What’s New with the 2018 Community Grant Winners

Every year, our company seeks to give back to the endurance community through our Community Grant Program. This program allows anybody to nominate an endurance-related, nonprofit organization to receive a grant benefitting their cause. Since the beginning of this program, RunSignup has donated over $30,000 dollars to 15 organizations. Grant recipients are narrowed down to... Continue Reading →

Charity Fundraiser Spot Allocation

We are extending our Fundraising platform to allow large races to manage the process of allocating spots to different charities who use a diverse set of fundraising platforms outside of RunSignUp. The big benefit is that the race then gets each fundraiser to go thru the normal registration process and collect all the normal race... Continue Reading →

Hide Charity Option

There is a new option to hide Charities.  This is useful if you might change charities from year to year or wait to resign agreements each year. The setting is on the Edit Charity page:

The fundraiser can modify this message, but it provides for better "standard customization" capabilities for charities working with many fundraisers. Note each Charity can set their own message and it will appear when a fundraiser selects to support that charity as... Continue Reading →

Charity Improvements

We have added better ways to allow multiple people within a charity to have access to their RunSignUp charity account. In addition, we now allow charities to enter in their own manual donations.

Donations and Fundraising from Aut2Run

One thing we frequently hear our Partners warn against is the creation of a Race/Run/Walk for fundraising without fully understanding the creativity and labor required to make such an event profitable. Fundraising events can be labor-intensive time vacuums, but they can also be hugely significant fundraising vehicles when done with the right mix of passion, logistics, and... Continue Reading →
