One Call Now is encouraging non-profit organizations to take advantage of the opportunity to apply for a two-year grant for free group communication services.

Launching a massive phone tree to make calls or finding volunteers to send out notifications can be labor intensive and time consuming. Non-profit organizations need a fast, easy way to quickly disseminate important information. One Call Now simplifies this process by creating a system to effectively contact members through group voice calls, text messages, or emails. For a limited time, non-profit organizations can apply for a grant through the Communication and Resource Endowment (C.A.R.E.) program to be awarded with two years of free service.

These services save organizations precious time and money. Instead of having staff laboring over the phone making calls and hoping they don’t forget someone, or shelling out funding for printing and postage to send flyers, non-profits can utilize One Call Now to access reliable, cost-effective communication. Common uses include: notifying members about last-minute postponements or cancellations, recruiting volunteers, raising awareness about upcoming events, welcoming new members, or providing gentle reminders about fundraising opportunities.

“Effective communication is essential for any organization,” says Lisa Eifert, Senior Vice President of Marketing. “We make this process even easier by providing reliable communication services so organizations can focus on serving communities and fulfilling their mission. With One Call Now, sending a message to a group of any size is simple and fast. Whether using voice calls, texts, emails, or a combination of methods, non-profits can quickly disperse important information in a short time.”

Through the C.A.R.E. program, grants are being awarded to three deserving 501(c)3 organizations based on merit and need. Groups selected will receive two years of free services to support their needs and keep members informed and engaged. Previous recipients rave about how One Call Now has benefited their operations.

One Call Now is accepting grant applications through Friday, July 13, 2018. Organizations must have 501(c)3 status to be eligible to apply. Grant recipients will be announced by July 30, 2018. To apply, simply fill out the pre-registration form online.

*This is for non-profit agencies only. We have a separate program for faith-based communities. Those grants have already been issued for 2018. Check back January 2019 to apply for those grants.
