Why It Matters
Do you know a local nonprofit that could use a boost to get the word out and raise funds, but doesn’t have the resources to make it happen? The amazing work produced during CreateAthon events helps local nonprofit recipients thrive, and in turn the community thrives.
The CreateAthon process has been around for over 20 years and is broken down into a tried-and-true method. It has transformed into an international movement with huge social impacts. Learn more about the CreateAthon movement.
By combining our creative skills and passions to share the messages of these nonprofts, we can help make a powerful impact in the communities where we work and live.
