MobileCause and CardConnect Strive to Set New Standards For Nonprofit Fundraising

CALABASAS, Calif., May 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MobileCause, a leading provider of cloud based fundraising and communication solutions for nonprofit organizations, and CardConnect, a payment processing and technology solutions provider, announced today a partnership that will fundamentally improve the way nonprofits accept donations.

The partnership will unite MobileCause's powerful cloud based products for nonprofits – crowdfunding, online giving, event fundraising tools, text to donate keywords – with CardConnect's low credit card processing rates, tokenized transactions, security and integrated suite of payment applications.

"Our partnership with CardConnect provides the key to achieving two of MobileCause's greatest priorities: allow nonprofits to keep a higher percentage of every donation, and process donor transactions with the highest degree of security," said Sean MacNeill, CEO of MobileCause. "With the technology integration between our two companies completed, we are already rolling out solutions that will have an immediate and positive impact for all organizations working with us."

Having the technology integration in place means that every donation that comes through MobileCause Merchant Services will be instantly encrypted and tokenized – removing the burden nonprofits face with PCI Compliance requirements and safeguarding them from a catastrophic data breach. Additionally, CardConnect ensures that every donation is processed at the lowest possible rate.

"What an exciting partnership this is for CardConnect. There are countless nonprofits that can do more good in the world if their processing rates were not so high, or if they used technology like mobile payment apps and recurring donation plans," added Jeff Shanahan, President and CEO of CardConnect. "MobileCause has cultivated an impressive reputation for their desire to revolutionize how nonprofits operate, and there is no doubt that together we will provide a boost to fundraising all over the country."
