Fundraising Events

Some nonprofits may want to elevate their Giving Tuesday donation ask with an event. For example, we’ve seen nonprofits sell tickets to successful zoom fundraisers where they showcase their nonprofit, beneficiaries, and plans for the coming year with an ask to donate at the end. Or host a virtual 5k, exercise challenge, in-person event – with GiveSignup’s free in-person, hybrid, and virtual event technology your nonprofit has options for creative Giving Tuesday fundraising events that complement your ask for donations and highlight your brand and mission.


Creating a Ticket Event on GiveSignup

1. Visit 

In the ticket event wizard, you'll enter basic information about the event,  contact information, and your ticket types. You'll also turn on donations. On the last step, you'll link a GiveSignup | RunSignup payment account or create a new one if you don't have one yet. 

2. Branding

Add your social share image, logo, and design a beautiful website with the Website Builder or Cover Pages

Website Tips

  • Create a short video (one to two minutes) for GivingTuesday, upload to YouTube, and add it to your cover page.
3. Customize Ticket Settings

Add additional ticket types under Tickets >> Setup, add descriptions, caps, and add information to your confirmation email. Learn more about ticket settings here.
