2017 BRAND ADOPTION GRANTS
We are now accepting applications from eligible Member programs for funds that can be used to cover the cost of brand-related expenses, including, but not limited to the development of a branded website, freelance design work, business cards, letterhead and items produced to support your brand launch. For most programs, the grant amount will be enough to cover the cost of developing a branded website through our brand partner OneEach Technologies. Plus, your program can be eligible even if you have already officially adopted, or if you adopt between now and the application deadline of December 8, 2017.
Benefits of adopting the Meals on Wheels brand include:
- An instantaneous and strong visual tie to the national movement, which will help you leverage all Meals on Wheels exposure across the country to make your program's voice even louder
- Affordable, branded stationery design and printing through the Print & Design Shop
- Free, unlimited use of all the photos in our Photo Library
- Significantly reduced costs on a robust, mobile responsive website (templates shown below) and ongoing support through our exclusive partnership with OneEach Technologies
Grants are available to support Members in good standing that have or will adopt the Meals on Wheels brand for their local program by the December 8 application deadline. Even if your program has already adopted, it is still eligible to receive funding to further support brand implementation. Programs that have previously received a Brand Grant are not eligible at this time. See more information on eligibility and terms here
To apply, eligible programs must submit an application through Meals on Wheels America's Online Grant System, along with a signed license agreement. It is important to note that if your program name is not in the form of "Meals on Wheels (geographic location)" – e.g., Meals on Wheels Springfield – you must also submit a copy of your DBA (Doing Business As) document from your state by December 8, 2017.
