The 12th annual Emma 25

The time for Emma 25 has come and gone, my friend.

We close out each year by recognizing the hard work of small nonprofits who are doing big things in their communities, awarding them an Emma account to send to up to 5,000 contacts for free. The 2015 selections have already been made, but check back here in November 2016 to apply.
Meet this year's honorees.

What’s Emma 25?

Emma 25 is an annual program (now in its twelfth year) in which we give away a lifetime of our free email marketing service to 25 small nonprofits. Meet some past Emma 25 honorees

How does Emma 25 work? Nonprofits simply apply for an Emma account, and Emma staff select the honorees from among all the deserving applicants and award each with a lifetime of free Emma service.

  • How long do I have to apply?

    The 2015 selections have already been made, but check back here in November 2016 to apply.

  • Who’s eligible?

    If you’re a 501(c)(3) (or have applied to be one) and have 10 or fewer full-time employees, congrats — you're eligible. Existing Emma customers are welcome to apply, and we happily accept applications from nonprofits around the world.

  • What do honorees get?

    Emma 25 honorees receive free Emma service for a lifetime, including:

    • A fully featured Emma account
    • Up to 5,000 contacts per month
    • Unlimited surveys & forms
    • Unlimited support and account help
    • Special classes to master the fundamentals of email marketing
    • Fun Emma goodies
  • How will I know if my organization has been chosen?

    We'll send an email announcing the honorees in mid-December.

  • What if I don’t have an email list? Can I still apply?

    Yes! Emma comes with web signup forms so visitors to your site can subscribe easily. Also, Emma is a permission-based service. That means we help you stay in touch with folks who’ve asked to receive updates from you, but we don't provide (or let you send email to) lists that you’ve purchased or rented.
