Introducing GIVExDESIGN

We believe everyone deserves great design—and that's particularly true for organizations working selflessly for social good. With GIVExDESIGN, we're donating our design work to a selected nonprofit.

Each quarter we'll donate our design services to a selected nonprofit—our account managers, designers, and platform—producing the display ads, collateral, case studies, and presentations they need to further their mission.


Our first nonprofit is the International Rescue Committee. We have been honored to work with them for nearly a year, and to donate this quarter's design budget to support their vital mission.

GIVExDESIGN's First Recipient

International Rescue Committee

The International Rescue Committee is a nonprofit based in New York City that helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and regain control of their future.

They are committed to making sure that 90 cents of every dollar goes directly to beneficiaries.

Lightboard’s donation of digital advertising design helps us reach our goal of making 90% of our donors’ money go directly to the refugees—the children and families—caught in conflict.
