Pro Bono Marketing Services to Support Those Who Protect and Steward the Outdoors
The Stand Up Initiative is a pro bono marketing program designed to help environmental and conservation-oriented nonprofits continue fighting the good fights.
The Initiative was launched in 2016 by Darby Communications, an Asheville-based boutique PR and digital marketing company, in response to the challenges environmental non-profits have faced as a result of our political climate. Status Forward joined the effort in 2020, and couldn’t be more pleased to lend our skills to support the work of our incredible participant partners.
The Initiative includes a six-month package of consulting and marketing services ranging from PR and social media assessments to SEO and keyword research to design and web development and more. Each year, two nonprofits are selected to receive a combined total of 100 hours of pro bono work.
Stand Up 2021
This year the Initiative is expanding applications to include nonprofits working to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the outdoors.
The application process is open now through November 27, 2020. Regional and national nonprofits are encouraged to apply.
2020 Stand Up Partners
This past year we worked two incredible organizations working to protect and steward the outdoor places we treasure.
Each Initiative engagement is different based on the needs of each partner. To understand what a project may look like for your nonprofit, read our San Juan Mountains Association Project Case Study.
