Coalesce Marketing & Design Selects Four Fox Valley Non-Profits for 2GETHER•4GOOD
Youth Go, NAMI Fox Valley, myTeam Triumph and UW-Fox Valley Foundation to Receive Assistance During 24-Hour Marketing Marathon

Coalesce Marketing & Design will provide marketing assistance to four Fox Valley non-profit organizations during its 2nd annual 2GETHER•4GOOD™ marketing marathon, to be held from 9 a.m. Thursday, May 21 to 9 a.m. Friday, May 22.

This year’s 2GETHER•4GOOD recipients are:

  • Youth Go, Inc., which provides area youth in grades 5-12 with opportunities to learn, grow and feel comfortable with themselves and others in a voluntary, youth-directed, supportive community.
  • NAMI Fox Valley, which provides help, hope and support to those affected by mental illness.
  • myTeam Triumph Wisconsin Chapter, which provides athletic mentoring to children, teens, adults and veterans with disabilities who would normally not be able to experience endurance events.
  • University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley Foundation, which provides financial support for student scholarships, faculty and staff development, and equipment purchases and upgrades.

Nearly two-dozen local organizations applied for the 24-hour workathon in which the Coalesce team will work non-stop to create marketing materials and creative deliverables. In addition, non-profit, independent, community radio 91.1 The Avenue is also providing an on-air announcement schedule valued at $1,200 for the four participants.

“Once again, we were amazed and humbled by all of the good work happening in the Fox Cities, which made the 2GETHER•4GOOD selection process extremely difficult,” says Lisa Piikkila, owner and creative director of Appleton-based Coalesce Marketing. “To further extend the impact of 2GETHER•4GOOD, we are providing every applicant the opportunity to participate in an online fundraising effort to help raise funds for their organization.”

Interested 2GETHER•4GOOD applicants will be set up on Crowdrise.org, an online fundraising platform, and be provided social media guidance from 2GETHER•4GOOD partner BConnected aimed at driving people to donate to their organization. The online fundraiser kicks off May 21 and will run through May 24.

In addition, BConnected will be providing social media expertise to 2GETHER•4GOOD participant myTeam Triumph and applicants Inspire Sports and Little Chute Windmill, and N.E.W. Printing will be donating print services.

Coalesce Marketing created 2GETHER•4GOOD in 2014 in celebration of its 10-year anniversary and as a way to extend its mission of growing together with its clients, community and team. The agency encourages all area non-profits to apply next year. More information on 2GETHER•4GOOD can be found at www.2gether4good.com.
