Announcing our Fundraising Giveaway WINNER!
Please allow us to introduce our winning Fundraising Group:
The school will receive a check for $2500 to help boost fundraising efforts.
School Principal Janese Vance was notified about the prize money on April 1st, and we assured her the news of winning was not an April Fool’s joke! Vance said, “We are beyond thrilled to win this money. We are a school and we never have enough money to do what we need to do to help the students at our school.”
Mountainville Academy parent KayLynn Sims nominated the school to win the Grand Prize, and will also receive a $100 Visa gift card. Says Sims, “I nominated our school because we are always looking for creative ways to raise money. I am currently serving on the FSO (Family Student Organization) as our vice chair and we have an anonymous donor that is matching our funds dollar to dollar until the end of the year. I thought it would be such a blessing to have a bigger chunk for that!”
SignUpGenius staff members were pleased to hear that we’ve also been able to help Mountainville Academy in their planning endeavors! The school’s FSO uses SignUpGenius for volunteer sign ups and the school registrar uses the site for setting appointments. Sims noted, “Our carnival is a logistic nightmare without SignUpGenius.”

When I try to import email addresses from gmail it gives me a blank pop up box and then tells me that I didn't "accept" in a timely manner. Is this because my custom design is not yet approved?
It's probably doing this because it's taking you too long to log into your Gmail account. Please try going to gmail and logging in first, then try to upload from our site. If you continue to have problems, please email our support team directly using the Help tab.
