Pro Bono Work

Pro bono is defined in RGD ’s book, The Business of Graphic Design: A Professional’s Handbook, as: “The donation of a person’s time or expertise at no charge generally conducted for charitable, religious, civic, community, governmental, educational and other non-profit organizations.”


The Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) is pleased to provide this guide for graphic designers to assist in the process of working with non-profit organizations on pro bono communications projects.
