Signs of Support Grant Program Launched for Charitable Organizations
Local Sign Company Celebrating 3rd Anniversary

[Ankeny, IA…]  To celebrate her third year in business, local sign company owner Kathy Evert of KJ Signs, LLC dba Signarama-Ankeny and YESCO Des Moines, announced a grant program to benefit local charitable organizations in Polk County.  “One of my goals when starting this business in 2016 was to give back to the community; I’m happy to launch our first Signs of Support grant program for the benefit of local charitable organizations in Polk County,” said Evert.
Signs of Support is intended to assist charitable organizations in replacing or creating effective, affordable signage and graphics for their mission. “I am excited to help people in the community that work hard at making this a better place to live,” said Evert.
Application forms are available from Signarama Ankeny and are due by August 31, 2019.  Awards will be determined by November 1st.  The types of signage eligible for consideration are:
FACILITY SIGNAGE – This is signage like office door markers, vinyl lettering on walls, windows and doors, interior directional signs, parking signage, donor recognition signs, reception or conference room signs, and even decorative banners or displays.

EVENT SIGNAGE – This is signage that an organization might use for an event like a fund-raiser or activity. For example, easel signs, yard signs, banners, retractable banners, and other temporary and re-useable signage to help promote an event or provide logistics.

IDENTIFICATION SIGNAGE – This is signage that is the primary signage for your facility, identifying your site and who you are. It might be a monument sign, flat sign for your building, or other type of identification.

VEHICLE GRAPHICS - Your vehicles can be an excellent way to advertise your mission. Examples include vehicle lettering, removable magnets, and partial and full wraps.

Grants are in the form of signage and discounts, not monetary awards. The awards are available through Signarama Ankeny exclusively and may not be transferred to another Signarama location.  A 501(c)3 designation letter is required of all applicants.  The signage project must be completed no later than March 31, 2020.  Up to $3000 will be available this first year in signage; Evert intends to grow the grant program as the business grows.  For more information, call 515.216.1240 or email
