Applications are now being accepted for the 2019 McGuffin Grant, created by Chicago-based McGuffin Creative Group to help nonprofits improve their marketing communications and further their missions. Now in its ninth year, The McGuffin Grant provides creative strategies and design solutions to a worthy 501(c)(3) working to help people or the planet.

Applications for the 2019 grant are available at and must be submitted by Monday, April 15.

Launched in 2011, The McGuffin Grant gives one nonprofit recipient per year the expertise and guidance of the McGuffin team, totaling $25,000 worth of work. The scope of that work is defined by the client’s needs and goals, whether they include building a more compelling brand, launching a fundraising campaign or building awareness.

“The grant is our way of leveraging our company’s time and talents in the service of nonprofits making a difference in our communities,” says McGuffin Creative Group President Chris Sculles. “Our goal is to make the biggest impact we can in the vitality and well-being of an organization.”

The 2018 McGuffin Grant was awarded to Bernie’s Book Bank, a nonprofit dedicated to sourcing, processing and distributing quality children’s books to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers and school-age children throughout Chicagoland.

Founded in 2004 and located in Chicago’s West Loop, McGuffin Creative Group provides creative services and marketing consulting for clients including Mayo Clinic, GE Healthcare, Bank of the West, CUNA Mutual Group, Allstate and more.
