In-kind grants of creative and marketing services to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit, educational, and faith-based organizations and social enterprises to improve communications and marketing. The goal of the program is to help organizations strengthen their marketing and branding efforts through branding development, marketing strategies, website design, and creative services. Both full and partial grants are available.

Grants are fulfilled with services provided by Causality to the receiving organization. Services available include:

  • Brand assessment and development
  • Identity design or logo refresh
  • Name exploration/collaboration
  • Development of branded marketing materials
  • Targeted direct mail, appeals and membership campaigns
  • Fundraising communications and campaigns
  • WordPress web site design and development
  • Email marketing and social media integration
  • Event branding: galas, luncheons, festivals, etc.

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. Causality helps build a “toolbox” of dynamic and sustainable communications elements and empower applicants to use them—elevating their brand and enhancing their ability to serve. 

Full Grants

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.

Matching Grants

A matching (partial, funding requirement of 50%) grant recipient receives branding/marketing services at half the cost of the 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 grant recipients have utilized the matching grant opportunity for outside funding—allowing them to receive the full scope of services at no cost to their organization.
