Creatively Serving Our Community

Contributed by FIFTEEN


Our love for our Western New York community runs deep. Many of us were born and raised here – and don’t plan on leaving the place we love to call home – while the rest of us, welcomed with open arms, settled in as proud WNY locals. Native or not, our hearts belong to the City of Good Neighbors, and we love that we get to make an impact with our work right here, right now. 

Giving back to our community through pro bono work has always been a central pillar of our values, and we’re very intentional about the people and efforts we choose to support. In an effort to democratize the process for how we select these partnerships, our internal DE+I Committee created The FIFTEEN Project – empowering our entire team to choose the organizations that most align with our passions, abilities, and potential for impact. Our focus is on those who have been historically underrepresented as marketing and advertising agency clients. 

We’re extending The FIFTEEN Project application to everyone who meets our eligibility criteria, while also giving all members of team FIFTEEN a say in which nonprofits and Minority and/or Women-Owned Businesses (MWOB) we support. We’ll be donating a total of 400 hours to pro bono clients (donation to be renewed annually). Our services include branding, website design and development, video production and photography, social media, public relations, content marketing, event activation and more.

Where To Apply

We’re extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve, uplift and work alongside so many amazing local businesses, organizations and causes with our passions and talents. Empowering marginalized or more vulnerable business owners, teams and organizations in our community is something that is very important to us, and we hope to make their voices and initiatives heard through our charitable work. We hope you’ll help us out with nominations!
