No man is an island… the same goes for our company.
Trying to make a difference.
In January of this year, we announced a grant application opportunity for NFPs across the country. We named the grant “CR8 GR8” becuase we know many NFPs are doing great work and we wanted to give them the opportunity to enhance and elevate their images. The program was simple; Tripp Co. would award up to seven matching service grants and one full service grant (eight total) to organizations that applied. A full grant recipient was not guaranteed becuase one organization would need to receive 80% of the vote in order for us to take them on pro-bono. We received applications from all around the country including Portland and Hoboken, but a majority of them were for the full-grant and we only had one available for this year. The whole team at Tripp Co. read every application and several rounds of voting took place. In the end we ended up with a very deserving organization for the full grant and four matching grants. The recipients are below:

Over the coming months, we will share with you the work we get to do for these wonderful organizations and we’ll also tell you a little more about each one. Who knows, maybe their good works will move you to start an NFP of your own… crazier things have happened.
Since opening its doors in 2007, Tripp Co. Creative has held on to one main, core belief; doing good work for good people. In keeping with that theme, Tripp Co. Creative, Inc. is making efforts to help the community take another step forward by introducing the CR8 GR8 Creative Service Grant. Over the years Tripp Co. has worked with many non-profit organizations and they have always proudly offered reduced rates for registered non-profits. Tripp Co. will be offering up to eight service grants ranging from full grants to matching grants through the CR8 GR8 project. These grants are fulfilled with services, completed by Tripp Co. Creative, to the receiving organizations.
CR8 GR8 is a “GR8” opportunity for non-profit organizations to receive services at reduced to no cost, and for Tripp Co. to give back to the community. Tripp Co. makes it a point to not forget the organizations improving our community or the people who truly care and are always seeking to better the environment, society, or people and animal lives.
