Key Technology for Collecting Donations…
Brand Your Website with GiveSignup
Did you know that you can use the alternate URL of GiveSignup.org for your event if you want to take the focus off the athletics (or if it’s not a run at all)? No extra steps are required: with our Single Sign On System for multiple brands, the race you create can be accessed from either RunSignup.com/MyRace or GiveSignup.org/MyRace. The functionality is the same, but the branding is perfect for your event.
Collect Donation for your Events
Create custom donation levels that will motivate each participant to donate according to their ability. Provide a wide range of donation amounts; you never know who will select the top level.
Add in descriptions that explain what that specific donation amount will be used towards and create unique titles for each level. For Example:
- Basic Levels: Bronze ($10), Silver ($100), Gold ($500) and Platinum ($1,000)
- Focused on the Cause: An Entree ($10), One Meal ($25), A Family Feast ($100), a Month of Food ($500)
Multiple Charity Partners
Working with multiple charity partners? RunSignup makes it easy to manage and raise donations for each of your charity partners. When participants go to donate, they can select which fund to donate to.
- Easily manage and set up direct payments for your charity partners
- Flexible charity partner display options
- Customize each charity partner’s profile with logos, descriptions, and donation goals
Give your participants a last chance option to donate upon completing registration with a quick and easy checkbox. Don’t overlook this feature, as it can bring great value. Every small $5 or $1 donation can make or break your overall goal!
- Set low-dollar donation option that the participant can opt into at checkout for a higher donation rate
- Checkbox only shows if registrant did not donate during registration
- Show only one Charity at checkout or rotate between charities to show
RunSignup makes it simple to accommodate corporate matching programs.
- Integrations with Double the Donation and HEPdata
- Races with that work with Double the Donation or HEPdata can prompt donors to search for their company to view the company’s maximum matched donation

In our discussion, Amanda covered a range of topics, including registration, fundraising, RaceDay Checkin app, RaceJoy, and Ticket Signup, to name just a few. She emphasized how these tools can be effectively utilized to enhance the overall experience for participants and race staff. Amanda highlighted that the primary reason they transitioned to RunSignup this year was the seamless integration between registration technology and fundraising features, which proved to be remarkably user-friendly both during setup and for participants.Read More
