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.
