Image of words Opportunity Knocks

At Aquent, we see the amazing impact that design has every day. Yet we know many nonprofits don’t have the resources to hire designers to help tell their story. That’s why we created our Design for Good grant program.
We’ll be awarding five $5,000 in design grants to worthy nonprofits who partner with designers to support their mission. We’re inviting graphic designers around the world to submit short video entries on behalf of their favorite charity, explaining:

  • Their vision for the design project
  • What they’ll design with the grant funds
  • The potential impact of the design project
  • Why this nonprofit is important to them

Check out this video on what to include in your application.

We’re accepting submission videos through January 20, 2017. A panel of judges from the design and creative industries will review submissions based on their potential impact, feasibility, and creativity. Grant recipients will be announced in late February 2017.
As the world’s largest creative staffing firm, we know the intrinsic value of design. Our goal for the Design for Good grants program is to showcase nonprofits and graphic designers and the great things they can do together -- to make a real difference in the world.

We’re thrilled to see so many designers who are enthusiastic about working on behalf of charities. So far, we’ve received entries from designers keen on supporting charities such as Helping Orphans Worldwide, Energizing Education, and the Auburndale Community Library.
We’re excited to see many more video submissions by Jan. 20. Visit our Design for Good site for submission tips, entry guidelines, and a gallery of current entries.
