Mission Statement

The Community Design Collaborative is a community design center that provides pro bono preliminary design services to nonprofit organizations in greater Philadelphia, offers unique volunteer opportunities for design professionals, and raises awareness about the importance of design in community revitalization. Founded in 1991, the Collaborative is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a network of more than 1,300 volunteers.

Description

The Collaborative’s early design assistance helps nonprofits succeed in the challenging arena of community and economic development. Our skilled volunteers work side by side with communities to put their visions down on paper and advance to the next stage: gaining support, raising funds, and building projects.

The Collaborative gives nonprofits access to preliminary design services by matching them with architects, landscape architects, urban planners, preservationists, engineers, cost estimators, and other volunteer design professionals seeking to serve the community.

Since 1991, Philadelphia’s design professionals have invested more than 100,000 hours of their time and expertise on over 600 projects. A diverse array of public agencies, private foundations, corporations, and individuals support the Collaborative’s mission.
