We give organizations accepted into 99nonprofits a free design contest in the category of their choice (logo design, t-shirt design, social media page design, etc.). Just as with any other 99designs contest, each organization creates a simple design brief, receives dozens of concepts from designers around the world, and ultimately selects (and retains legal copyright to) the design they like best. The difference here, though, is participating nonprofits pay nothing. We pay designers the same cash prize they’d win in a regular 99designs contest.
