We know that our design services are not something that many businesses starting out can afford. But we know that good design, backed by systems and strategy, can help a business grow and get visible much faster.
We are a small business though, and cannot make much a difference by ourselves. But we know that with the help of our clients and community, together we can do great things! So, inspired by a presentation from Brigette Iarusso, we took a look at what we had and put together a pay-it-forward program—and that's how the Stargazed Design Scholarship was born.
How does it work?
When signing a new project, our clients can opt for a pay-it-forward option, where they pay extra for their project, and 100% of that extra cost goes to this fund.
Everyone is welcome to contribute through the Donations option below.
We'll occasionally have special events to raise more funds for this scholarship. For example, 10% of any services sold through our "End of the Year Offers" will go towards this fund.
Our studio commits to donate 40% of the work for each scholarship project.
The scholarship will not only cover design services, but also domain and hosting costs for up to a year.
Scholarship will be granted to women-founded businesses with a well-established plan for their business. The scholarship requires an application process that ensures that the funds are going to someone who will make good use of it.
Donate to our fund
If you want to help us provide good, strategic design services to small businesses changing the world, you can donate directly to the scholarship right here.
Any money you donate will be applied directly to a project funded by the scholarship, after the donation processing fees.
Note: Stargazed Studio is one of our legal DBAs, but our registered company name is Daily Lovejuice, LLC. That's why you'll see that name when donating to the fund!
