I'M AN AGENCY WANTING TO SUPPORT MY LOCAL COMMUNITY

WHY DO PRO BONO WORK FOR NONPROFITS IN NEED?

Many nonprofits local to the Eugene/Springfield area don't have the budget or resources to get marketing materials that they need to stay in business. That's why we need agencies like you to help out. It'll be painless and will only take a weekend to complete. Plus you can satisfy any quotas that your company may have in regards to community service hours.

WHAT IS A CREATEATHON?

CreateAthon is a program designed to give students a chance to learn and give back at the same time. CreateAthon culminates in a 24-hour, work-around-the-clock marketing marathon during January 24-26, 2020. During this event, University of Oregon students and local professionals will produce strategic, creative marketing work for selected Eugene/Springfield area nonprofits. Each student team will work with local advertising, design or marketing professionals who will mentor the students’ work, ensuring high-quality and effective materials. The strategic and creative work are delivered to the clients in late February.
