St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Wisconsin ditched paper sign ups and spreadsheets in favor of SignUpGenius' simple online sign up tools and raised about $50,000 at its annual festival.
"(SignUpGenius) greatly reduced the amount of time required for me to sign up the volunteers. In previous years, I had to attend all masses every weekend to do sign ups," according to the festival's volunteer coordinator. "We ended up with almost 20 percent more volunteers than last year."Read the story

After using SignUpGenius for our book fair and Oktoberfest, we received lots of positive feedback from parents saying how easy it was to use. I've tried other list-sharing websites, but your excellent customer service and list features convinced me early on that SignUpGenius was the right choice.

This tool is an absolute godsend. I have been doing sign ups for numerous volunteer events for years and this has simplified my life tenfold. I just found out about this through another volunteer organization and have already used it four times for PTA and Cub Scouts. I look like the hero! Everyone loves it. Thanks so much!
SignUpGenius, I love you guys! My book fair volunteer effort was the pits - hundreds of emails with tons of overlap and random problems. Then I found you guys and my project has been rainbows and unicorns ever since. Thank you for your service to an overworked community of teachers!

I have used SignUpGenius and love it. I love that users don't have to create an account to access the sign up, and it is a very user-friendly, intuitive tool. Thank you!
Thanks for your help and thanks for such a great site. We started using it last year for our school fundraiser and other school activities. Volunteerism is up significantly since we started using your site. And it's so much easier to organize too. Great site and great service.
