The Causality Brand Grant is a services grant; the organization will receive the amount of the grant in services that Causality staff will perform under the scope of work of the awarded grant.
Causality offers both full (pro bono) and matching (partial, funding requirement of 50%) service grants to help nonprofits and good causes access Causality services at no or low cost. Causality helps organizations build their “toolbox” of dynamic and sustainable communications elements, and empowers them to use these tools, thus elevating their brands and enhancing their ability to serve.
A full (pro bono) grant recipient receives branding/marketing services at no cost for the services requested.
A matching (partial, funding requirement of 50%) grant provides a portion of the value of creative/marketing services at no cost to the organization for the scope of services requested. The organization is required to fund half the value of the services requested. Funding can come from the organization or from other sources.
Many past matching grant recipients have leveraged the matching grant opportunity to approach donors, sponsors or funders to fund the match—allowing them to receive the full scope of services at no cost to their organization. Causality provides consultation and matching grant documentation to help an organization in approaching potential funders. Should an organization be interested in pursuing this as a means to receive branding/marketing/interactive services for the organization at no cost, Causality will be happy to assist.
