Welcome to the second annual AAF SWVA CreateAthon!
CreateAthon — started in 2002 by RIGGS Partners of Columbia, SC — was a way to manage their many requests for pro-bono work. Nation-wide, other agencies followed and partnered with CreateAthon International. AAF SWVA is proud to join the ranks of CreateAthon during National Pro Bono Week.
How does CreateAthon work?
- AAF SWVA solicits applications from local 501(c)3 organizations.
- We select a set of projects based on recommended criteria and the capabilities of the volunteer team we have in place.
- A project plan or creative brief is developed in the weeks before the event, learning about the nonprofit clients and what communications problems need solved.
- These projects are then completed, start-to-finish in a 24-hour creative marathon.
