Wow – we’re honored to have been granted a LIFETIME of free email marketing and communications service from Emma!

This gift comes as part of the 2014 Emma 25, a national program run by email marketing service provider Emma, Inc., which annually awards 25 charitable organizations free email marketing tools for the lifetime of the nonprofit. Upstream Arts was selected this year out of hundreds of applicants.

“These small nonprofits are doing some pretty big things, and every year when we bring more organizations into the Emma 25 fold, we’re amazed by the many ways that good people are helping to make the world a better place,” notes Emma CEO Clint Smith. “It’s our hope that by helping these organizations manage their email communications, they can better connect with their donors and volunteers and improve the lives of people in their communities even more.”

Emma is a Web-based email marketing software company based in Nashville, Tennessee. Now in its 11th year, the Emma 25 program gives deserving nonprofits a free Emma account, an email template design and a lifetime of email service, all at no cost. Emma 25 honorees also receive unlimited support and account help, and access to special classes on mastering the fundamentals of email marketing.

Upstream Arts is so grateful to Emma for the honor. This support will allow us to reallocate valuable resources to other aspects of our work, ultimately toward greater and wider impact. We couldn’t be more thrilled!
