Team Mission

As a startup, we are constantly developing our tech and growing our team to support it. Our intern recently posted the following questions on the conference room wall, handed out post-its, and asked the team to anonymously place our answers underneath each question. The team’s responses were overwhelming and speak volumes about who we are as a company.

This exercises clearly demonstrates that our team upholds the same values that led our CEO to start this company; justice, integrity, serving the greater good, and above all else, reliable tech.

My personal favorite question, “Why do you get out of bed to come to work each day?”. It seems likely that the responses to this question would be something along the lines of, “to pay my bills”, or,”for my family”, which are both valid responses. However, the answers our team gave to this question is what sets us apart; we believe in our tech, we get out of bed to make the world a better place.

It is clear that the employees here at Grassroots Unwired care for the community and the non-profit organizations that we work hard for everyday. We aren’t just, “punching the clock”; there is passion in the work that each and every one of us do and we are grateful to do it.

Mobile Platform for “Day of” Run/Walk/Event Fundraisers

Get more out of participants and spectators on the day of your event with the Grassroots Unwired App. Our integrated mobile payment solution eliminates checks and cash. And works even if you don’t have cell or wifi coverage.

Our clients came to us with a problem: how do they extend the online tools they use to organize an event and register participants, to the day of the event where currently, everything happens on paper: multiple spreadsheets across the process, writing down credit card numbers and taking cash and checks, rushing new registrant info to the timing company, and when it’s over, doing all the back end data entry needed to get everything into the CRM.

Grassroots Unwired built a solution: With new functionality added to our already groundbreaking mobile platform, Grassroots Unwired has delivered the first truly mobile solution for the day of your big event.

Key Features:

  • DAY OF SIGN IN & REGISTRATION
  • FUNDRAISE AND SELL MERCHANDISE TO SPECTATORS
  • NO CONNECTION? NO PROBLEM. THE APP WORKS OFFLINE!
  • EVERYTHING FROM THE FIELD GOES INTO YOUR CRM IN REAL TIME

“After years of running our “day-of” run/walk activities on paper, it was a relief to leverage Grassroots Unwired to make the whole experience more efficient and accountable. And I LOVE not having to do data entry after a long day at the event.”
Nicole Kerstin
Sr. Manager – Development, Be The Match Foundation

Blackbaud Integration

Mobile Enterprise Technology

We started with a simple principle: Technology can and should create a social impact:
Grow a constituent base, raise more money, advocate for a cause, and most importantly, be mobile.


The Problem

Tools geared towards non-profits only focus on the online or CRM space. There are no tools that help non-profits reach donors where they are.

The Solution

  • GPS-enabled, real-time, data collection tool
  • Robust scripting options
  • PCI compliant card swipes
  • Unique integrations with social and digital
  • Features built specifically to support face to face efforts
