Project Description

Slovakia Creative MarathonProgram

Pontis Foundation has organized the first Creative Marathon in Slovakia. We have introduced it within the largest corporate volunteering event Our Town in june 2014. Pro bono teams from creative agencies were working together with their nonprofit partners in a 12-hour creative blitz. At the end of the day, each team presented the results of the pro bono work and we have celebrated the success.



Pontis Foundation has selected 7 leading nonprofits tackling the issues of:

1)Transparency and anti-corruption – Via Iuris, Slovak Governance Institute

2)Homelessness and threatened communities – Proti prudu, Depaul, People in Need, Kaspian

3)Innovation – Connect coworking
