We’re giving away a website to a Chattanooga 501(c)(3) nonprofit!

Tips for Competing in the Riverworks Nonprofit Website Giveaway

Thank you for your interest in the Riverworks Nonprofit Website Giveaway! We wanted to give you some tips on how to increase your chances of winning.


501(c )(3) organizations with headquarters or a chapter located within a 25-mile radius of downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee can be nominated on or before noon on February 15th. Starting February 16th, participating Nonprofits that have submitted their mission statement and logo will be able to have supporters visit the contest page to cast one vote per 24 hour period. The Nonprofit with the most votes at 5 pm on February 28th wins.

Strength in Numbers

You will need to rally your supporters to vote for you daily in the contest. That’s how the Chattanooga Theatre Centre got enough votes to prevail. Use your ingenuity to find ways to spread the message. Ask your friends and family to vote and ask others to vote as well. The website we’re giving away will be valued at $10K, so we want to award it to a Nonprofit that is actually going to put some effort into winning it!


Post messages to your Facebook Page or Group, asking followers to vote for you daily. You will need to direct them to https://www.riverworksmarketing.com/2018-riverworks-nonprofit-website-giveaway/

Is this for real?

Just ask the Chattanooga Theatre Centre, which won last year’s contest.

“Our whole team at the Chattanooga Theatre Centre is thrilled with the fresh, sophisticated website Riverworks has created for us. Our theatre was founded in 1923, and while we celebrate that history, we want to be contemporary, responsive, and relevant to our audiences. What struck me in seeing the finished product is how much the team at Riverworks understands us. It’s obvious that they educated themselves about the multiple priorities that running a theatre entail and built a website reflective of those priorities. This website absolutely reflects that ideal and will help us ‘up our game’ with current and new patrons. We’re so grateful for what Riverworks has done to help us put our best face in front of the community.”
