Thank you for asking! We’re honored. We’re a capacity-building organization, funded by donors, to specifically accelerate the work of Unseen partners. As a result, we aren’t able to take on projects for organizations who aren’t partnered with us.
Yes. We believe in your work so much that we raise funds, just like you, to be able to provide products and services at no cost to our partners. In turn, we ask that partners help by reporting back stories of success and financial growth so we can share these with our donors. In rare cases where there are some financial costs, they will be clearly communicated before the start of any project.
Almost all of our products and services are free. Unseen’s services are always free, but products that require a third party subscription with ongoing costs (i.e. annual/monthly website hosting, domains, advanced MailChimp accounts) will need to be covered by you, our partner. Check out our Products Page to see all of our products and click into them for details on costs.
Partnership with Unseen centers around building compelling marketing tools to help you fundraise effectively, so you can grow your work and assist more people. We reserve our services specifically for accepted Unseen Partners. Together, with our partners, we select helpful Unseen products and produce them one after the other. We start with smaller projects and progress toward large projects depending on your needs and our resources.
Unseen offers no-cost printing and shipping on select products. We pay for printing and shipping from a wholesale printing company, and raise funds to provide the service at no cost to our partners.
Printing quantity and specifics vary by product. All print cards are printed on high quality cardstock (16pt) with matte, gloss, or custom finish, based on the project's design.
No-cost reprinting is also available for products designed through Unseen.
Partnering with Unseen consists of several requirements. These requirements allow us to understand the impact that we have on our partners, and communicate that impact to our donors. Main requirements include:

Electronic payments are made through billpay.com. Depending on the size of the project, we may pay a deposit up front, and the remaining amount upon completion. You can expect to receive your deposit within a few business days after signing your Project Scope and final payment within a few business days of project completion. If you have any questions about payment, please contact us.
Unseen typically pays on a per-project basis. We offer competitive pay on projects, while providing client support that can save you time. We have set rates for the projects we do most frequently and payment guidelines for the rest. We'll handle all payment conversations upfront so you'll know what to expect before you start.
Unseen is a nonprofit 501(c)(3). Every dollar of our operating budget is donated by people who believe our work is valuable and making a difference in accelerating the fight against human trafficking and the growth of our partners.
