15 Non-Profits to Receive CyberAlert PR Grants of Free Media Monitoring Service

CyberAlert, Inc. today named 15 non-profit organizations as recipients of its annual PR Grants Program.

The 15 non-profits will receive one free year of CyberAlert 5.0 online news monitoring service, which monitors 55,000+ online news sources in 250+ languages from 191 countries. In addition to online news monitoring, grant recipients can also opt to receive either social media monitoring or U.S. TV news monitoring free for one year.

The selected non-profit organizations provide services in health, early childhood services, education, the environment, technology, justice and equality, and veteran services. While most of the grant recipients offer services on a national or international scale, CyberAlert for the first time also awarded grants to statewide organizations in recognition of the important local services they provide and their need to monitor news and social media.

“We’re delighted to provide these worthy organizations with a top-of-the-line, fully integrated PR tool that they can use to track and measure their impact in news and social media worldwide in the coming year,” stated William J. Comcowich, President and CEO of CyberAlert.

The 2014 award recipients are headquartered in nine different states — California (5), New York (2), Virginia, Maryland, Colorado, Connecticut, Oregon, New Jersey, and Texas — and one organization located in Geneva, Switzerland.

The grants help non-profits like Child Trends, a 2014 recipient from Bethesda, MD, build its capacity to accurately track and clip media coverage. Child Trends, which provides research and data on youth issues, relies on media coverage to disseminate its research findings to a broad audience. The organization will use CyberAlert’s media monitoring service to aggregate media coverage of its research and share clips with its constituencies, in part to help gather support for the launch of its Child Trends Hispanic Institute.

The total retail value of this year’s grants program exceeds $50,000. Since beginning the PR Grants program in 2004 as its corporate social responsibility and philanthropy program, CyberAlert has awarded nearly 200 media monitoring grants to non-profit organizations, with a retail value of more than half a million dollars.

CyberAlert awarded 2014 grants to the following non-profit organizations:
