What is the Solid Digital Impact Grant?

If you are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization looking to grow your digital presence, we encourage you to apply for our 2021 Digital Growth® Pro Bono Grant. Whether you need help with the look or functionality of your website, or a new strategy to increase digital engagement or attract more donors, we can help. This grant will be awarded at no cost as a pro bono service.

What To Expect

The recipient will work directly with a Solid Digital project manager and team and will receive the following services at no cost.

Three Months of Digital Growth®

Digital Growth® is our proven process of defining a single, unique index (Digital Value) to be used as a basis for strategizing, performing, and tracking actions to improve the outcomes of your digital efforts. Our Digital Growth® Program is an on-going engagement with the Solid Digital team to help improve an organization’s Digital Value. Program cycles operate on a 3-month schedule.

The digital experts at Solid Digital will guide you and your team through a series of 3 worksessions, as well as provide materials, accountability, high-fives and follow-up. Each month, team members will have action items assigned based on the objective and metrics decided upon in the kick-off strategic worksession.

40 Hours of Digital Support

A 40-hour support agreement will also be provided to assist your organization through the first stages of Digital Growth®. These hours can be used for over the course of our three-month engagement for anything related to our digital efforts. Examples include: website design, website tool integration, website development, SEO optimization, content creation, and Google analytics set-up and training.

These support hours will be provided by the internal specialists on the Solid Digital team.
