Grants of $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations to hire graphic designers to help promote their mission. Graphic designers will submit a video entry on behalf of a nonprofit they believe in. Videos will be judged on the design’s creativity, feasibility, and idea impact.

The Design for Good Grants will be awarded to winning nonprofit organizations based on video submissions of proposed projects by graphic designers who want to help those nonprofits. Each video submission should include details about the nonprofit and of the applicant’s vision for the design project.

A panel of judges will choose among the video submissions and award $5,000 to the top five entries. The organization will receive the money directly. Grant funds will be used to hire a graphic designer to execute the design work. If a charity or nonprofit has not yet been established, funds will be allocated to the designer or design team.

Your video will be judged on your idea’s impact, creativity, and feasibility. A high-quality video helps too—think high resolution, good lighting, and an uncluttered background.
