Signs By Tomorrow recently launched the Insignia Fund as part of a nationwide effort to help unite and strengthen local communities by awarding in-kind digital sign and graphics services for promotional and informational materials. The national program is being managed locally by Signs By Tomorrow centers across the country.
Signs By Tomorrow centers will have the opportunity to use the Insignia Fund to annually award nonprofit organizations and associations seeking financial assistance for the design and creation of signage, graphics, posters, vehicle wraps and other visual communications tools.
“With a long history of community support at Signs By Tomorrow, we wanted to take this philosophy even further and provide our members with a road map for successful community relations campaigns,” says Signs By Tomorrow President Ray Palmer. “The Insignia Fund was created to help our centers reach out to nonprofits in their communities for assistance that may not have been possible otherwise.”
To be considered for an Insignia Fund award, nonprofit groups, associations and charitable organizations with a presence in a participating regional area must submit a completed application by set date. Award recipients are selected by a review panel based on how the services will be used to further organizational goals, including service expansion, program enhancement and maximization of existing resources, as well as the organization’s innovation and resourcefulness.
“This program is a way for us to increase our charitable footprints,” explained Palmer. “We feel that it is extremely important to reach out to those in need and help local organizations and associations make a difference nationwide.”
