Welcome to Benevity's Skyline design system Documentation ("Skyline Documentation").
Skyline Documentation has been developed by Benevity, Inc. (" Benevity", or sometimes referred to as " Our" or " Us"). Benevity's mission is to act as a catalyst to infuse a culture of Goodness into the world, democratizing giving, volunteering and other pro-social activities worldwide through the power of technology and our passion for creating world class client experiences. In the course of carrying out our mission, our teams have developed state of the art design systems to give our users the best possible experience when they interact with our products and services. We're so proud of our design systems and user interfaces that we want to share them with members of the web-developing public (that's you or " You" or " Your"!), so that like-minded Goodness ambassadors looking to create a positive experience for users can leverage what we've built. It's our gift to you to use for free, on the following terms and conditions. Also note, this is not an open source offering; the below sets out the license and other terms and conditions that apply when interacting with or using Skyline Documentation.
