In 1998, Riggs Partners hatched CreateAthon®, a 24-hour marketing marathon delivering professional marketing to nonprofit organizations. Today it’s the origin story for a national nonprofit that has since gifted millions in pro bono work to thousands of nonprofits.
Through CreateAthon, marketing professionals and students engage in meaningful, high impact pro bono service. While we’re proud to have created the model that launched hundreds of creative all-nighters, we know there aren’t enough. So many deserving nonprofits could do so much more with our help.
That’s why, if you’d like to join our movement, you can download the official CreateAthon planning toolkit — for free. Come on, we dare you. Make a difference in your community through CreateAthon.
We’re having our 26th annual event on March 7 and 8, developing marketing and communications strategies and deliverables to support important causes in our community. We encourage Midlands and Upstate nonprofits to apply by January 19. Within the application, nonprofits have the opportunity to submit a video sharing how CreateAthon can best serve their organization.
