Portland-area nonprofits are invited to apply for Grady Britton’s 10th annual grant, this year with the option for $25,000 in-kind branding and marketing services, or 150 volunteer hours.
Portland, Ore., October 9, 2019 – One of Portland’s longest-standing marketing agencies, Grady Britton, is celebrating its 45th anniversary by giving back and giving more with a new twist on its annual grant program. This year marks the agency’s 10th anniversary of its annual grant, in which nonprofit organizations have an opportunity to work with the agency in a unique way. In honor of the anniversary, this year, Portland-area nonprofits have a choice for the type of help they can apply to: $25,000 in-kind marketing and branding expertise, or 150 volunteer hours, provided by Grady Britton staff. Organizations also have the option to apply for both. Grant applications are now open.
With the goal to build brands for companies making the world a better place, Grady Britton recognizes that some of the most impactful organizations in the Portland community don’t have the means to hire an agency for an extended period of time. That’s why Grady Britton developed the grant 10 years ago. The marketing grant covers $25,000 worth of Grady Britton’s internal time and can be applied to in-house services including branding, creative development, media planning/buying, public relations or any of the agency’s other services. New this year, Grady Britton will also award 150 volunteer hours to a nonprofit organization serving the greater Portland area. These hours can be applied to organizational needs, as they relate to typical volunteer activities. Organizations can apply online at grant.gradybritton.com. Applications are due Thursday, October 24.
The winner(s) of this year’s grant will join a group of past winners that include LIVE, Meals on Wheels People, S.M.A.R.T, Marathon Scholars, Community Warehouse, Friends of the Columbia Gorge and others. Each winner and campaign has been unique, yet all recipients are united by their passion of serving those in their community who need help the most.
