Top News: RunSignup for Nonprofits Early Adopter Program
More than 8,000 RunSignup customers are nonprofits, and more than 95% are connected to a nonprofit in some way. Our customers have been telling us that they want to use RunSignup’s free all-in-one platform and low processing fees for their nonprofit events, websites, and donation and fundraising campaigns. We are making that possible with three exciting new features for nonprofits:
- Nonprofit Ticket Events are designed to handle fundraising events like spaghetti dinners, golf outings and galas that need built-in donations and referral capabilities, but not fully-powered registration.
- Donation Websites give nonprofits free and beautiful websites to collect one-time and recurring donations, with flexibility for unlimited donation and fundraising campaigns.
- Nonprofit Dashboard gives your nonprofit a place to connect, access, and analyze data and engage supporters across ticket events, donation websites, and races.
