Times are tough right now, especially for non-profit organizations.

Switchback Creative, a local digital creative agency, is doing its part to help out by awarding $10,000 worth of services to the recipient of the Trailblazer Fund.

According Suzy Rounce, co-founder and creative director of Switchback Creative, once a year the company looks for a non-profit organization that has marketing, design or branding challenges.

“Are they making the world a better place, helping their community with a big vision and following it up with action?” asks Rounce.

“Do they need some creative expertise to help solve challenges and spread the word? Switchback can help.”

Switchback provides free access to their marketing expertise and collaboration with recipients to bring them quality branding, design or web development services that will take their organization to the next level.

The Trailblazer Fund has been in operation for five years. The program has helped The Association for the Rehabilitation of the Brain Injured, The Airdrie Public Library, The Airdrie Children’s Festival, Sour Dog Theatre, Nose Creek Valley Museum and The Woods Adventure Co.

“We will help blaze a trail to greater heights based on a foundation that has already been set, or a vision taking shape for the non-profit organization,” says Rounce.

“We created the TrailBlazer Fund so that every year we could significantly help a charity organization take a big step forward.”

Applications are open now for 2022 until Nov. 15 and can be submitted here.

“We are looking for passionate pitches on why they need our help and what their vision is for the future,” says Rounce.

The winner will be announced on Dec. 15.
