Discover Quincy is a Destination Marketing Organization funded by an appropriation from the City of Quincy that works in partnership with the Quincy Chamber of Commerce to attract visitors to our community. In 2016, we partnered with 15 organizations to create marketing collateral and with 54 organizations to promote local events. In recognizing that many of our partnering organizations are operated by volunteers with limited resources, Discover Quincy is dedicating $20,000 to support their marketing and event needs. Quincy based organizations are welcome to apply for a grant up to $2,000 to be used for marketing of their organization or to support an event during the 50 Days of Freedom scheduled for June 10 - July 29, 2017. 

Examples of applicable projects: 
Marketing: In 2016, Discover Quincy did the design work and paid for the printing of rack cards for Quincy Militia and Quincycles. As new schedules are coming out for 2017, these projects are eligible for grant funding as well as design support. 

Event: The Wollaston Hill Neighborhood Association debuted Porchfest in 2016. Discover Quincy did the design work and paid for printing for flyers, banners and other event expenses such as advertising, insurance and website maintenance.

Application Deadline is March 1, 2017. Awards will be distributed at the Discover Quincy Annual Meeting on March 8, 2017.
