Welcome to the Mobile Accord blog! We’ve been in business for a while now and we figured it’s time we join the blogosphere because:

  1. We love blogs!
  2. We love bloggers!
  3. We’ve spent the last two years building a top-notch mobile platform and we want to tell you all about it.
  4. We’ve also spent the last two years partnering with some fantastic people and organizations. We especially want to tell you about the great work they’re doing using mobile.

At Mobile Accord we believe that mobile technology can be used for more than just downloading the latest, greatest ringtones and wallpapers. We believe that mobile technology can help make a difference for important causes and issues that people care about. That’s why we’ve created tools and technology that help nonprofits, political organizations, universities, and cause-marketers leverage the power of a wide range of mobile technologies, including SMS (text messaging), PSMS (premium SMS), mobile content (ringtones, wallpapers, etc.), and WAP (mobile internet).

We’re helping groups like United Way, ASPCA, Harvard University, and IFAW (plus others!) successfully implement and integrate mobile into their everyday outreach and fundraising efforts – and we’re proud of it. We’re passionate about helping our customers achieve their missions and make an impact using mobile technology.

We’ve created this blog in order to share real-life examples of how mobile is being used for advocacy, education, fundraising, cause-marketing, and volunteerism. Our goal is to foster an environment of open dialogue, ideas, and resources for anyone interested in using technology to influence change.

We hope you’ll check back often and join us in creating a new culture of philanthropy!


We Make Mobile Easy

Mobile Accord can easily mobilize any part of an organization's existing outreach efforts - for example, distributing urgent action alerts, volunteer opportunities, or donation requests via text message.
