MailChimp is an Atlanta company. Our app was born here in 2001, and our employees call Atlanta home. We’re honored to serve people and organizations in our community who are striving for creative excellence, encouraging considerate urbanism, and addressing systemic cycles of poverty.
People like Mónica Campana give our community life. Together with her team at Living Walls and some of the best street artists in the world, Mónica has given us fresh perspective on the possibilities of public spaces.
Dantes Rameau and his colleagues at the Atlanta Music Project foster excellence in Atlanta’s underserved youth. Inspired by Venezuela’s highly regarded El Sistema program, the Atlanta Music Project has changed the way Atlanta’s most vulnerable students view creativity, commitment, and themselves.
The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition has seen tremendous success under Rebecca Serna’s watch. Working with the City of Atlanta, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition’s leadership has inspired miles of new bike lanes, complete streets legislation, and hundreds of thousands of people to play in the streets thanks to Atlanta Streets Alive.
Truly Living Well connects urban communities with the land. Rashid Nuri’s team grows natural food in small urban environments. They teach farming in underserved communities. They create economic opportunities for their neighbors and their neighborhood. And they help us reconsider what the highest and best use of the land really is.
Austin Dickson is the executive director of Literacy Action, an organization that serves low-literate adults with sustainable literacy and life skills programming. Literacy Action tackles intergenerational poverty so effectively because they do more than just teach curricula and competence—they develop people.
Since 2012, MailChimp has had the opportunity to help these Atlanta projects and organizations through sponsorship or employee service.
MailChimp sponsors organizations that inspire us, and we try to help out with great ideas that align with our values. We aren’t able to help with every great project, however. We aren’t even able to respond to every great email. But we read everything and love hearing about inclusive ideas that make Atlanta better, weirder, and more human.
