Ready to grow… at the crossroads… good stewards… jazz messengers… wherever you are and whatever your mission, we’re ready to help. The Community Design Collaborative is proud to announce its newest Design Grants to nonprofits! Check out who we'll be serving in the coming months.
The Collaborative will be working with Called to Serve to revitalize the intersection of North Broad Street, Erie Avenue, and Germantown Avenue, an active community hub. Called to Serve is dedicated to bringing renewal and hope to Tioga and other communities in Philadelphia, especially the schools and small enterprises.
Garden Court Community Association is seeking conceptual design services to re-envision an existing community open space to better serve the neighborhood and fulfill its potential as a community asset. This voluntary membership organization has been working for over 50 years to make the community bounded by 45th Street, 52nd Street, Cedar Avenue, and Locust Street the best possible place to live.
The Collaborative will provide the Neighborhood Center, Inc. in Camden, NJ with a conceptual design for an expansion to support its thriving arts programming. The Center’s mission is to break the cycle of poverty by offering academic, athletic, and arts programs for children and teenagers and to provide a safe and fun space for children and teens to engage in activities that challenge them.
The Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts will work with the Collaborative on a conceptual design for improvements to its Avenue of the Arts facility. The Club celebrates and preserves the legacy of jazz through accessible education for the Greater Philadelphia region, and to support the evolving art form through talent development, programming, and public performance.
