Neotrope Celebrates 28th Anniversary by Offering PR Grants and Discounts Program for U.S. Charitable Organizations

TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 3, 2011 — Neotrope today announced it has, as part of the company’s 28th anniversary this year, expanded its discount program for U.S.-based non-profit organizations “doing good,” and also pre-announced the 2011 Neotrope PR Grants program. California-based Neotrope will provide discounts of 28% off to those charitable organizations needing assistance with public relations and online marketing. Neotrope’s Send2Press(R) Newswire service will be providing the discounts on targeted news distribution, press release writing, and online promotion solutions.

“Due to the economy the two last years we were unable to provide our PR Grants Program in 2010,” said Neotrope CEO Christopher Simmons. “Thankfully, things are picking up, so we will be able to offer the grant program again for 2011, but in the meanwhile we’re extending these substantial discounts on our services to help non-profits ‘get the word out’ about their activities. We will be announcing our 2011 PR Grants Program over the next week.”

Information on the 2011 PR Grant Program will be posted to the above page on/about Jan. 6, 2011. The grants program will provide over $28,000 in value services to applicants chosen.
