Spotted Triforce Arts Life Economy Program

We at Spotted Triforce Arts have pledged to expend part of our efforts to the long-term benefit of the general public. We're not Greenpeace or whistleblowers or participate in demo rally's much, but we are greatful that such groups and individuals are around. What we're good at is creating multimedia content. So if we're going to help make the world a better place, we'll do it with animations. That's why we came up with a new program with the sole purpose to give back.

The donation matching program is a system in which our clients can participate. By participating, clients voluntarily pay a “Life Economy Fee” equaling 3% of their invoice totals on top of the service fees, and Spotted Triforce Arts matches those 3% and donates the sum to an organization of the client’s choice. The client is provided with a receipt for the donation within 15 days of the payment of the respective invoice. Starting January 1st 2017, the optional “Life Economy Fee” will automatically be added to all invoices of qualifying clients. All they have to do to participate is to pay the invoice including the fee and choose one of the below organizations to send their contributions to:

Fight For the Future

Fight for the Future is dedicated to protecting and expanding the Internet’s transformative power in our lives by creating civic campaigns that are engaging for millions of people. Alongside internet users everywhere, they beat back attempts to limit our basic rights and freedoms, and empower people to demand technology (and policy) that serves their interests.

Electronic Frontier Foundation

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the digital world. Founded in 1990, EFF champions user privacy, free expression, and innovation through impact litigation, policy analysis, grassroots activism, and technology development.

The Post Carbon Institute

Post Carbon Institute helps individuals and communities understand and respond to the environmental, societal, and economic crises created by our dependence on fossil fuels. Post Carbon Institute is dedicated to helping families, communities, governments, and businesses understand and manage the transition to a post carbon world. Our aim is to bring together thought leaders and replicable best practices in such a way that both the challenges and solutions are approached holistically.

National Wildlife Federation

National Wildlife Federation works closely with those who span the social and political spectrum, but who are connected by a common commitment to conservation.

Carbonfund is leading the fight against global warming, making it easy and affordable for any individual, business or organization to reduce & offset their climate impact and hasten the transition to a clean energy future.

The Venus Project

The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable, but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.

Mozilla Foundation

Their mission is to ensure the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. An Internet that truly puts people first, where individuals can shape their own experience and are empowered, safe and independent. If you think mozilla is nothing more than an average web browser, you may want to browse over to their website.

Any other Nonprofit

Our clients can also choose any other nonprofit organization to donate to.

Spotted Triforce Arts is proud to announce that we will henceforth donate some of our time creating animations for a good cause. We know that animations can be expensive and out of reach for some non-profit organizations that have an important message to share with the world. That’s why we decided to help out these causes by providing free or discounted services to them. We do this by awarding to a selection of applicants one of the following, on an annual basis:

  • Free Services

    The winner of the free service will have the opportunity to work with us on one animation project resulting in a single linear (non-interactive) animation for the purposes of awareness creation for their organization or one of its projects completely free of charge*. The animation can be up to 120 seconds in length and consume up to 80 work hours. The animation will conclude with a 5-10 second clip promoting the Spotted Triforce Arts Life Economy Program.
  • Discounted Services

    The winner of the discounted service will have the opportunity to work with us on one animation project resulting in one to three individual linear (non-interactive) animation clips (if needed) for the purposes of awareness creation for their organization or one of its projects with a 70% discount off of our regular hourly rate of $100/hour**. The animations can be up to 120 seconds in combined length and consume up to 120 work hours. The animation will conclude with a 5-10 second clip promoting the Spotted Triforce Arts Life Economy Program.


In order to qualify for our free or discounted price service, your organization must have a non-profit status and work towards goals that benefit either the environment, the global economy, or the society as a whole.


Each calendar year, we award two organizations with free or discounted services for one project each. These are selected from a pool of application submissions received during the application period for that year. The application period runs from December 1st of the previous calendar year to March 1st of the applicable calendar year. Applications must be received by the March 1st in order to be considered.
