GRBF was one of twelve nonprofits to win a coveted spot in the 5th Annual CreateAthon at VCU. Starting January 30, 2012, CreateAthon student team leaders will spend the semester interacting with GRBF and other nonprofits to understand our goals and needs. The class culminates in a 24-hour creative marathon on March 15th-16th. Students will be joined by local professionals to complete and present the requested projects.
GRBF’s winning request involves our Pro Bono Promise initiative which asks law firms & law departments to “promise” a certain percentage of their time each year providing pro bono (free) legal service for those in need. More about Pro Bono Promise
