All not-for-profit organizations worldwide are eligible to receive a 2015 PR Grant except previous recipients. Interested non-profit organizations should apply before December 31 using the online application form on CyberAlert's website.
Since the start of the PR Grants Program's in 2004, CyberAlert has awarded nearly 200 media monitoring grants to various non-profits. The grants are given to a wide range of charitable organizations in education, healthcare services and research, the environment, youth development, recreation, and other public services.

Child Trends, a non-profit that provides research and communications on issues affecting young children, was awarded a 2014 PR grant and has benefited greatly from the program, according to Frank Walter, the organization's vice president of communications.
"We rely daily on CyberAlert to spot mentions of Child Trends in media stories in the U.S. and around the world," Walter said. "They do a great job of catching and sharing our news and are a valuable resource for the success of our communications function."
William Comcowich, president and CEO of CyberAlert, said he's happy to see the grants program is still helping non-profits worldwide after 11 years running.
"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," Comcowich said.
