GiveSignup is an event technology product built by RunSignup. As an Event Director and runner frustrated by existing online registration platforms, RunSignup founder Bob Bickel set out to build a better one that solved problems for event directors and participants in 2009.
Today RunSignup is the largest registration platform for endurance and peer to peer fundraising events with more than 7 million participants signing up each year.
We saw the same need for easy, accessible event technology that solves problems for peer-to-peer events. In July 2019 we launched a new fundraising platform to formally introduced GiveSignup. We leveraged our core technology platform, robust infrastructure, product knowledge from 12 years of building solutions for complex event problems, and relationships with more than 28,000 events to accelerate GiveSignup’s growth as we become the obvious choice for fundraising events.
More Than 28,000 Events Choose GiveSignup Because…
We value your trust above everything.
GiveSignup is a PCI Level 1 payment facilitator and we’ve processed more than $1.7 billion, with all transaction dollars going directly to your event’s bank account and 100% on-time payment. Since 2015, we’ve had just 4 minutes of downtime while doing more than 2,000 software releases per year. We don’t lock you into any contracts – we want happy customers and if you aren’t satisfied, you can leave at any time. Our dedicated support staff is available 7 days per week to assist your team.
Our free marketing tools boost your ticket sales.
Promote your event with unlimited free email, free websites (not just a page), custom social sharing, and digital marketing integrations. Grow your event by incentivizing attendees to bring their friends and family with automated Referral Rewards. Drive revenue and a sense of urgency with the most flexible ticket pricing options available.
Your attendees won’t see our brand, only yours.
Unlike other fundraising platforms, we don’t show our brand and logo to your attendees – and we’ll never send your attendees marketing emails for other events. From custom domains to fully customizable notifications and email, and an event website that’s easy to build and design, your attendees will only see and engage with your brand.
We make your ticketing simple.
Fundraisers have a smooth and easy sign up process with mobile-responsive, SEO-optimized websites. Your fundraising data is always available to easily view and export. We reduce your team’s customer service with powerful participant management options.
We have the technology you need on Event Day.
Schedule pre-event emails and streamline check-ins with our easy to use mobile CheckIn App. Register participants day of and continue participant engagement after the event with RaceDay photos and online results.
Our success is tied to your success.
Our transparent, transaction-based processing fees mean that we only make money when people sign up for your event. This business model keeps us aligned with event directors and ensures that we are partners in building great and free technology that grows your event and makes you successful.
