Serving Our Community
We want our legacy to stand for more than our client work, and we’re always searching for ways to give back to the community in a meaningful way.
Crux For a Cause Pro-Bono Marketing Program
We launched our pro-bono marketing services program in 2020, devoting $30,000 of marketing services gratis to one worthy nonprofit annually, starting with the organization People of All Colors Succeed.
For 2022, Crux selected Kanbe’s Markets as its pro-bono marketing services recipient. Kanbe’s provides access to fresh, healthy foods to Kansas City’s Food Deserts
KC SHEPHERD’S CENTER
For 2021, Crux selected KC Shepherd’s Center as its pro-bono marketing services recipient. KC Shepherd’s Center provides programs, leadership and advocacy to help older adults live healthy, engaged and independent lives.
Summer Internship Program
To open minds to a career in marketing, we recruit local students for our annual summer high school and college internship programs. Participants have the unique opportunity to build their resumes while partnering with our team to develop marketing campaigns and strategies.

Volunteerism is encouraged and applauded within our culture. The Crux team is proud to devote its time to many missions throughout the region.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
As marketing professionals, we’re aware of our industry’s diversity gap—and we’re choosing to actively combat it. Through our partnerships with The Brand Lab, People of All Colors Succeed, PREP-KC, Cristo Rey of Kansas City and CEOs for Real World Learning, we’re working to make a difference in the marketing/advertising industry and develop a diverse talent pipeline.
