Designs for Dignity (D4D) provides pro bono design expertise and materials to qualifying nonprofits. The result is the renovation and modernization of their key program and treatment spaces, a change that helps them better serve their immediate populations.
“Designs for Dignity is honored to be chosen by Renovation Angel as a charity partner,” states Jennifer Sobecki, CEO, Designs for Dignity. “The act of recycling is a win-win for both organizations — we maintain our sustainability goals by redeploying amazing kitchens, lighting and other residential items to Renovation Angel, all while supporting our organization, as well.”
“This program will directly help our donors by giving them an outlet to recycle luxury items from remodeling projects and benefit from a tax donation. With the tremendous, continued support we receive from the design industry, we look forward to the growth of this partnership and increasing D4D’s ability to assist more nonprofits.”
Since 2000, D4D has worked with Chicago’s design community and all of its resources to work with approximately 15 nonprofits each year, which has totaled more than 200 organizations. Over that time, D4D has impacted the lives of more than 604,000 individuals, provided more than 17,000 hours of service and donated more than $7.7 million in design services and material donations to projects across the Midwest.
Empowering Lives Through Design
Designs for Dignity was founded on the belief that every individual should have access to environments that support the wellness of the human spirit. Design is a transformational force in human life. Our physical surroundings directly impact how we feel, react, aspire, and engage. Spaces of hope, dignity, and comfort are foundations for nurturing the growth and success of every human being.
