TrestleMedia Community Grant Initiative
Empowering community organizations with accessible and professional web technologies.
The TrestleMedia Community Grant Initiative is a service-based grant program created in April 2016 with the intention of providing valuable web services for small community organizations. Through pro-bono work, our team of experts are able to provide organizations with powerful new tools. Utilizing their expertise in interface design, responsive application development, content strategy planning and beyond, the TrestleMedia team gives back to community initiatives they are inspired by.
Each grant cycle TrestleMedia will offer up to 100 hours of technology services to a small community organization selected by the staff. Depending on the needs of the grant applicants, multiple grants may be awarded.
What Inspires Us?
At the beginning of this year, each staff member at TrestleMedia was asked to identify areas of need in our community that they would like their services to help support. Each area of need was grouped into the categories listed below.
Each grant cycle we will offer a grant to community organizations that are focused in the selected area of need.
- Violence Prevention (including youth-specific initiatives, gun control)
- Human Services (family services for adolescent parents, ethnic & immigrant centers, homeless centers, LGBT centers)
- Youth Development
- Civil Rights (including social action & advocacy)
- Arts, Culture and Humanities
The grant cycle is open to organizations that service ALL areas of need.
