2019 Review: Facebook Fundraiser Integration

We launched the free RunSignup – Facebook Fundraiser integration in July 2019. It’s already clear that the integration empowers fundraisers to raise more and reach new donors. On average, connected fundraisers raise $490 more and receive 9 donations more than unconnected fundraisers. Learn More.

Product Updates

Donation Forms: UX Review

After the initial release of donation forms, the UX team elevated the style of donation forms. Updates include a new layout for recurring giving options, a centered heading, and a stylized confirmation page.  Learn More.

Combo Tickets

You can create combo tickets to offer special discounts to your supporters. For example, you can create an offer like “Buy 2 adult tickets, get 2 kid tickets for free,” and GiveSignup’s ticket events will only allow the user to add the free kid tickets once the adult tickets are selected. Learn More.

Donation Form Features

Two new features have been added to Donation Forms: donate button code that you can copy and paste into an external nonprofit website and a confirmation page redirect. Learn More.

Donations: Mail a Card

You can now allow your donors request that a card be sent to their donation honorees. When you enable Mail a Card, the donor will be able to select the option to send a card to their honoree when they make a donation. When the option is selected, the donor can enter the mailing address where they would like your nonprofit to send a card. Learn More.
