99designs launches new '99nonprofits' initiative providing free graphic design services to not-for-profit organisations around the world

99nonprofits-for-blog-post-full1 copy.jpg99designs, the largest online marketplace for crowdsourced graphic design services, today announced the launch of 99nonprofits, a new initiative to provide free graphic design services such as logo design, web page design, t-shirt design and print design to not-for-profit organisations around the world.
 
All organisations with not-for-profit status in need of design work are invited to submit an application by clicking here.

Through the 99nonprofits program, charitable organisations needing graphic design services may submit applications to 99designs. The company will select 99 organisations in the months ahead to receive free design contests. Winning organisations will launch design contests to 99designs' global community of more than 160,000 graphic designers, paid for by 99designs. Winning designers will receive full prize awards, and the organisations and their winning designs will be featured on 99designs' website.
 
Inaugural 99nonprofits participants include:
 
Says Patrick Llewellyn, CEO: "99nonprofits is an extension of our commitment to support organisations making a positive impact in their local communities and around the world.

"We've hosted thousands of contests for not-for-profit organisations since our founding in 2008, and in recent months we've seen a significant increase in requests for financial assistance. 99nonprofits will provide a streamlined platform for evaluating requests, granting aid and working closely with participants every step of the way."
 
99designs has a strong history of giving back. Some of the company's community outreach efforts have included donating one day's profits to disaster relief following the major earthquake in New Zealand; conducting a t-shirt design fundraising campaign to help post-earthquake rebuilding efforts in Haiti; participating in a PushupCharity event in San Francisco to raise more than $5,500 for educational support platform DonorsChoose.org; and volunteering time for projects like helping to restore local San Francisco parks.
