Applications are now being accepted for the 2022 McGuffin Grant, created by Chicago-based marketing and advertising agency McGuffin Creative Group, to help a 501(c)(3) nonprofit further its mission with $30,000 in creative services.
An online application for the 2022 grant is available at mcguffincg.com/grant and must be submitted by September 14, 2022. The grant is open to any 501(c)(3) organization.
Launched in 2011, The McGuffin Grant gives one nonprofit recipient per year the expertise and guidance of the McGuffin team, totaling $30,000 in work. The scope of that work is defined by the client’s needs and goals, which might include building a more compelling brand, launching a fundraising campaign or designing materials to establish your brand.
“The breadth of organizations we’ve worked with in the grant’s first 11 years has been very gratifying,” says McGuffin Creative Group President Chris Sculles. “There are so many groups out there working against great odds to make a difference for people and the planet. McGuffin is fortunate to be able to do something to help that vibrant ecosystem.”
The 2021 McGuffin Grant was awarded to Marbleseed (formerly Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES)). The group was seeking support in better communicating its commitment to organic and regenerative farming and its mission for equity throughout the food system.
Founded in 2004, McGuffin Creative Group provides a range of marketing services, including branding, digital communications and print communications, to clients in the banking, financial services and healthcare industries.
