Twelve years ago, Allegra Marketing Services launched its FootPRINT Fund®, which awards grants for marketing, print and sign services to select nonprofit organizations to help enhance their image, expand their services and extend their marketing communications and printing budgets. Community support is a core value at Allegra. Our hope is that the FootPRINT Fund® we have established will help our local organizations and associations leave their “footprints” in our community through increased awareness and visibility.
The FootPRINT Fund® is available to any nonprofit group, association or charitable organization throughout the greater Louisville area that meets the FootPRINT Fund® selection criteria.
Allegra will review the applications and award service grants up to $2,500 to select recipients. We will set aside the grant money for the receiving organization to use throughout 2017. When the organization partners with Allegra on a project, Allegra will match $.50 on every $1 spent up to the amount of the awarded grant. For example, if a recipient places an order in the amount of $1,000, Allegra will pull $500 from their grant money pool and apply it toward the cost of the project. Recipients must use their grant money before December 31, 2017. Grants are only good through the year they were awarded. Any asking organization must re-apply annually. Service grants may be awarded in the amount requested or in a lower amount, depending on the number of applications.
FootPRINT Fund grants may be used towards any in house Allegra service including creative and graphic design services, direct mail, printing, signs & banners, or mailing services.
The 2017 FootPRINT Fund® grant application is available now through January 31, 2017. Recipients will be announced and grants will be awarded on February 10, 2017. To apply, please fill out the form below.
