TORONTO - April 27, 2011: c-Seven, a full-service Web company serving a wide array of clients in IT, many of whom are not-for-profits, is pleased to announce the c-Seven Helping Hands Grant program. This is a unique program designed to help charities and not-for-profits harness the power of the Web to better promote their cause and mission, and also help them simplify online interaction with their audience.
c-Seven clients include such organizations as Girl Guides of Canada, Recycling Council of Ontario, National Youth Orchestra of Canada, and the Ontario Genomics Institute.
“Having worked with many charities and not-for-profits over the years, we have seen the difference that a well planned and professionally executed Web strategy can make to an organization’s success,” said Simon McCaffrey, President of c-Seven. “This is a great opportunity for these organizations.”
McCaffrey said c-Seven is announcing three separate groups of grants: three grants of $10,000 each, three of $5,000 each, and three of $2,000 each. This makes over $50,000 worth of grants in the program. The grants are available to any registered not-for-profit or charity organization with operations in Canada. c-Seven will match the organization dollar-for-dollar up to a maximum of the grant that has been awarded.
