Wishes DO come true!

March 20, 2014

Wingard Creative has selected six nonprofit organizations to benefit from its first round of  “The Wishing Well,” a pro-bono program that will award $50,000 in creative services to nonprofit organizations this year. The winning organizations are City Rescue Mission, First Coast No More Homeless Pets, Kimberly’s Center for Child Protection — The Marion County Children’s Advocacy Center, OneJax, The Seaside Playgarden, and St. Johns Riverkeeper.

“We received more than 50 applications for the first round of The Wishing Well, and some applications came from as far away as Ocala and Orlando,” says Christopher Ball, CEO of Wingard Creative. “We spent dozens of hours reading through the applications, interviewing finalists and discussing each organization’s mission with our team. We are honored to partner with these deserving organizations to provide graphic design, web development, strategic planning and media strategy services.

The recipients will receive awards of various sizes, based on the scope of need stated in their applications. The cumulative total of all awards for the first round is $32,750.

“It was very difficult to narrow down more than 50 applications to just six winners,” says David Wingard, founder and Chief Creative Officer of Wingard Creative. “After meeting with some of the individuals who run these nonprofits, though, I feel very confident about the value of the work we can provide.”
