Design 4 Others Honoured For Pro-Bono Design Efforts
On Saturday, May 6th, Construction for Change (CfC) honoured Design 4 Others (D4O) with the Founders Award, an award that recognises the outstanding philanthropic efforts of individuals and companies whose support has proven invaluable to CfC.
D4O is a grassroots organisation, affiliated with HDR, that provides architecture, engineering and planning services for no compensation, maximising individual efforts to create a larger collective contribution. Over the years, D4O has partnered with CfC on numerous projects around the world, providing planning and design services as well as peer review services for various international projects.
“Design 4 Others has been catalytic to Construction for Change's mission to empower under-resourced communities through the building of critical infrastructure. In their comprehensive pro-bono design, planning and consulting across multiple CfC projects, D4O embodies the spirit of the Founders Awards.”
Kevin Hunter, CfC Executive Director.
Several HDR employees were on-hand to accept the award at CfC’s 9th annual banquet; however they accepted on behalf of over one hundred employees who have volunteered time and expertise over the years.
“CfC’s outstanding fundraising and project management capabilities have provided amazing opportunities for our employees to give back. The projects we have done with CfC have been both globally impactful and personally meaningful to every person involved.”
Warren Hendrickson, Public Health Director at HDR
