Our Model

Every year, non-profit organizations are spending close to 8 billion dollars on fees billed by service-providers. At any given moment, verynice is balancing an equal number of pro-bono and paid projects. This is made possible by verynice’s pioneering “give-half” model which calls for our studio to take on a high volume of projects in order to generate the revenue necessary for us to be able to afford to simultaneously engage in pro-bono work for non-profit organizations. To accomplish this, we work with an extensive distributed team of over 400 volunteers in order to maximize our bandwidth while keeping costs low.





The MovementGraphic_TheBook

In 2012, verynice decided that the only way we could achieve our mission of alleviating non-profit expenses would be to inspire a new movement in pro-bono. To accomplish this, we completely open-sourced our business model and proprietary methodologies. As a result, we have inspired thousands of practitioners to engage in pro-bono work, and there are now dozens of “give-half” businesses in operation around the world.


Receiving Pro-Bono Support

verynice carefully reviews all pro-bono candidates and selects the beneficiaries of its Give-Half program on a rolling basis, based on availability. All pro-bono beneficiaries are required to have an official 501(c)3 status, or the international equivalent. To fill out an application for your non-profit, please visit the Get Started page. Due to the volume of requests we receive, we can not respond to every inquiry. Good luck!
