Riverside county nonprofits do incredible work every day turning their communities around. Yet, awareness of their impact, as measured by the number of lives saved, people housed, individuals clothed and fed, as well as the social innovations employed, is rare.

For a lucky few, that will change, as the “Design For Good” program will match local graphic designers with worthy local nonprofit organizations to shine a spotlight on their missions and causes.

Design For Good is presented by Arts4Good and will be hosted by the College of Architecture, Visual Arts and Design at California Baptist University in Riverside. Cal Baptist is located at 8432 Magnolia Ave.

The event runs for 24 hours from 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22, through 9 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 23. A Design For Good reveal event in November will allow students to present their final designs to eager nonprofits.

Design For Good San Bernardino County provided more than $20,000 in pro bono marketing to four nonprofits last April. Recipients included The Orenda Foundation with services for veterans; Family Assistance Program of Victorville; Women of Nobel Character; and High Desert Homeless Services, one of the few family-oriented housing shelters in Southern California.

San Bernardino County Supervisor Robert Lovingood provided certificates of recognition to each of the student designers from Cal State San Bernardino and Art Institute Inland Empire, acknowledging their efforts to make the region a better place.

Design For Good is a national movement sponsored by AIGA (aiga.org), serving as a catalyst for design-driven social change. For more information, contact (909) 234-4782 or email reggie@arts4good.net.  For event info, visit the Arts4Good website.
