Signarama awarded over $5,000 in free signage this year to twelve nonprofit groups. These nonprofit groups were recipients of grants ranging from $100 to $2,000. The Platinum grant ($2,000) recipient this year was Habitat for Humanity. Each year there is an application process for any nonprofit, or school to request signage for their offices, stores, schools or events. Signarama is happy to support the community in this way, and hopes their program continues to grown year over year.
