STRATFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CyberAlert LLC is now accepting applications for its 2015 PR Grants Program that awards free media monitoring services to selected not-for-profit organizations that apply.
The non-profits receive one year of free CyberAlert 5.0 online news monitoring, which monitors more than 55,000 online news sources in most every language in 191 countries. Grant recipients can opt to also receive either social media monitoring or U.S. TV news monitoring.
Interested non-profit organizations should apply before Dec. 31 using the online application form on CyberAlert's website.
The retail value of each grant ranges between $3,000 and $6,000. CyberAlert expects to award 15 or more media monitoring grants in 2015 with total retail value to exceed $50,000.
Sara Bracken, associate, strategic engagement and communications for the Colorado Education Initiative, a 2014 recipient of a PR grant, praised the benefits of CyberAlert’s service.
“CyberAlert captures all media mentions in news outlets, blogs, online newsletters and social media. It has helped the organization monitor trends, create robust clip reports, and engage with new social media users,” Bracken stated. “The daily email digest is a great way to stay on top of our media coverage and helps to ensure we are monitoring and engaging in real time.”
Almost 200 non-profit organizations have benefited from the PR Grants since 2004. CyberAlert has awarded grants to charitable organizations in education, healthcare services and research, the environment, youth development, recreation, and other public services.

“The PR Grants Program is CyberAlert's social responsibility program — our way of saying 'Thank you' and providing a service to organizations that help the community and can benefit from our services,” said CyberAlert President and CEO William Comcowich.
The company’s media monitoring services are used by corporations, government agencies and non-profit organizations throughout the world to conduct more than 2,000 ongoing daily searches for public relations, corporate and brand reputation management, competitive intelligence, market intelligence, and trademark infringement.
