CHICAGO, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- McGuffin Creative Group, Inc., a Chicago-based graphic design and advertising firm, today announced it will begin accepting applications for its 2014 McGuffin Grant staring February 24, 2014. The McGuffin Grant, now in its fourth year, was created to provide creative strategies and design solutions to worthy 501(c)(3)s working to help people or the planet.
Applications for the 2014 grant are available at mcguffincg.com/grant and are due to the McGuffin Creative Group offices by Friday, April 18.
Launched in 2011, The McGuffin Grant gives one nonprofit recipient per year the expertise and guidance of McGuffin Creative Group's team of designers, copywriters and account executives for $25,000 worth of work. The scope of that work is defined by the client's needs and goals, whether they include building a more compelling brand, launching a fundraising campaign or building awareness.
"Given the state of the economy the last few years, we feel fortunate to be able to donate our agency's time and talents to a nonprofit client who can benefit from them," says Chris Sculles, McGuffin Creative Group's president. "Each of the last three years of the grant has been extremely rewarding in terms of the work we've been able to produce and the difference we've made for grant recipients."
The 2013 McGuffin Grant was awarded to San Diego-based Mama's Kitchen (mamaskitchen.org), an organization dedicated to preparing and delivering nutritious, comforting meals to the homes of men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS or cancer.
