Being the open company we are, we do not express political points of view, and we respect a diverse set of beliefs among our employees, partners and customers.
We also say “No” to events and donation websites on RunSignup and GiveSignup that are for the benefit of a political organization. This means that 527 Groups, or individuals raising money for a 527 group will not be approved for payment accounts on our system.
The logic is that almost by definition, over half of these organizations fail. This means that it is difficult to determine what is a good credit risk and what is a bad credit risk. If we onboard an event that then cancels due to lack of interest from voters, then we have some financial risk. That impacts our ability to provide low costs to our target markets of endurance and nonprofits (501(c)(3) organizations).
