Our Story

The story of SignUp.com begins with our CEO, Karen Bantuveris. As a working-mom, Girl Scout leader, and active PTA member, Karen enjoyed contributing where she could, but the ‘little things’ that made volunteering a hassle and distracted her from the rest of life—clipboards, multiple websites, reply-all emails, late night reminder messages—seemed endless.

Karen recognized that for her efforts to make a meaningful difference, she needed to simplify how community activities were organized. In 2009, she founded VolunteerSpot, a solution for anyone and everyone who wanted to quickly mobilize and coordinate volunteers. VolunteerSpot's simple, intuitive signup software made it easy for people to join together and say YES to volunteering. No waiting for approvals and passwords, no software to install—just free, easy scheduling and signup tools for everyday heroes.

In 2016, VolunteerSpot was renamed SignUp.com as part of our vision to better serve our expanding audience. Today, millions of people across the U.S. and around the world use SignUp.com for more than volunteer activities. Any event, meeting, or activity that depends on successful group participation and coordination will benefit from our easy, effective solutions and resources.

Whether it’s accomplishing great things, more time with friends and family, workplace recognition, giving back to causes you care about, or any other goal that brings you happiness, SignUp.com will help you do more.
