IdeaBank launched IdeaThon in 2021 to support area nonprofit organizations with strategic and creative marketing products and services that they would not otherwise be able to afford.
In the first IdeaThon, IdeaBank created $36,875 worth of services and resources within 24 hours to help the Multicultural Coalition promote its Immigrant Story Walk. That resulted in an attendance increase of 63% for the coalition.
IdeaBank’s efforts also freed up time for the coalition to improve the event’s décor and silent auction and make the immigration simulation more realistic.
For enCourage, IdeaBank will name the organization’s inaugural signature fundraising event, as well as develop promotional materials.
The event will take place on Feb. 2, 2024, at Blank Space/Blue Fork Kitchen.
Based in Hastings, enCourage Advocacy Center addresses root causes of abuse and violence in Adams, Nuckolls, Clay and Webster counties. The organization also combats human trafficking while empowering survivors of abuse and sexual assault.
“We began IdeaThon as a way to support nonprofits in the communities where IdeaBank and its team members live and work,” said Sherma Jones, agency principal. “We’re glad to be able to assist enCourage in the vital work it provides its clients and the community.”
