"I feel incredibly lucky to be celebrating our fifteenth year in business,"
says Trevor Yager, founder and principal of TrendyMinds. "We've had and
continue to have amazing clients, fantastic results and truly talented
employees. We felt it was our duty to give something substantive back to the
community as a way of sharing the wealth, so to speak."
TrendyMinds has a long-standing tradition of donating its services to
charitable organizations and nonprofits. In 2009 the agency awarded $50,000
to eight nonprofits: Athenaeum Foundation, Carmel Symphony Orchestra,
Fatherless Foundation, FIDO (Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside), IndyHub,
King Park Area Development Corporation, A Little Wiggle Room and The Polis
Center at IUPUI. Other organizations that have received in-kind work in
previous years include Methodist Health Foundation, Gleaners Food Bank, and
the American Cabaret Theatre.
"We know that 2010 will likely continue to be a hard year for many business
so we feel fortunate that we're in a position to give away this amount of
work," says Vicki Bohlsen, principal. "These deserving organizations do so
much good in the community, so I'm thrilled we can put our professional
expertise to use and help them achieve their goals."
In addition to donating $150,000 worth of agency work, TrendyMinds will
celebrate its 15th anniversary with four special events to be held
