how can members fulfill their pledge?
We’re glad you asked. We’ve developed four simple ways for Visible Members to fulfill their pledge requirements:
Participate in an All-For-Good Equity Tournament
Our quarterly All-For-Good Equity Tournaments allow our local members to complete their pledge requirements in one day. Tournaments are currently offered in Portland, Oregon, but we hope to be able to offer more Tournament events and locations soon.
Volunteer for an open Visible Project
Browse our list of open projects for organizations in need, and contact our HQ team if you see an opportunity that you'd like to volunteer for. Visible open projects have been vetted by our team and have passed our qualification guidelines. Organizations with open projects featured on our website have agreed to follow Visible project processes and standards of conduct.
Ask Your Workplace to Become a Visible Studio Partner
Visible studio partners are full-service creative agencies that have committed to the Visible pledge. Their employees can compete in an All-for-Good Equity Tournament event, participate in an Good-for-All Equity Challenge during studio downtime, or a Studio may choose to take on a Visible organization as a pro-bono client to work on a large or small project independently. The greater your studio's position within the design community, the more impact their pledge has to inspire others to take action.
Find Your Own Project!
Any pro-bono project to benefit an organization that qualifies to receive services from Visible will fulfill your yearly pledge requirements. We're currently developing a set of contract templates and guidelines for our individual members who prefer to volunteer outside our organization.
In addition to these four main ways our members typically fulfill their pledge requirements, there are many other ways that qualify — such as volunteering as an in-house designer or design intern at a non-profit organization, enrolling in a PNCA Visible Studio class, becoming an on-site Visible Intern at our HQ, and more. We encourage you to get creative and help us find new ways to volunteer your skills. We'd love to hear your ideas or answer any questions you may have about fulfilling your pledge.
