Cover Page

Your website acts as the leading visual for your event, it may be the first thing a potential participant sees when they check out your event. It’s important to create a visually appealing and informative layout to best engage with website visitors and guide them to eventually register and become a fundraiser.

The 2023 Summit for Life makes great use of the many dynamic content blocks custom to GiveSignup. For example, they input a countdown clock, fundraising leader boards, custom action buttons, and sponsors.

  • Event Type: Standalone Fundraiser
  • Donation Goal: Unlimited

The Semper Fi & America’s Fund has a standalone fundraising event that allows donations all year long. The event includes a few additional outbound links for FAQ’s, volunteer interest, and help getting started with hosting an event in support of the cause.

Why We Love It

All Year Fundraising

Semper Fi activates peer-to-peer fundraising events in multiple ways. Throughout the year, they engage charity bib runners at major events (Kathy Wise shares her knowledge on Charity Bibs here).

Additionally, they needed a simple solution for all year fundraising that allows for personal event fundraisers and online solicitations. To set up was as easy as disabling the typical event features. But, just because it’s a simple event doesn’t mean you loose out on any complex features. Semper Fi still has all of the same features to create a professional website and empower fundraisers. Learn more about GiveSignup’s ability to keep fundraising available all year long.

Fundraiser Support
