REACH was created to take the mystery out of pricing for nonprofits.

At GDLOFT, we’re passionate about two things: great design, and Philadelphia’s vibrant nonprofit sector. We believe that invigorating visuals are an essential part of keeping our region’s organizations vital and connected with their communities. That’s why created REACH Partnerships, a program designed specifically to support small-to-medium nonprofits.

REACH is a discount subscription program that gives organizations with limited capacity ongoing access to the resources and design expertise of GDLOFT. REACH Partners will get 20 hours monthly of unlimited design requests, revisions, and dedicated design support from GDLOFT (with an option to purchase additional hours).

FAQ

What do we mean when we say ‘subscription-based program’?
Over the course of a normal year, the cost of designing individual pieces adds up. REACH Partners don’t pay on a per-project basis. Instead, we allot a set number of hours every month to work on anything you need. In this way, your organization can get more work done for less.

 

How does it work?
Once you become a REACH Partner, you get ongoing access to GDLOFT for a full year. Your GDLOFT project manager will schedule regular monthly check-ins with you to establish goals, suggest strategies, and update you on projects. Turn-around time on projects will vary, but once you submit a design request, you can expect a response within 48 hours.

 

Do I have to sign up for a whole year?
Not necessarily! We know fiscal year-ends vary from organization to organization. To accommodate organizations whose year is already underway, we offer  6-to-11 month options. We wish we could go lower, but with the rates we are charging, we would actually start losing money with a shorter contract.

 

Does ‘ongoing access’ mean unlimited time?
REACH Partners have 20 hours of available to them every month, which will include a monthly check-in call to make we are meeting your needs and provide recommendations on upcoming projects. By working with you at the start of the year to identify your design needs, GDLOFT can maximize how it organizes and schedules projects.

 

How much does it cost?
REACH Partners sign up for 6-month to 12-month contracts. A 6-to-11 month contract is $1200 a month. A full-year contract is $1000 a month. A month of service is considered roughly 20 hours, on average. Projects requests are limited to 2 active projects at a time.

How do I know if my organization is eligible?
If your organization is at the point where it has substantial design needs, but can’t yet afford a full-time, in-house designer, then you are probably eligible. We think most REACH Partner organizations have an annual revenue between $600k and $2.5 million, but we consider every potential Partner on an individual basis.
