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

A local creative agency wants to help out by awarding $10,000 worth of services to the recipient of the Trailblazer Fund.

“Once a year, we look for a non-profit organization that is doing really great work but has marketing, design or branding challenges,” says says Suzy Rounce, co-founder and creative director of Switchback Creative.

“Are they making the world a better place, helping their community with a big vision and following it up with action? Do they need some creative expertise to help solve challenges and spread the word?”

Switchback will provide free access to 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.

Switchback Creative is a digital creative agency that has worked with more than 250 clients in seven years building brands from ground level to multi-million dollar companies.

This is fourth year the company will award the non-profit TrailBlazer Fund.

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

“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.”

Over the past three years,  Rounce says they have donated their services to a local children’s festival, a library and a museum through this program.

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