LOS ANGELES, Calif., Nov. 15, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Neotrope(R), a brand identity, public relations, and marketing firm established Jan. 1983, announces its latest Non-Profit PR Grants Program for 2012. The firm is again donating $25,000 in free public relations and newswire services to worthy non-profit and charitable organizations to celebrate its 29th anniversary.

"The U.S. economy the past two years has been hard on small business, and even harder on small charities and non-profits. This PR Grant program is our way of supporting some of the numerous smaller organizations we feel need ongoing help to 'get the word out' about their worthwhile efforts," said Neotrope CEO and co-founder, Christopher Simmons. "We've been very helpful to numerous organizations to increase visibility both online and off, and hope to continue this program into the future."

Neotrope previously donated services as part of its Non-Profit PR Grants Program in 2011, 2009, 2005 and 2000. In 2010, Neotrope "adopted" various charities in lieu of providing the PR Grant program, and has provided discounted or free services to various non-profits for almost 30 years. Past recipients of the PR grant program include Children Awaiting Parents, Girls Write Now, Paws of Life Foundation, Special Equestrians, The Bob Moog Foundation, The Starlight Children's Foundation, The Native Voices Foundation, World Savvy, and many others.

Neotrope, and its service division Send2Press Newswire (, have also sponsored art benefits contributing to aid efforts for the homeless in Chicago, groups providing environmentally sustainable housing in areas of the world where disaster has left people without adequate shelter; and to orgs who raise money for AIDS orphans.
