    Who should our 2020 Social Mission Partner be?

    We’re looking for our 2020 Fig Social Mission Partner and we want to hear from you! We need your help in choosing our next nonprofit partner who needs our help in spreading the word about their good work.


    At Fig, we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. Over the past 6 years, we’ve had 6 Fig Social Mission Partners and benefitted greatly from getting to know each one and telling their unique story. Our 2019 Social Mission Partner was Brandywine Valley SPCA—an impactful nonprofit whose goal is to end animal suffering and to involve the entire community in the welfare and well-being of animals. Read about them here.

    Help us chose our 2020 Social Mission Partner!


    Our Social Mission Partner will receive a full page in each issue of Fig in 2020, lots of love on our digital channels, and 10% of the subscription cost for all those who subscribe to Fig in 2020. The total package is valued at approximately $10,000!


    What organization do you feel helps the community around us with their good work? Let us know!
