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.

WHAT CAN YOU GET HELP WITH?

Here are a few things. We're looking to you to add to this list.

WHAT KIND OF NONPROFITS CAN APPLY?

Any 501(c)3 organization that needs help telling their story is eligible to apply and be considered as a CreateAthon client. Organizations are selected by a review committee that focuses on how well the project will fit with the students’ skills, the limited resources available for marketing within the organization, and the impact on the local community.
