SHOREVIEW, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Deluxe Corporation Foundation is replacing the tedious nature of grant writing with the “Short & Tweet” campaign in which nonprofits can state their case in a mere 140 characters. Through this new Twitter campaign, small nonprofits can be nominated for a chance to receive a $10,000 grant.
The “Short & Tweet” Grants Program is a Twitter-based giveaway, through which the Deluxe Corporation Foundation will award $100,000 worth of grants – giving 10 deserving non-profits $10,000 each. The nominated organization must have a primary mission based in economic empowerment, creating tomorrow’s workforce, promoting financial literacy, crisis assistance or the arts. From now until Wednesday, Nov. 4, anyone can take to Twitter and use the hashtag #DeluxeCares to make a nomination.

“The Short & Tweet Grants Program is our way of celebrating those people who work tirelessly to support their communities through important philanthropic work,” said Amanda Brinkman, chief brand and communications officer for Deluxe. “Everything Deluxe does is focused on making life easier for small businesses and financial institutions, so why not have our foundation support the nonprofits making life easier for their communities and people in need?”
The Short & Tweet Grants Program is one part of a year-long celebration of Deluxe Corporation 100th anniversary. The Deluxe Corporation Foundation focuses on long-term solutions that help people, businesses, and communities thrive and grow. Since 1954, the foundation has donated more than $100 million to charitable organizations.
