SignUpGenius, the leading online sign up service for event and volunteer management, continued fast growth in 2018, reaching more than 96 million unique visitors — an increase of 19 million from 2017. Revenue increased 42% from the previous year.
SignUpGenius celebrated its 10-year anniversary in October, helping users plan 13 million events in a decade. The tool was first used to coordinate snacks for a soccer team in 2008, and now helps up to 18 million people per month organize everything from family potlucks to large charity fundraisers.
"We’re grateful for the opportunity to help millions of groups accomplish their missions over the past ten years whether it’s the local elementary school PTA or an international business,” CFO Jeff Richek said. “Our team is focused on developing more advanced tools to help our growing customer base simplify organizing in 2019.”
SignUpGenius users gave back to communities across the country, including organizing relief efforts to help those affected by natural disasters such as Hurricane Florence. The company recorded its busiest month ever last October with more than 18 million unique users.

● Users signed up for 76.3 million items from class party treats to volunteer slots.
