You know it

Noble doesn't pay the bills

DIA Design Guild helps companies and nonprofits figure out their information and website needs by focusing on good user experience starting with research, strategy, structure, and design. We are committed to working with those who provide social, economic and environmental good to their communities.

If you believe in what we do, there are a number of ways you can give us a hand, and we hugely appreciate all of them!


Buy us boba - $5/month

Buy us boba drinks for $5.00 a month because you believe in our mission and vision and because it speaks to you. Well, technically, $5 will barely get us one good boba drink, but it'll add up in the Boba fund!

SGVUX Events:

We host free monthly UX events 9 months out of the year, geared towards the questions and needs from our community. When we're in-person, we charge at least $15 to cover the cost of food and drinks and any overhead costs. Consider a donation to cover the cost of another person's ticket.

Virtual since March 2020, we've been hosting happy hours every 2nd Tuesday, co-working sesh every blue moon, and portfolio reviews every other week. Sponsorships help make our events accessible and appreciated.

Partner - starting at $1,000/month

We develop a free apprentice program to help those who otherwise don't have the means to afford a bootcamp or support to make sense of it all. DIA Design Guild prides itself in providing a safe environment for early career and transitioning professionals to flex their skills and develop their portfolio by pairing them with more experienced mentors.

  • Mentors are not compensated for their time but we would like to offer something to share our appreciation.
  • Apprentices are not paid but we would love to start a fund to help them offset their living and educational expenses.

You're ready to partner with DIA Design Guild and invest in the DIA apprentice program. If you have DEI or other projects, we can work with your team to figure out how to bring on an apprentice.
