Our mission is to harness local talent in the fields of design, engineering, and manufacturing with the aim of contributing to philanthropic projects.
Makers4Good.org works to set up giving partnerships between makers and like-minded nonprofits. The makers donate to their partner organization 100% of the profits for a specific product. The nonprofit can then reach out to their members and design a publicity campaign to raise both awareness and funding for their cause. We act as a catalyst for makers who want to give back, but are unsure of the best way to do so.
We also collaborate with the same talented makers to work on design challenges for underserved populations. We brainstorm, prototype, test, and create solutions for real-world problems. We find that these collaborations not only benefit the population served by the project at hand, but also foster a mindset of working for social good. We want to create a community where doing good is engrained in the culture, openly discussed, and examined to improve and enhance its impact.
Makers4Good.org is fiscally sponsored by Social Good Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization.
