THUS Agency – Creatives for Nonprofits (“THUS”) provides pro bono services by professionals in creative industries and communications for NGOs. Through our agency, creative professionals can get directly involved to support charitable causes. NGOs gain public visibility and important resources to support their funding and operations.
THUS Agency – Creatives for Nonprofits supports NGOs and creative professionals who work together. Our agency serves as mediators and project managers between the collaborations. NGOs and creative professionals benefit from each other’s work and support.
Our agency effectively presents the work and socio-political advocacy of NGOs to the public. We present opportunities for the public to support these local initiatives. Furthermore, our work reduces barriers and opens opportunities for local NGOs to connect with prospective donors.
