ABOUT Chicago Cause
In 2010 Andy Crestodina, principal at Orbit Media, Dyana Flannigan, principal at Flanigan Communications and Lightspan Digital, came together with a shared love for our city, and for helping those who want to make Chicago a better place. We realized that nonprofits mostly receive donations for the core of their services and rarely receive funds and support for technology and marketing. We were in the perfect position to help an organization in this space and thus Chicago Cause was born.
Chicago Cause 2010 confirmed that there is a real need for web and marketing support. 70 amazing organization applied. Each had a social, environmental, economic or cultural mission and had a real need for help. The top 10 finalists each received a web video produced by the Orbit Media team and The Center for Disability and Elder Law was the winner of the full package of services.
We at Zealous Good are proud to know both such generous pro bono donors as Chicago Cause and such deserving non-profits! Way to partner and do good!
