A Look at our top 5 DFAD Sponsors

Design For A Difference (DFAD) wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our supplier partners’ contributions toward transforming spaces for local community organizations. Since DFAD started, our top suppliers have donated a cumulative total of over $300,000. These donations have come in the form of products and monetary donations to help gather supplies needed to transform these spaces into what they are today. Some of the products our supplier partners have donated include flooring, window treatments, and more. Many of our partners also make monetary contributions so we can complete the finishing touches such as adding art from a local artist. Many of our supplier partners work through our locally owned IDG member locations to help fund DFAD projects. We want to take a look at our top 5 supplier partners and give them some recognition.
