Giving Back

Red Thinking's Annual BrandJam

Watch Video

Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” H. Jackson Brown Jr.

We’re a happy bunch. We do great work and deliver amazing results for our clients. But for one day each year, we turn our attention towards the organizations who need our help the most. We shut our doors and for twenty-four hours we focus on nothing but pro-bono projects that serve local non-profits.

By focusing our pro bono efforts, we’re able to make a real impact on our community. We can amplify the tremendous work these organizations are doing by providing the high-quality logos, brochures, membership packets, one-pagers and websites that get results, but are seldom in the budget. When organizations have these eye-catching marketing materials, it’s easier to fundraise, recruit volunteers, and get program participation.

Given the difficult circumstances that COVID-19 has presented to all of us personally and professionally, we considered every option but ultimately cannot envision a clear and safe path forward for hosting Brand Jam this year. We do offer non-profit pricing if that is a consideration. Please email See you next year!

How do you choose which non-profits you work with? It’s a tough decision, that’s for sure. We focus on a combination of factors such as non-profit status, impact, location, and budget. Why 24-hours straight? By eliminating distractions and focusing exclusively on charitable organizations, we’re able to get more done in less time. Red Thinkers thrive in this environment and have a whole lot of fun during the process.
My organization is not a non-profit. Can I still apply? Because of the tremendous demand, we limit the organizations we accept into the Annual Brand Jam program to those with 501(c)3 status only. I applied last year and didn’t get accepted. Can I reapply this year? Absolutely. Our fingers are crossed for you this time around.
When will I know if my application was accepted? It typically takes 4-6 weeks from the application close date for us to process the applications and choose the lucky organizations. We’ll notify you using the email address you listed in your application. I don’t work for Red Thinking, but can I volunteer at the event? Of course! Each year, we welcome many of our vendors and creative partners to participate. If that’s not your thing, there’s still plenty to do. Get in touch and let us know how you’d like to help.

Want to apply? Rock on! Fill out this application and we will be in touch.
