Support our Work

Investing in the Center's work means investing in the next generation of designers, builders, and makers. Through our work in classrooms, in our space at 1218 Arch Street, through scholarships, and 24/7 online -- we are engaging young people in learning about multiple design disciplines and trades to further their passions and creativity into a successful and fulfilling future.

Architecture + Design Education Program

Our Architecture and Design Education (ADE) program is committed to exponentially expand the access to quality design education in Philadelphia. Diversity in the design and construction industry is woefully inadequate and unrepresentative of People of Color. Our goal is to make more students aware of the career opportunities in design, with a particular focus on students from BIPOC and Latinx communities. Your support will go directly to the costs incurred in implementing our ADE program.

Cement Our Future

For those in nonprofit organizations, the hardest dollars to raise are the ones that keep the lights on. Support to general operating dollars helps the Center pay for its overhead, staff, maintain the building, and pay off our mortgage. In the end, these are the dollars that ensure our Center continues to thrive and serve our communities.
