As our community and local businesses face difficult times, the McDuffie Progress has created an Advertising Matching Program that will offer $50,000 of marketing dollars to local businesses in McDuffie County and the surrounding areas. Every dollar, from $200 to $5,000, invested by the local business will be matched by the Advertising Matching Program, based on approval and availability.
Matching funds may be used for print advertising in the McDuffie Progress, online advertising on Mcduffieprogress.com, or for one of our targeted digital marketing campaigns.
Matching funds are open to any local business in need of support during the COVID-19 crisis.
Multiple Advertising Matching Partnerships will be awarded now through July 30th, 2020. All advertising dollars must be used during those months and cannot be carried forward into future months.
