desigNYC's Grant for Change Entry 2010

Background:
Dr. Edwin Schlossberg’s contributions to the design community include co-founding desigNYC in 2009, with the mission of delivering the transformative power of design to nonprofits in New York. DesigNYC operated as a 501(c)(3) organization, matching multidisciplinary designers with extraordinary nonprofits serving the public good. Under Dr. Schlossberg’s direction the program facilitated over 40 pro-bono design projects. Through a collaborative design process, designers built community and increased social capital, participating in design fairs and public programs to promote the power of design for social change. 2014 was the final year of desigNYC project collaborations, with the program coming to a close at the November 6th exhibition. DesigNYC was featured in numerous publications including Fast Company, Core77, Architectural Record and The Atlantic.
