Philanthropy

The IIDA Northern California Chapter and City Centers partner with nonprofit organizations to support our continuing efforts towards social responsibility.

Unified Theme

By aligning our chapter and city centers under a unified theme each year, we are able to address the needs of our local community in a relevant and meaningful way. We focus our work in our communities and organizations that we can impact through design.

The 2019 theme is Design for the Future

We support organizations whose focus is on our youngest generations, whose efforts positively shape the minds and experiences of the people who will be our educators, influencers, and leaders. By impacting the way that people learn and collaborate, they have the power to lay the groundwork for more informed, more compassionate future generations.

Examples: Learning/ Education, Schools, Design, Children

2016 Design for Dignity

2017 Design for Empowerment

2018 Design for Wellness

2018 Design for wellness

We support organizations who champion sustainability at all scales, from the well-being of the individual to the health of the planet. Through advocacy and awareness, they challenge us to make smart choices and act as stewards to the people and things around us.

In 2018, we proudly supported the following organizations:
