dedicated team to help drive future nonprofit solutions by listening to customers – the same approach RunSignup has used to help make tens of thousands of races more successful.
