The Nonprofit Connection

Making a difference

Interested in making an impact in our community?

The Charleston American Marketing Association Nonprofit Connection project connects our members and deserving nonprofits who can use short term marketing assistance. The Charleston AMA represents the Lowcountry’s most talented marketing and design professionals and we recognize that there are many local nonprofit organizations, working hard to make life better for Lowcountry residents who could use our help.

Marketing companies and individual marketers volunteer their expertise with a commitment of 5–10 hours per project or month. Pro bono marketing initiatives created in the Adopt-A-Non program are eligible for submission to the annual Spark! Giving Award.

Project examples include:

  • Press release
  • Program design
  • Logo design
  • 30-second video
  • Two-hour marketing plan consult
  • Photography for one event
  • Website refresh
  • Social media campaign
  • Giving Tuesday campaign

Project assistance is available for a one-time, short-term campaign.

You are eligible if:

  1. Your organization is located in Charleston, Berkley, Dorchester, or Colleton Counties.
  2. You serve Charleston or Berkley County
  3. You are registered as a 5013C

ONE80 PLACE

We’re proud to support the mission of One80 Place, a nonprofit that provides food, shelter, and encouragement to individuals and families in need throughout the community. We do this by collecting food, toiletries, and bed sheets through drives; accepting cash donations that go directly to One80 Place; and organizing lunch shifts where members of AMA Charleston can serve and at the same time get to know one another.

College of Charleston

We’re also proud to have strong ties to the newly formed collegiate chapter of The American Marketing Association at the College of Charleston. Great things are in the works for this partnership, and we plan to foster the next generation of marketing professionals as they discover and develop their skills and take their first steps into the job market.
