Times Union Announces the Great $100,000 Giveaway

In November 2015, 10 local nonprofits will have the opportunity to share in $100,000 in granted advertising space in the Times Union.

As part of the Capital Region Gives editorial project, area nonprofits will be the focus of a special editorial section which will appear in the Times Union on November 19, 2015. Through their advertising support, the corporate community will come together for the benefit of the many nonprofits that do so much to help those in need.

According to Boston College’s Center for Corporate Citizenship’s 2014 State of Corporate Citizenship study, “The majority of executives view corporate citizenship as a way to achieve strategic corporate goals. It’s clear that executives understand the value of corporate citizenship and are investing in processes and programs that deliver both business and social value”.

Any nonprofit that has an ad in the special section will be eligible to win a share of the $100,000 grant. Voting to determine which nonprofit will win the grant will be held on timesunion.com after the release of the Capital Region Gives editorial section on November 19, 2015.

One-hour information sessions will be held at the Times Union on the following dates. To register for informational sessions or to learn more about the Great $100,000 Giveaway, call Charmaine Ushkow, Community Relations Manager for the Times Union, at (518) 454-5792.
