Partner with the International Design Clinic
The IDC needs material support. To design, our volunteers need paper, pens, computers, and model-making equipment; to build, our teams need tools and materials. Without this support, our talented volunteers simply cannot give their talents to those in need.
We need our supporters to tell others. Specifically, we need those who have dedicated their lives to helping others to know about the IDC and how it could support their efforts. Only then will the skills of our talented volunteers bring about the playgrounds, gardens, community centers and homes required by communities and organizations in need throughout the world.
We need financial support to provide travel fellowships and pay for the materials required to complete the project. Over time, this support will allow the IDC to endow permanent travel fellowships and hire full-time staff — key components to realizing creative work with communities in need around the world.
Give your support
Over the last several years, the IDC has fielded dozens of other requests for help from organizations in Haiti, Mexico City and the US. Non-profits doing critical work in the poorest sections of the world have seen our work and are requesting our assistance; creative professionals and students from around the world, having learned of our work, are asking how they might partner with us and donate their talents to those who need them most. Unfortunately, we do not currently have the infrastructure in place to keep up with this demand; for every project we accept, the IDC has to turn down three more. In response, we are raising funds to expand our base so that we might make our services more accessible to those who need them most. You are invited to become a partner with the IDC as we grow and help us to bring our unique creative work to a world in need.
