At Accord, we cultivate a community where Christ-centered organizations, churches, and individuals leverage their combined learning to achieve the best in relief and development.
Our members help each other reach their full potential by operating in community—sharing knowledge, skills, and support with one another. Our members are not limited to their own learning curve—they have ready access to the collective knowledge of 110,000 employees that collectively leverage over $5 billion of resources annually.
GIK standards — Accord Network’s Gifts-in-Kind standards became the “first” among the NGO community and have been referenced by InterAction, USAID, and the IRS.
Accord Alliances — Our members band together to facilitate learning and collaboration through alliances. Current alliances include the Gifts-in-Kind Alliance, Accord WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) Alliance, Accord Advocacy Alliance, and the Accord Research Alliance.
Annual Learning Events —We host Executive Retreats and the annual OneAccord Forum.
