Is your nonprofit in need of funds for web hosting? Fahrenheit Marketing in Austin might be able to meet the need.

Ricardo Casas, CEO of the Web design firm, recently announced his company will underwrite Web hosting for 500 charities through its FahrenHosting program.

The deadline to register for the program is Jan. 31.

“We wanted to make a small difference for a lot of organizations that serve our community. Having a website is vital for almost every charity now, but paying for Web hosting is yet another yearly expense for nonprofits that are trying to find the best use for every dollar they receive,” Casas said. “We chose to do this because we wanted to make keeping a website a little easier for nonprofit organizations that serve our state.”

Casas said if less than 500 nonprofits apply, all will receive Web hosting for a year. If more than 500 nonprofits apply, the staff will narrow the field based on the nonprofit’s need and scope.

To qualify for the program, organizations must currently have a functioning website, serve Texas in whole or in part, be a registered 501 (c) 3, and be willing to mention Fahrenheit Marketing as the Web host sponsor.

Casas said organizations can register for the FahrenHosting program by filing out the contact form at http://www.fahrenheitmarketing.com/contact-us/.

In addition, Fahrenheit Marketing is offering a $50,000 Web design grant to one lucky Austin charity. To register for the grant program for Austin-based nonprofits, visit www.fahrenheitmarketing.com/fahrengrant. The winner of the grant will be picked by the Fahrenheit staff and selection will be based on applicant need, reach and focus of the applicant, and how fun the project looks.

The FahrenHosting program won’t require nonprofit organizations to switch hosting services, but will instead pay for the hosting through whichever service the charity currently uses.
