What is Createathon?

CreateAthon is a 24-hour, work-around the clock creative blitz that brings volunteers together to provide pro bono creative services to selected nonprofit organizations.

With more than 5,000 501(c)3 organizations competing for volunteer hours and donations in Central Texas alone, nonprofits need — now more than ever — strong branding and marketing collateral to help them stand out from the crowd. However, limited budgets and resources often stand in the way.

This year BuildASign.com will host CreateAthon Austin for the third year in a row. To date, Central Texas nonprofits have received pro bono creative consultations, services and materials worth over $200,000 through CreateAthon.

CreateAthon Austin has helped local organizations such as Austin Sunshine Camps, Austin Pets Alive!, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Center for Child Protection, Fusebox Festival, and Wine and Food Foundation.

CreateAthon & GiveCamp

This year CreateAthon Austin is working in partnership with GiveCamp to provide a larger spectrum of pro bono services to nonprofits in our community. Several projects will be selected for both CreateAthon and GiveCamp and will receive services including branding/design and software/website development – while others will be chosen for only CreateAthon. The projects will be selected based on the specific needs expressed in the application.

What is GiveCamp?

GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where technology professionals donate their time to provide solutions for non-profit organizations.  For the third year in a row, GiveCamp will be hosted by Headspring. Since its inception in 2007, the GiveCamp program has provided benefits to hundreds of charities, worth millions of dollars of developer and designer time in services!
