In-kind grants of creative and marketing services to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit, educational, and service organizations and government agencies to improve communications and brand value. The goal of the program is to help organizations strengthen the marketing and branding efforts of successful applicants through brand development, marketing strategies, website design, and creative services.
The Causality Brand Grant is a service grant that encompasses the full range of brand marketing and creative services. Causality offers both full (pro bono) and matching (partial, funding requirement of 50%) service grants to help nonprofits and good causes access services at no or low cost. They help build a “toolbox” of dynamic and sustainable communications elements and empower the user—elevating a brand and enhancing the ability to serve. Organizations can benefit from the following:
Campaign development (awareness, messaging, capital, membership)
WordPress web site design and build
Digital/social media graphics
A full (pro bono) grant provides creative/marketing services, to be performed by Causality, at no cost to the organization for the scope of services requested.
A matching grant is partial pro bono with a funding requirement of 50%. Essentially, the matching grant recipient receives their requested project at half the cost. The organization must be able to contribute or raise a sum equal to the value of the match to be provided by Causality. The organization may fund their match from their own funds or may seek funding from other sources. Many grant recipients have utilized the matching grant opportunity to secure outside funding—allowing them to receive the full scope of services at no cost to their organization.
