Seattle STEP UP for the 1%

Last night, we had about 50 people come out for drinks and a short program on pro bono design services.  Two non profits were kind enough to speak a little about their experience with pro bono service and what it allowed them to accomplish (a lot!).  One architect, Brian Palidar of GroupArchitect spoke about his partnership with the Sibling House Foundation, doing housing assessments/remodels to keep foster kids together.  We ended with a Q&A covering a wide range of topics, from convincing management to prioritize pro bono services, to selecting non profit clients. I was very pleased with both the attendance and the response!

If you have questions about pro bono service, how to sign up, or would like to have me come to your non-profit and answer questions about how to capitalize on the amazing expertise of local design professionals, please contact me at
