Success Stories: Illustration Roundup

Examples of visual inspiration from volunteers.


Morgan McKeever

Every organization, no matter what their mission, vision, or values may be, needs to learn to tell their story in a variety of ways. One way that many successfully do that is by creating original artwork to support their mission and other key fundraising initiatives. The volunteer artists on Catchafire are tremendously talented and have helped many organizations bring their creative visions to life. Since 2010, volunteer artists have designed nearly 800 pieces for the social good sector.

Below are some of the wonderful examples we've come across, and we hope it serves as inspiration if you're looking to post an illustration project of your own!
