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

A mobile first tool for face to face advocacy:

  • 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

New Feature: Nearest Neighbor Lookup

Grassroots Unwired has a released a new feature that we believe changes the game in helping your organization gain new supporters and it’s called Nearest Neighbor Lookup.

There is nothing more powerful than additional validation when it comes to getting new supporters to donate to your organization. When you knock on a potential supporters door, how do you let them know about others around them who have already joined your cause?

May 2017 Grasshoots

Grassroots Unwired is built on the philosophy that mobile-first technology can be customized and utilized for the greater good. From helping progressive candidates win elections to empowering non-profit organizations working to save our environment, balance inequality and improve our communities, Grassroots Unwired bridges historical canvassing with groundbreaking technology.
We are transforming the way our clients galvanize support for their candidates and their causes.

Each month, we make two platform releases which include new features, custom programming for individual clients and improvements to existing features that benefit everyone using the platform. Recently, a release included an exciting new integration that we wanted to make sure you knew about.

New Feature Launch

ActionKit

  • One of the great strengths of the Grassroots Unwired platform is the ability we give our clients to seamlessly integrate other tools that they use for their advocacy efforts with the GRU platform.
  • ActionKit helps you organize online and we help you organize “offline.”
  • Now the data collected during F2F advocacy on the GRU platform, can be sent in real time to your ActionKit instance so your new supporters can become part of your outreach effort immediately.

More Integrations – Grassroots Unwired has several CRM integrations.

Contact Us to see if yours is supported.

Coming Soon
  • BYOP(rocessor) – If priority one for you is F2F fundraising, our donation capture and processing is better than any other mobile product on the market. Now we have opened up our platform to over 70 payment gateways to give you the most seamless payment experience possible.
Goings on in the Office
  • Last Month, Russ and Jordan headed down to DC for our inaugural appearance at NTEN’s 2017 NonProfit Technology Conference. That was fun. They talked with hundreds of non-profits about the platform and used our tech to collect petition signatures supporting Meals-on-Wheels and ultimately made a $250 donation.
  • We have four awesome interns coming on board for the summer. They are currently attending Penn State, Philadelphia University, Georgetown, and Temple, and we can’t wait to get them on board once the school year ends.
  • We’re also hiring on both the Sales and Tech side. Head on over to our Careers page and check them out. Please encourage any current college students you know to apply.

Thank you for taking the time to review our latest Grasshoots. For more information:
