Aquent and Capital One Partner to Create Pro Bono Initiative

Aquent and Capital One are excited to announce the launch of Four Good – a pro bono initiative and quarterly event series that will provide creative services to nonprofits in Chicago. The first event will take place on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019.

Four Good is a quarterly meetup that will host Chicago creatives to rally around one goal: to solve a creative issue for a local nonprofit within a 4-hour time frame. The creative services Four Good can provide range from logo and webpage design, to social media strategy and overall branding efforts – plus everything in between.

In December, Aquent and Capital One held a kickoff meeting, where they hosted representatives from Merkle, Deloitte, and Fjord to reveal Future Founders as the designated nonprofit to receive creative services at the first Four Good meetup. Future Founders is an organization that’s empowering the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs through programs that connect youth with mentors.

The first Four Good meetup will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019, at Capital One’s downtown Chicago offices. Seating is limited; local creatives may reserve a spot by emailing fourgoodchicago@gmail.com.

Along with Capital One’s Future Edge program and Aquent’s Designing for Good grant initiative, Four Good is an example of how both companies are committed to helping their local communities through grassroots and skills-based volunteerism efforts.
