Sales Factory celebrates 20 years of giving back

GREENSBORO — As unprecedented times continue to affect nonprofits, Sales Factory will once again help dozens of them across North Carolina through its annual 24-hour pro bono marketing blitz, CreateAthon. The brand growth company is looking to support more organizations than ever in the event’s 20 year history through free advertising, branding and marketing services.

“This is a milestone year in our efforts to give back to those who give our communities so much,” said Ged King, CEO of Sales Factory. “Often these organizations are in need of marketing help but don’t have the funds, and this event is our way of using our skills to give them a boost.”

Sales Factory is now accepting applications for the 20th annual event. 501(c)3 organizations are invited to apply to receive work including logo and letterhead design; brochure, banner, direct mail and PowerPoint template development; and public relations services. This year’s event will take place December 2-3.

“We got involved with CreateAthon shortly after the events of 9/11/01 because we wanted to do something meaningful to help others,” King added. “COVID-19 has placed added strain on nonprofits, who have resiliently learned to adapt in the face of change and we encourage local nonprofits to apply to be a part of this program. It’s our honor to be able to help them.”

501(c)3 organizations in North Carolina that are in need of pro bono marketing expertise to help their cause can apply for the program on Sales Factory’s website through October 22. Selections are chosen based on need and nonprofits will be notified by October 29. All Sales Factory employees will dedicate 24 hours of their time on December 2 and 3 to take part in the event.
