15. INTEGRATION This Agreement includes the entire understanding of the parties of the subject matter contained in this document and supersedes and aggregates all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings and discussions between the parties with respect to this project. In the event of any conflict between this Agreement and other writings relating to this Project, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail unless modified by either party. The key to carrying out a pro bono project is to treat the engagement as a paid concert. Would you ever accept a paid engagement without the right protection for you and your business? Well. I hope not! Agreements are often excluded from commitments where dollars are not exchanged. This is partly because society is governed only by something monetary. This is completely false. With every exchange of value, you need a deal to protect both parties involved in the best possible way. Please note that it is important to always include the market price in your pro bono agreement to indicate the true value of your work.
Below you will find the exact agreement we enter into with our pro bono customers. Much of the content is based on AIGA`s standard agreement template, but the format and content have been repeated by friends, family, and colleagues over the years. It goes without saying that I am not a lawyer – always seek legal advice from someone who is much smarter than me. This schedule is only an estimate.
