Financial support from the community plays a critical role in enabling us to continue our mission of promoting creative reuse, recycling, and resource conservation by diverting valuable materials from the waste stream and redirecting them to artists, builders, educators and the general public. Your contribution in any dollar amount is appreciated, because we see the true value of donor support in the many ways it has helped us to improve the environment, enhance the arts, and contribute to a local, sustainable economy in Philadelphia! We are proud to highlight some of these stories on the Collaborations page and blog.

thank you to our generous donors!
