)-- SIGNARAMA Downtown has launched the 7th annual Signs of Support grant program. Applications will be accepted now through January 18, 2013. SIGNARAMA Downtown will award $10,000 of free or discounted signage and/or services to non-profit and civic organizations in the Louisville area.
“From the onset of our business, we have tried to be good stewards for the community,” said Maggie Harlow, owner of Sign-A-Rama Downtown. “It is exciting to offer this grant for the seventh year and to see the many great organizations in Louisville – who are all worthy of support – come forward.”
Signs of Support aims to support groups’ missions through the replacement or creation of effective, affordable signage. Last year, the Signs of Support program awarded 26 area non-profit organizations free or discounted signage or services. Recipients included: Adelante; Alzheimer’s Association; American Heart Association; Backside Learning Center; Best Buddies; Breaking New Grounds; Coalition of the Homeless; EDGE Outreach; ElderServe; Family Scholar House; Food Literacy Project; Hand in Hand Ministries; Home of the Innocents; Housing Partnership; Interfaith Paths to Peace; KentuckyShow!; Leadership Louisville; Lincoln Elementary School; National Association of Women Business Owners Louisville chapter (NAWBO); The Parklands of Floyds Fork; and Phoenix Hill Neighborhood.
Grants vary from discounts on services to 100% free signage and services. Through Signs of Support, groups can request signs for events and can include interior or exterior, temporary or permanent needs. Businesses are eligible to apply for the Signs of Support program if they are a local non-profit organization, local affiliate of registered charities, local non-government civic organization or organization within the Jefferson County Public Schools system.
“It is always hard to choose which causes we award with a grant. The Louisville community is full of good people who are doing wonderful work. In order to qualify for the grant, a cause should inspire us to share in their success,” said Harlow.
Applications will be accepted now through January 18, 2013. To download an application, visit www.signaramadowntown.com or www.Facebook.com/SignsLouisville. For questions regarding the Signs of Support application, call 502-585-4099.
