It's hard to believe that our annual CreateAthon is only a month away. This will be Riggs Partners' 19th year of pro bono magic, and my personal third. It's interesting that even though you've done it before, you still get the night-before-the-first-day-of-school-jitters every year. You truly never know exactly what to expect. But every year, it's just as exciting, intense and rewarding as before.
The unfortunate reality is that most nonprofits can't afford professional marketing services, making it difficult for them to convey their purpose and move their mission forward.
That's where we come in.
For one day (24 hours of hands-on work, plus presentations afterwards), we work around the clock to produce a wide range of marketing materials that are as unique as each nonprofit we serve. And remarkably, CreateAthon as a national nonprofit organization has generated more than $24 million in pro bono marketing services for over 1,300 organizations.
CreateAthon plans to deliver $100 million in pro bono marketing services to the nonprofit marketplace by 2020. You can learn more about that here.
In the meantime, take a glimpse through last year's event in the SlideShare below and be on the lookout for more information about our upcoming event on Oct. 20-21.
