How to Make an Impact This Giving Season

What is Giving Season?

While Giving Tuesday is only a single day dedicated to radical generosity (psst it’s on November 28th this year), it’s also the official kickoff to giving season — the time of year to give back to your community.

From volunteering your time and skills on a neighborhood project to making a charitable donation to an organization that aligns with your values, there are countless ways to make a difference before the end of the year!

Why support the Neighborhood Design Center?

The Neighborhood Design Center was founded in 1968 to help communities create the places they want to live by providing the tools, expertise, and partnerships necessary to realize neighborhood visions. 

At NDC, we understand that a community’s built environment is shaped by the collective vision of its community members. That’s why we’re committed to providing the support necessary to turn these visions into reality.

If you share our belief in the power of community engagement, we ask you to consider supporting NDC. 

The impact of your contribution extends far beyond this season of giving —  it has a lasting effect on the lives of those we serve.

Last year, you helped raise over $23,000!

What impact will my contribution have?

Your generous support has allowed us to expand our organization and support the growth of safe, healthy, and equitable neighborhoods in Baltimore City and Prince George’s County. Your support makes a real difference, and we want to express our sincere appreciation. From all of us at NDC, thank YOU!
