Trio Solutions (TRIO), a Mount Pleasant-based marketing communications agency, invites Lowcountry-area nonprofits to apply for the 8th annual CreateAthon, scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 23.
CreateAthon is a collaborative, 24-hour creative blitz that changes the impact of nonprofits and the lives of creative thinkers.
TRIO, the official CreateAthon agency for the Lowcountry area, will provide marketing services to nonprofit organizations on a pro-bono basis from 8 a.m. Thursday to 8 a.m. Friday.
The selected nonprofits should have little or no marketing budgets.
The deadline for 2014 CreateAthon applications is Friday, Aug. 15, at 5 p.m. TRIO will select five local organizations and will announce the winners by Sept. 1.
“CreateAthon is an innovative way for our team to give back to the Lowcountry and help organizations share their stories,” says Caitlin Ramsey, TRIO’s CreateAthon coordinator.
“Many nonprofits struggle for essential business-related funding and money for marketing is often the first to be overlooked.
“We’re thrilled to offer our time and creative talents to help organizations that make such a positive impact on our community.”
Beneficiaries receive deliverables such as: marketing and fundraising plans, logos, websites, banners, postcards, brand identity packages, website assessments and social media plans.
