The Center is now an Educational Improvement Organization in Pennsylvania

The Center is now an Educational Improvement Organization in Pennsylvania. This means that businesses and individuals can make a donation to the Center to support our Architecture and Design Education program, and they can receive an 80% or 90% tax credit against their taxes.  For more information about the Educational Improvement Tax Credit program, please click here.

The Center's Architecture and Design Education (ADE) program are committed to exponentially expanding the access to quality design education in Philadelphia. Diversity in the design and construction industry is woefully inadequate and unrepresentative of People of Color. Our goal is to make more students aware of the career opportunities in design with a particular focus on students from BIPOC and Latinx communities.

For individuals and businesses that have applied for Education Improvement Tax Credits (EITC) before, the Center is an approved organization and if you are interested in supporting our Architecture and Design Education program, please reach out to Rebecca Johnson immediately, as renewals are open on May 15th and are available first-come, first-serve.

For individuals and businesses who have not applied for EITC before and are interested in learning how you can support the next generation of designers.  Join us for an informational webinar about EITC on Tuesday, May 17th at 8:00 am.
