Request a Grant Writer

In-kind marketing and consultation services valued at $25,000 to a USA nonprofit organization that is working to make a lasting and positive impact on the community it serves. Funding is intended for strategy assistance and design solutions to help the organization communicate its needs more effectively. Strategists, designers, writers and other members of the team will work with the recipient organization for three months on a project or projects that best fit their goals — like an identity redesign, a fundraising direct mail campaign, a brochure or a website refresh.

Whether an applicant's goal is energizing fundraising efforts, sharpening an advocacy message or engaging a constituency, McGuffin Creative Group works with them to pinpoint the right tools for the job. Then they bring those tools to life through visuals and words. All the work delivered — from logo and identity systems to websites to promotional materials — is backed by a thorough exploration of where the applicant is today and where they want to go.
