The JL Simmons Nonprofit PR Grants program was launched in 2000 to help promote worthy causes with a grant of in-kind donation of services. It was created by the late Dr. JL Simmons, PhD and Christopher Simmons.

“We are excited to finally bring this program back for 2023, after taking a couple of years off due to the pandemic and other events,” said Neotrope CEO Christopher Laird Simmons. “My dad and I started this grant to try to help worthy causes get the word out. This year it’s of special meaning to me, as it is also the 20th anniversary of my dad’s passing; and he is sorely missed.”

The deadline for applications is April 1, 2023, the 20th anniversary of Dr. Simmons’ passing.
