Philanthropy By Design

    Please Call: (415) 552-1772

    Drop-off: Call to see if currently accepting and to make arrangements for delivery.

    General Info: Most donations come from businesses that are remodeling, moving or closing, or from the design community which donates both new and used furnishings. Donations of furnishings can be as large as the contents of an entire hotel or as small as a single lamp from an individual. Philanthropy By Design (PBD) does not currently maintain a warehouse; therefore, donations are accepted only for projects in progress. Individuals should contact PBD via phone or e-mail with a description of the item(s) they wish to donate and if one of the design teams working on a project needs the item(s), delivery arrangements are then made.

    When you are considering a donation, contact Philanthropy By Design as soon as you know you will have furnishings available. Advanced planning allows us to better match the needs of our non-profit clients more efficiently. All donations are tax deductible and all donors receive a letter detailing the donation and the value of the items for tax records.

    Hours: Call for hours.
