Event updates and coronavirus

As we all make changes to our lives to limit the spread of coronavirus, nonprofits and their supporters are joining together to revise, reschedule, and reimagine events. We have some resources to help:

For nonprofits

Whether you are postponing your event, taking it virtual, or simply evaluating your options for an event later this year, we have some resources to help you move forward.

  1. Create an action plan: ask your supporters if they are willing to “donate” their registration fee in place of a refund. Let them know that they will receive an official tax receipt. Keep in mind that you will have supporters that don’t wish to utilize this option, so have a refund, deferral, and/or virtual plan in place for those supporters.
  2. Clearly communicate with your supporters if you need to postpone or cancel your ticket event using our cover pages or built-in email capabilities.
  3. For your run/walk/ride, use the resources on the RunSignup coronavirus hub to help you take your event virtual.

For supporters

We understand you were looking forward to this event. We’re sorry things got rearranged. Here are some ways you can help out, and stay informed:

  1. Check the website of your upcoming event. If needed, contact the event directly by using the ”Contact this event” link in the footer of their website.
  2. You can still donate! Use the Donate button on the event’s website to support the nonprofit during this stressful time.
  3. Be patient and kind. Nonprofits are working hard to make smart decisions and to keep you informed.

We are in this together

The nonprofit community belongs to, and depends on, all of us. With some teamwork, we’ll get you back to your favorite events.

Delivering the art of technology to 8,000+ nonprofits

But don’t take our word for it. Here is what our customers have to say.

“This is just a note to say thank you. We used your platform to fundraise for our first ever ”Do What You Love to Fight What You Hate” campaign. Participants did their own activity during February (pushups, hiking, running, tennis) to raise funds to fight sexual exploitation/human trafficking in Washington state. We have raised almost $20K... We are so grateful for your platform, the ease of use, and that we could leverage it for a campaign like this. Your platform is helping change and potentially SAVE lives in a whole different way this time, and we’re super grateful for your partnership to help make our campaign happen. THANK YOU for developing this great tool to make a difference in the world!”

Heather Tuininga

Strategic Alliance to Fight Exploitation

“We have one client who raised over $100,000 this year - in the past, they never reached anything like that. Having the donations right there within a couple clicks has improved and dramatically increased the amount of donations we can do in a year.”

Nic DeCaire

Fusion Racing

“It’s worth noting that having access to such an amazing platform for free is really beneficial. We’re able to work with a user-friendly site our participants love and keep our costs lower which allows us to say that all funds raised from this event help support the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.”

It's easy and free to get started.
