Our Giving


4C: The IMAGEHAUS Giving Program

Since 2000, IMAGEHAUS has been committed to building a better community through a giving program based on core values of compassion, creativity, candor and courage. In partnership with worthy non-profit partners, we have donated more than $4 million in creative services that has helped raise over $35 million by putting the power of design to work. Building brands. Creating impact. Expanding audiences and clarifying the vital messages that compel people to care, to listen and to act.

How Your Organization Can Be Involved

IMAGEHAUS awards quarterly grants for creative services to organizations in our community that help people in need. These grants are based on our core values— compassion, creativity, candor and courage—the 4Cs. They enable our vision of the future.


Understanding the challenges of others and striving to make a positive impact, no matter how big or small.


Transcending traditional ideas. Developing meaningful solutions. Putting the power of design to work.


Executing free from bias, filled with honesty and clarity in attitude and speech.


Remaining true to convictions, acting based on beliefs. Creating impact, especially in spite of criticism.


All Twin Cities-based 501(c)(3) organizations are eligible to apply for one of our quarterly IMAGEHAUS 4C grants, using this downloadable 4C grant application. Please contact us at 4C@imagehaus.net for deadline details or any other questions regarding the 4C Program. After consideration is made based on submission, an estimate is created and submitted based on organizations needs at full market value. Grants awarded will cover a large percent of the cost of the project, but do not cover the entire amount. It is this approach that has allowed us to successfully help more than 64 organizations in 16 years.
