Does your non-profit rely or need grant money to operate effectively and grow? We understand the dire need, as our client, the Colorado Cross Country Ski Association, relies on us to secure grant money each year.
For the third year in a row, 10 Pound Gorilla has helped secure the maximum $25,000 from the Colorado Tourism Office (CTO). This money is critical to the CCCSA marketing budget. 10 Pound Gorilla has worked tirelessly over the last six years developing innovative marketing programs to help the CCCSA stand out among other grantees. The CTO was attracted to the CCCSA Season Punch Pass Program, as it provided an economical way for winter travelers to visit various regions of Colorado and exhibited cooperation among CCCSA members. The Punch Pass provides 14 trail passes at 7 resorts throughout Colorado for only $99.
Is your agency using creative, out-of-the-box thinking to make yourself attractive to granting organizations?
As you know, competition for grant dollars grows increasingly more competitive each year. This year, the annual CTO grant program received more than 50 applications for over $1.1 million in grant requests. Only $600,000 was available to grant. In fact, several former and new grantees were turned down. We feel fortunate our programs helped secure $25,000 of the $600,000 for the CCCSA. Having the right partner who can help secure significant and competitive grants is a must-have for non-profits.
