Blueprint: Doing Good Without Going Broke

We all want to make a greater impact on the world, and are drawn to working with nonprofits that align with our causes. Sometimes, doing work with nonprofits can be fraught with frustration and miscommunication. We'll talk about how to achieve big things with small budgets with knowledge to know what boundaries and expectations are involved. What are some of the pitfalls involved in doing pro bono work? How can you convey the value of what is given to the nonprofit? Join us to learn how to do design for good and nurture those causes we are passionate about.
