TMG|20: Introducing Treacy Marketing Group’s 20 for 20 Campaign

As part of our 20th Anniversary Celebration, Treacy Marketing Group developed the 20 for 20 Campaign to connect with Chicago-based non-profit organizations that would benefit from working with a marketing firm like ours. At the end of February, Treacy Marketing Group will select two deserving organizations to receive up to $20,000 in our strategic marketing services.

The campaign asked non-profit organizations located and serving in Chicago to submit an application detailing the organization’s mission, history and goals for working with Treacy Marketing Group.  Possible projects include, but are not limited to: strategic marketing consulting, brand identity services, brand marketing, graphic or website design. We received an overwhelming number of wonderful applicants and have narrowed it down to 15 deserving non-profits that serve the Chicago community.

We’re asking our clients and friends to help us decide which organizations should be selected for this pro-bono project by learning more about each organization and how they would utilize our marketing services.

Let us know which organization is most deserving by submitting your input at www.treacymarketing.com/20for20. The finalists will be chosen based on their marketing needs, ability to work with a marketing firm, and the quality of input from supporters.
