Local marketing agency opens applications for pro bono services to Lowcountry nonprofits

18th Annual CreateAthon

Trio Solutions Inc. (TRIO), a Mount Pleasant-based marketing communications agency, will work for 24 hours to provide free advertising and marketing services to Lowcountry nonprofits during its 18th annual CreateAthon on Oct. 24-25, 2024.

CreateAthon is a 24-hour creative marathon started by Riggs Partners in Columbia in 1998. TRIO joined the efforts in 2007 as the Lowcountry’s exclusive agency and has since supported over 70 nonprofits by providing more than half a million dollars in pro bono services. 

TRIO will be accepting applications from Lowcountry-based nonprofits from Wednesday, June 26, through Sunday, July 28, at 5 p.m. Applicants must fill out a written form and are encouraged to submit a 60-second video on why their organization should be selected. Applications can be found at trio-solutions.com/createathon.  

“The support we received from Team TRIO has been a dream come true for our organization!” shared Robin Berlinsky, CEO of Engaging Creative Minds. “TRIO’s CreateAthon assets have done wonders for our marketing and allowed us to make an even bigger impact in our community.”

Four nonprofits will be selected to participate in TRIO’s 2024 CreateAthon, plus an additional “People’s Choice” organization, which will be chosen through a voting process on TRIO’s social media channels beginning Monday, Aug. 26, through Sunday, Sept. 1, at 8 p.m. All CreateAthon recipients will be announced on Friday, Sept. 6. 

CreateAthon 2024 participants will receive a variety of services, including marketing and fundraising plans, logos, websites, postcards, banners, brand identity packages, website assessments and social media plans. Project scopes will vary based on the capacity of the TRIO team as well as the specific needs of the organizations.
