We believe that strong strategy, smart storytelling, and surprisingly obvious design solutions unlock organizational and business growth. This can be particularly true for nonprofit institutions, for whom the need to tell a meaningful story, that will reach the right audience, and move them to action, is all the more crucial.

Each year, we will make quality, strategic design more accessible by partnering with a single non-profit institution for the full year, giving them access to all of our services.


We recognize the difficulties experienced through the past two years in particular, from navigating the pandemic, to the ongoing racial reckoning, and beyond. We stand united in the call for great and necessary change within our country and communities. And we’re committed to making quality, strategic design accessible to smaller and younger nonprofits, whose work is now more necessary than ever.

Chicago area non-profit organizations, units of state and local government, and federally-recognized tribal communities or tribes are invited to apply. Please download and complete the application below and return by December 12, 2022.
