BROOKINGS – Angela Roden, owner of Allegra in Downtown Brookings announced the recipients of this year’s Allegra FootPrint Fund, which helps nonprofit organizations “leave a footprint” in the community by awarding print and graphic design services for promotional and informational materials. 

This year’s award recipients include: Altrusa International of Brookings, Brookings Area Camp Adventure, Brookings Area Habitat for Humanity, Brookings Area United Way, Brookings Arts Council, Brookings County 4-H, Brookings Domestic Abuse Shelter, Brookings Empowerment Project, Brookings Kiwanis Club, Brookings Regional Humane Society, Food for Thought Project, Mission Blueprint, Phi Upsilon Omicron Alumni, Satyagraba Institute,  The Shepherd’s Gift: GMI for HD, and Volunteer Service Bank.

The Allegra FootPrint Fund awards $5,000 annually to nonprofit organizations and associations seeking financial assistance for graphic design and printing of brochures, newsletters, forms, invitations, posters and other print communications. Applicants that qualify are eligible to receive up to $500 each.

Award recipients were selected by a review panel based on how print services will be used to further organization goals including service expansion, program enhancement and maximization of existing resources, as well as the organization’s innovation and resourcefulness.  

“Allegra in Brookings is proud to be part of a community that has so many fine organizations,” said Roden. “This year’s winners of the FootPrint Fund demonstrate the type of commitment and ingenuity that we are looking for in recipients of this award. We are honored to support them in their local efforts.”
