Sharing Dots was founded as a nonprofit to serve humanitarian organizations that cannot afford to pay the full cost of media and marketing resources. We are a full service creative agency that operates on a cost basis to keep our services affordable to small and mid-size non-profit organizations.

Further Discounted Rates
We don’t want our costs to be a barrier for non-profit organizations to use our services. We specialize in working with smaller local organizations that don’t have a large marketing budget. Our services are often needed for these organizations to be able to raise the money needed to grow. Because of this we provide discounts of 25%, 50%, and 75% (off non-profit rates listed above) based on the size of the organization, their ability to pay, and the impact we see the project having for the organization.
We ask organizations to pay our non-profit rates above when they can because these are the base rates that cover our time and expenses. We personally fundraise to bring in donations so we can cover our costs and provide smaller organizations with discounts.
