This time next week, we’ll be burning the midnight oil over at Riggs Partners during CreateAthon 19. It seems like only yesterday that we pulled our first all-nighter for good, working 24 hours nonstop to deliver pro bono marketing projects for nonprofits and the important causes they represent.
As you may know, CreateAthon has grown organically and exponentially since we founded the program. We’ve served more than 150 different nonprofits in South Carolina. Plus, we’ve recruited more than 100 different marketing groups throughout North America as CreateAthon partners, all of whom have hosted CreateAthon events for nonprofits that otherwise would not be able to afford professional marketing services. To date, the program has delivered over $24 million of pro bono marketing service to the nonprofit marketplace.
What you may not know is that CreateAthon has recently become a national 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. Moving forward, the goal is to generate $100 million of pro bono service to nonprofits by 2020. That’s a big calling, and it needs human and capital resources to make it happen.
That’s why we’re asking for your consideration in pledging $1 an hour for each of the 24 hours our team will be working during CreateAthon next week. All of the proceeds will go to helping us bring more CreateAthon events to nonprofits in the US and beyond.
To pledge, just visit the RP Power of 24 fundraising page. You may choose to make a gift directly from this group page or make separate pledges on behalf of your favorite CreateAthoners!
Thanks for your ongoing support and encouragement of our efforts to serve nonprofits through CreateAthon. Together, we’re putting creative super powers to work in some pretty remarkable places!
