Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the more common questions in regards to the offered services and selection program.
Why are you helping non-profits?
We created Designers for Non-Profits as a way to give back to the community and help foster causes we believe in. Since we both run our own for-profit agencies we wanted a way to use our skill sets in a charitable way.
Is this really pro bono?
Yep! We provide all of this free of charge — and, there’s no ‘gotcha’ either.
We know a lot of companies offer a free consultation and then upsell you on a paid service. Don’t worry about that happening here — we made a commitment to keep our services pro bono.
What does it take to qualify?
Qualifications are not set in stone (since we’re trying to help as many non-profits as possible) but here are some factors we consider:
- Size of your non-profit (we’re focused on helping small non-profits)
- Your non-profit’s cause
- Do you already have a logo and website
Simply reach out to us and we’ll schedule a quick introduction call. From there we’ll let you know if you qualify.
Will you design my logo?
Unfortunately logo design falls outside of our scope of services. We will gladly point you to resources where you can get a good logo design for a reasonable price — we’ll even consult you through the logo design process.
We do provide assistance with other parts of your brand. Examples are:
- Vectorizing your logo
- Creating a brand guide
- Doing a brand audit
Will you build my website?
Website builds also fall outside the scope of services, so unfortunately we can’t build your website. However, we’ll gladly help you find the resources you need for getting your website built and we’ll consult with you along the way.
We do provide assistance with your website (once it is built):
- Website Audit
- WordPress Care Plan (6 months of keeping your plugins and theme up to date)
- Small visual changes to the website
