RunSignUp Community Grant Program

Community Grant Program Header

As a company, we are starting a yearly giving program, and we want our whole community to be involved. We will be donating $10,000 this year, and will continue the program in years to come. This is a donation to a running-related cause, not  a donation to any general charity. The running industry as a whole supports so many charities; we want to support the industry. For an example of the type of charity we are looking for, we (separately) made a contribution earlier this year to this organization: https://theenculturatedchampion.squarespace.com/

If you have a suggestion for this year’s donation, please email it johanna@runsignup.com. Our Customer Advisory Board will vote on the allocation of funds at their annual meeting, and we will announce the result at the 2016 Race Director Timer Symposium.

  1. I had collected over 400 pair of running shoes for Jamaican athletes as one idea could develop into other areas, of which I could deliver slightly defective but good sneakers.

    Another, a partnership with Culligan NJ/International Andy Ball to further a unique water system and providing a turnkey supply for race stops and finish lines. We donate inkind but need help to truly outfit the system.
