THE 13TH ANNUAL EMMA 25

SEND SOME EMAILS, DO SOME GOOD.

It’s not time for Emma 25 quite yet.

We close out each year by recognizing the hard work of small nonprofits doing big things in their communities, awarding 25 of them with a free Emma account to send to up to 5,000 contacts. We’ll be announcing this year’s honorees in the very near future. Stay tuned, and in the mean time meet some past Emma 25 honorees!

How is works

Previous Honorees

About Emma

Nonprofits simply apply for Emma 25. Our staff will review all of the eligible applications and award 25 of them with a free Emma Pro account for up to 5,000 contacts.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO APPLY?

We're accepting nominations through Tuesday, December 6, but why dilly-dally? It just takes 10 minutes.

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 a free Emma Pro account 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.

Share Emma 25 on Facebook & Twitter.

We’re honoring this great group of nonprofits with a free Emma account for life. Get to know them, won’t you?
