T/G Gives Back

Commitment to our community is one of the core values at Tayloe/Gray. We feel that giving back is more than just providing a pro bono service to a deserving cause – it is a reflection of our character as a company. Our goodwill program demonstrates a long-standing pledge to help non-profit organizations. We are honored to partner in their success.

Like many marketing agencies, we are often asked to donate our services to local charities and businesses. Although we would like to assist everyone who inquires, we must make wise investments to achieve the greatest possible impact for our clients. To maximize our goodwill efforts, we select a maximum of 2 non-profit organizations per year. If you’re interested in having TG work on your non-profit project please fill out our contact form.

We are fortunate to have worked with a variety of non-profit organizations in a wide range of industries. To learn more about the types of charities and business we have partnered with, review our Pro Bono Portfolio.

IndoJax Surf Charities – Web Development, Event Planning, eCommerce

IndoJax® Surf Charities is committed to empowering disadvantaged, medically fragile, and special-needs children by exposing them to the ocean environment and teaching them to surf. They believe that the ocean and learning to surf have profound healing properties and build self-esteem. The more than dozen surf camps serve nearly 1000 children annually, and are provided at no charge to the participants—who inevitably move from a feeling of skepticism and reluctance around the ocean to empowerment and confidence, giving them the sense that “If I can surf, I can do anything!”
