FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eyes On Your Mission Announces TWO Video Grant Recipients in 2022

Our team of five judges has been brimming with energy after reading the 101 applications that came in from nonprofit organizations around the globe. Our 2022 promise was to fund at least one project depending on the scope and location, but we chose two instead. Two nonprofits will receive pro bono services, and others might receive matching grants.

PRO BONO GRANT RECIPIENTS
Lotus House
Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council

HONORABLE MENTIONS
Zoe’s Dolls
Grey Team
Code/Art
The de Moya Foundation

MATCHING GRANT RECIPIENTS
TBD

NEXT STEPS: While we are now tapped out for pro bono services until Summer 2023, we have some staff willing to work for a portion of their normal rate. We are open to supporting THREE additional applicants through our matching grant program. Projects in the domestic USA are valued at $15,000 (+ travel), so matching grant recipients usually bring less than half to the table depending on the project scope, location and nature of the other projects we fund. If you’re interested in a matching grant, contact Jessica Kizorek directly @ 630-835-4811 jessica@twoparrot.com

We will also be approaching some of you in South Florida would could perhaps be aided by our college students that take our Filmmaking For Good each semester. They break up into groups of 4-5 students and have to pick a cause…why shouldn’t that be YOUR cause?? You already have a brief and summary, which is helpful for our college students.

Follow us on social!!! We’ll be posting behind the scenes imagery and notifications for next year’s grant through our social media platforms. The older we get, the more projects we hope to fund! Apply again next year!
