Several years ago, Allegra in Columbia launched its FootPRINT Fund®, which awards marketing communications and print services 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 Columbia area that meets the FootPRINT Fund® selection criteria.
Services are awarded at a maximum value of $1,000 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 January 21, 2016 and October 31, 2016. 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.
Applications are accepted from November 1, 2015 through December 18, 2015. Applicants receiving an award will be notified on January 18, 2016.
Applications are reviewed by a panel of representatives from Allegra in Columbia. 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 Columbia.
Award recipients are selected based upon how the print services will be used to further the organization’s goals, including:
