Free Desktop Publishing for Not for Profit

You are a Not for Profit organisation or a Charity and you need some professional work done, such as create a new logo, refurbish an existing logo, create a brochure, something that will be downloaded from your site, or sent to a professional printer (I only handle minor webdesign work).

This is expensive and the work of professional designers, which you may not have the funds to pay.

You will need to sign a contract and make a donation to another charity

Font licenses

All fonts have a license which protects their copyright, and some of them are free to use, others not, others only free for non commercial use.

Fonts are like software or images or texts really. Someone worked to create them, they deserve payment for their work.

The issue is that as a lot of people have bunches of TTF, PS and OTF files that have no copy protection, there is a widespread belief that fonts are free to use and that they have no license.
Nothing further from the truth.

Typically a font licence will be around 25 USD, and there are quite a few online shops where you can buy the font licence. Having the font file is not having a licence, just like breaking into a car parked on the street is not owning it.
