Free PR help for nonprofits


Are you a 501(c)3 organization, benefit company, or b-corporation interested in learning how you might qualify for free PR counsel? Then apply for one of Hearsay’s #PRitforward grants before time runs out! Applications are due on September 12, 2016.

At Hearsay, we believe businesses of all sizes should receive revenue-generating exposure, credibility, and attention in the marketplace. Especially those that give back. Which is why we are launching the #PRitforward grants, a series of grants designed to enable nonprofits, benefit companies, and b-corporations to get off the ground publicity-wise through pro bono public relations counsel.

We’ll be accepting applications until September 12. To apply click here, and tell us about what makes your foundation, nonprofit, or b-corporation unique, how pro bono PR counsel can help you, and why we should pick you. Show off the work you’re already doing and all your crazy plans to do whatever it is you do bigger and better. Projects will be scored based on innovation, planning, need, and mission. Find out more here.

The #PRitforward grants are designed for U.S. residents who are 15 years or older. Candidates also must be open to sharing the outcome of their project with Hearsay by contributing at least two posts on the site.

The winners of this year’s #PRitforward grants will be announced on the Hearsay blog and social media feeds on September 26.

In addition to a kickass PR strategy and access to a group of PR rock stars who will be serving as advisors, winners also may receive social media analysis, community engagement plans, event planning guidance, and more.
