Local Collier County non-profit organizations will be spending less on printing and marketing services this year thanks to Allegra of Naples and their FootPRINT Fund.
Last year, Allegra granted $10,000 worth of printing and marketing services to 16 local agencies. This year, grants were increased to $12,000 in order to add more recipients. Each winning organization will receive a $500 or $1,000 grant to be used during the year of 2012.
Over 30 local organizations applied for the FootPRINT Fund and the winners were chosen according to need and overall budget. An independent judging panel, comprised of local business professionals, was created to select this year’s 19 winning organizations. The second annual FootPRINT Fund awards luncheon was held on December 6 at Sophia’s restaurant in Naples.
