What we doOur mission is to transform nonprofit environments through design.
PBD is a volunteer network of design industry professionals. We renovate the interior environments of community service organizations and save tons of furniture from the landfill through creative reuse. Our work benefits thousands of under served Bay Area residents; at-risk youth, abused women, seniors, AIDS patients and homeless people, bringing them hope, inspiration and comfort.

Celebrating 25 Years
SF Chronicle Covers "Turning Silver Into Green" Event
"Philanthropy By Design celebrated 25 years of Recycling With a Heart by flooding the SOMArts Cultural Center with dozens of green lights, balloons and flowers, and an array of donated designer items.
"As the wine flowed, guests bid on goods created from fabrics by Momentum Textiles. All silent auction profits went to the group, and included the "ooh la la" pillow by interior designer Amy Anderson, mustard yellow bow ties by group board member Gloria Bernard and a one-of-kind coat created by local designer Kathleen van der Spek."
