Central Pennsylvania Creative Professionals -- Education + Networking + Philanthropy + Awards
Brand[AID] is our yearly philanthropic effort to support a local nonprofit. Spanning months, [CP]2 volunteers help select an organization, define their needs, revamp their brand and support their marketing efforts.

Apply for Brand[AID]

Are you part of a local nonprofit looking to refresh your brand? Or do you know a nonprofit whose marketing could use some help?

[CP]2 is looking forward to hosting our fifth Brand[Aid] and helping guide another local nonprofit through a rebrand.

But first, we need a client.

Interested nonprofits are encouraged to apply by answering a few basic questions about your nonprofit’s current branding and marketing. Past applicants are highly encouraged to reapply!

In addition to the application, a short video appeal is strongly encouraged so we can see your enthusiasm and put a face with the name! The top candidates will be interviewed and the chosen nonprofit will be announced a few weeks later.

Because of the pandemic, we’re in the process of making this entire process virtual. If you’d like to get a headstart, download the application and start thinking about your video. We’ll get back to you soon with application deadlines. Thanks!

2020 SCHEDULE

We’re in the process of refining our virtual approach and schedule right now. The general flow will go something like this:
