What is Chicago Cause?

Chicago Cause began as a philanthropic partnership between Orbit Media and Digital Third Coast.

Together we’ve donated over $700,000 in marketing services including web design, digital marketing, SEO and content strategy to local Chicago nonprofits.

Through this cause, we strive to strengthen and serve Chicago nonprofits so that they can continue to do great things in the city we love!
