RATIO | Foundation


At RATIO we believe in giving back and diving in. Founded in 2004, the RATIO | Foundation supports the interests and passions of our employees through time off for civic engagement and targeted, employee-driven grants. 

Our team members are empowered to make a difference in the communities in which they live and work, by learning, teaching, volunteering or otherwise helping to make the world a better place. With a focus on mentoring the underserved and underprivileged, RATIO strives to be a force for good where investment in people and places is most in need.

1+ Pro Bono Commitment


We believe in the power of design to create a better world. Our responsibility as designers to do just that requires us to think beyond our traditional ways of working.

We’ve joined the American Institute of Architects' 1+ movement to dedicate a minimum of one percent of our working time to pro bono service, challenging ourselves to partner with nonprofits and community groups and advance the places we call home.
