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.


In 2024, the Design Advocacy Group (DAG) has promoted advocacy in the excellence and equity of design, planning, architecture, and preservation. We have advocated for best practices and policies for Philadelphia's next mayor, in designing our public realm, affordable housing, Philadelphia's parks and trails, and more. Our monthly meetings have been attended by thousands of people with diverse programs including critical and interesting topics relating to Philadelphia's built environment. 


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 WeDidIt


2. 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.
