Herron Gives Back

Herron Gives Back Initiative

Helping the community has been a core value for Herron Printing & Graphics since its creation in 1982. The Herron Gives Back Initiative is designed to provide in-kind support to nonprofit organizations that support those in need in the greater Washington area where our employees and customers live and work.


To help further the mission of deserving nonprofit organizations by providing valuable print and marketing services to help generate awareness in the community, find new donors and/or expand the relationship with existing donors.

Herron Gives Back Services

Total services awarded will include a maximum value of $15,000 per year. Services include graphic design, printing, copying, bindery and mailing (excluding postage). All awarded services must be used between January 1 and December 31 of the year awarded. Awards may be used for any projects originating during these dates and cannot be used to  offset any existing balances due to Herron Printing & Graphics.

To Become a Candidate

To magnify the value of our gifts, the number of recipients will be limited. To become a candidate, submit application by October 15 each year. All applications will be included on the Herron Gives Back ballot. Herron staff, clients, and vendors will vote during the holiday season and the top vote getters will receive an in-kind gift of Herron Printing & Graphics and/or marketing services during the upcoming year.
