CyberAlert today named the Women Veterans Business Center, The Council on Health Research for Development, and Point Foundation as the first three nonprofit organizations to receive a year of free media monitoring as part of the company’s 2014 PR Grants Program. The media monitoring company has also extended its application deadline for the program until Jan. 7, 2014.
All nonprofit organizations worldwide are eligible to apply for the 2014 PR Grants Program, and can enter their application through CyberAlert’s secure online form.
The selected organizations will receive one year of free online news monitoring, with the option of social media or TV news monitoring.
The three organizations were chosen for their dedication to community service, and will use the media monitoring grants to raise awareness and support for their causes, according to CyberAlert President and CEO Bill Comcowich.
“We’re honored to include these nonprofits in our grants program, and hope to receive more applications with similar values and goals during our deadline’s extension,” Comcowich said.
