Each year, Causewave Community Partners works with more than 200 nonprofits to strengthen their organizations so they can be more effective in strengthening our community. But we can’t do it alone – we need you and your expertise!

Contact Marta Driscoll at mdriscoll@causewave.org if you want to make a difference by volunteering your time and talents.


"So often as creatives we feel semi-removed from the work we do once it's out in the world, even with all of the metrics and measurements of effectiveness and reach and response that go into each campaign. Sometimes we don't see the impact that we do make as part of the larger whole. To make a difference in the life of even one person is tremendously humbling, and serves as a profound reminder of how fortunate I am. I am grateful for and proud of everyone who had a hand in this. And for the opportunity to be a part of it."

Creative Development of Early Help Seeking Campaign

"Somebody once told me to 'use my power for good.' I’ve taken that to heart in nearly everything I do. Causewave Community Partners provides an opportunity for marketing professionals to give back by helping nonprofits in our community develop and expand their marketing programs. In doing so, I’ve met some truly wonderful people along the way and had experiences I would not have otherwise had. I have gained so much more than I’ve given."

Pass Life On Campaign, Strategic Roundtables

"I’ve always had a passion for helping others accomplish meaningful results, which I’m lucky I get to do every day in my profession. But I want that in my personal life too, which is why I’m a volunteer and donor of Causewave Community Partners. They are an organization that is really helping to make a difference in Rochester."
