Why Give?


Your tax-deductible contribution helps DAG present its free, monthly, open-to-the-public meetings and special events and supports DAG’s advocacy initiatives. Even a small contribution is a signal to potential funders and decision makers that DAG matters!


DAG is careful with your dollars; we run on volunteer power with only one part-time staffer, supported with the generosity of the William Penn Foundation.


During the COVID-19 pandemic, we moved our monthly meetings online, and ensured that they would remain free and open to the public. We’ve continued to publish DAG Forum pieces to bring new perspectives on the physical environment, and we launched DAG Dispatch, our weekly round-up of news and happenings in the world of architecture, planning, and design. We also launched our work on a charette for the Schuylkill waterfront alongside the Grays Ferry neighborhood in collaboration with our partners at PennPraxis. Your support will help us continue and expand these efforts into 2021.


Your contribution to DAG is tax-deductible because DAG is a project of CultureTrust Greater Philadelphia, a charitable 501(c)(3) trust supporting diverse cultural practices in the Philadelphia region.


Two easy ways to give:


1. By check, payable to: "Design Advocacy Group of CultureTrust." (The "of CultureTrust" is important. Your check cannot be processed without it). Send your contribution to CultureTrust c/o CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia, The Philadelphia Building | 1315 Walnut Street | Suite 320 | Philadelphia, PA 19107-4701 Attn: Johnny Gerant.


2. By WeDidIt
