Give Half

Creating a global #givehalf movement for pro-bono.

Design Strategy

How to Give Half of Your Work Away for Free  is a book that aims to open-source the 50% pro-bono business model invented by Matthew Manos known as the “double-half” methodology. The toolkit is broken into four primary sections that each aim to represent the inner-working of the model from drastically different perspectives. The origins of this business model reside in verynice, a global design and innovation consultancy that gives over half of its work away for free, but components of the methodology have now been leveraged by hundreds of service-providers across the globe who, together, are re-defining “philanthropy.”
