Our Giving

Small Haus. Big Impact.

We see a growing trend among our clients and other professionals to use their talents, products, and services to create a better world. We at IMAGEHAUS are on that same critical path. We are using the power of design to create connections for positive social, environmental, and business impact.

 

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 have helped raise over $35 million by putting the power of design to work.

Eligibility

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.

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.
