Fundraiser Tools

A suite of tools to empower fundraisers

Enable Individual or Team Fundraising

Allow people to become fundraisers for your cause(s). As Race Directors, you can elect to allow only registered participants to become fundraisers, or open up fundraising to any person (registered or not). Make fundraising social by enabling Fundraising Teams to work together towards a collective goal. You can make the creation of fundraising teams an option, or require all fundraisers to become part of a team.

Fundraising Pages

Automatically create fundraising pages to help your fundraisers reach their goals. These can be customized during registration, or for races that require fundraising, can be customized later to keep the registration process streamlined.

Automated Emails

Send automated Thank You emails to donors. Depending on the options you have enabled, there are a number of automatic emails that can go out, including a donation confirmation, fundraiser creation, fundraiser donation (to the fundraiser), fundraiser minimum reminder email, and more. All are customizable by the race director.

Fundraiser Email Templates

Set up a default template for your fundraisers, highlighting the branding of your event and controlling the message that is sent to the public.

Simple Donations

It doesn’t have to be complicated - RunSignup makes it easy to set up donations for seamless collection

Low Processing fee

Low 4% processing fee with the option for the donor to choose to pay the processing fee.

Donate Anytime

Absorb the processing fee or have donors pay it; alternatively, you can default to absorbing the fee but add an option (with custom text) encouraging the donor to pay it instead.

Donation Levels

Set as many levels (dollar amounts) for donations as you want, and name them creatively for your event. Donors can always opt to enter their own total, but giving them a range of options (and a real world application for the dollars) can inspire them to donate more!

Simple Donation Checkbox

Want to keep your registration path smooth and simple? Collect donations via a simple, single-option "donate $X" checkbox on the checkout page.
