Moorestown, NJ – RunSignUp, the leading race management platform for promotion, registration, and race day has added an upgraded fundraising platform to allow large nonprofits and fundraising events to complete the lifecycle of their event on a single platform. The new Fundraising Platform addresses the needs of many charity-first races, walks, and rides that need modern technology to maximize funds raised without sacrificing the needs of the participants, fundraisers, or donors with outdated technology.
While the new fundraising and donations features were implemented with the guidance of large, fundraising-first events, all races that include a charity component will also have automatic access to the upgraded options. RunSignUp Founder Bob Bickel says of the release, “The 4th generation of RunSignUp Fundraising, delivers the power of the purpose-built peer-to-peer fundraising platforms used by leading charity races, walks, and rides in the US. It was constructed through the guidance of charitable organizations like the Semper Fi Fund, CASA, and Komen Race for the Cure.”
Elaine Grobman, Chief Executive Officer of Susan G Komen Philadelphia, said “We are excited to move to the new RunSignUp platform for the 2017 Race for the Cure in Philadelphia. We expect the mobile design, the ease of use for our fundraisers and donors, the advanced marketing tools and the truly integrated experience from Promotion to Registration to Fundraising to Race Day to have a positive impact on this year’s race.”
The system has been built to accommodate:
Integrated Fundraising and Registration:
As part of the open RunSignUp strategy, RunSignUp will also continue to support Crowdrise and First Giving as options for donations and fundraising; there will also be an enhancement of the Crowdrise integration coming soon.
