Contributing to the Collaborative

For more than 20 years, the non-profit Community Design Collaborative has brought energy, vision, and volunteers to the work of improving neighborhoods in the Philadelphia area. Since 1991, the Collaborative has leveraged 100,000 volunteer hours, provided by more than 1,000 design professionals, completing 600 projects, over 22 years. In 2013 alone, the Collaborative had served 35 community nonprofits and public agencies, provided 8,778 hours of pro bono work valued at $925,664; completed 21 design grants; and organized a full-day design charrette.

Your support helps the Collaborative meet the ongoing needs of our neighborhoods, provide inspiring opportunities for our volunteers, and engage the public in creative problem-solving around critical social, economic, environment and design issues. The Collaborative is a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status. All gifts are tax-deductible. Please give today.
