Jewelers for Children (JFC) has announced the 2015 edition of their Local Grants program. JFC has set aside $100,000 to be used for 10 - $10,000 grants to local organizations. Independent jewelers will have an opportunity to nominate a local organization to receive one of these grants. Once a final list of nominated charities is compiled, the retailer will be responsible for motivating their constituents to vote for their charity through a Facebook based campaign on JFC’s page.
It will be up to the jeweler and the nominated charities to generate interest in their organization by securing votes through their own social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, e-mail blasts, and any other advertising opportunities available. JFC provides sample language for use on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as press releases that can be used to generate votes for their nominated charity.
