The companies will jointly select the award recipient on October 1st, 2010.

Together with their Strategic Partners,  Madison+Main will be donating $100,000 of creative marketing, PR, printing and technical services to one local nonprofit organization.

We’re very excited to work with our Partners to provide this assistance to one great charitable organization. Working together we think we can really make a difference.”  Madison+Main has a longstanding reputation for helping a variety of reputable charitable causes, including the MS Society – Central Virginia Chapter and Positive Vibe Café.
