There is an incredible opportunity to bring our technology, self serve based customer interaction model, and transaction based pricing business model to the nonprofit market. While we have plenty of growth ahead of us in the endurance market (we did $270M in transactions in 2019 out of a $1B market), nonprofit events and online giving represent an opportunity at least 50X that size. The market is served by marketing/sales driven firms without strong technology. Most nonprofits are paying subscription fees. And are held up by their vendors with exclusive contracts that lock them in to old technology. Just as we were a breath of fresh air to the endurance market 10 years ago, nonprofits are beginning to see GiveSignup as a real option to engage with their supporters.

Our goal is to help our endurance customers raise $500 Million per year, and grow GiveSignup ticket and donation revenue for our nonprofit customers to a similar amount so in total we help our customers raise $1 Billion per year in the next 5-7 years. And even then, it will still be Day 1.
