The Boston Globe announced the launch of a grant called “Globe Readers and Non-Profits Together” (GRANT). A new initiative to award up to $20 million in free advertising to local 501(c)3 non-profits.
If you are a Boston Globe subscriber you will receive (or may have already received) a voucher by mail (or email for online subscribers) which allows you to support your favorite non-profit to receive free advertising dollars – at no cost to you. Seven-day newspaper subscribers’ vouchers are valued at $100; all other subscribers (including website-only readers) have been sent vouchers valued at $50. (Look for a silver envelope).
One of the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry’s supporters is Gathering Change, a non-profit group that brings together neighbors to help alleviate hunger, by raising awareness, facilitating the collection of spare change and other funds to give to local food pantries. Advertising would go a long way in advancing their mission.
