Several years ago, Allegra in Traverse City launched its FootPRINT Fund®, which awards marketing communications and print services, through Allegra in Traverse City, to select applicant nonprofit organizations to help enhance their image, expand their services and extend their marketing communications and printing budgets.
The FootPRINT Fund® is available to any nonprofit group, association or charitable organization throughout the greater Traverse City area that meets the FootPRINT Fund® selection criteria.
Services are awarded at a maximum value of $1,500 per organization for the award year. Applicants may receive services in the value of the amount requested or in a lower amount depending on the number of applications in a given year.
Services include marketing planning, graphic design, printing, signs & banners, copying, bindery or automated mailing. Applicants are encouraged to reapply in the following year.
All awarded print and marketing communications services must be used between Jan 31, 2015 and March 31, 2015. Awards may only be used for projects originating during these dates and not to offset any existing balances due to Allegra.
To be considered for a FootPRINT Fund® award, submit a completed application form. You can submit an application here.
The application deadline is March 31, 2015. Applicants receiving an award will be notified in April 15, 2015.
Applications are reviewed by a panel of representatives from Allegra in Traverse City. The panel responds in writing to all applications that are submitted in accordance with the application deadline. Organizations should not assume an award has been given until such notification. Any eligible organization or association can apply and need not be a customer of Allegra in Traverse City.
Award recipients are selected based upon how the print services will be used to further the organization’s goals, including:
