Nominate a 2020 Charity Makeover Recipient


Design for a Difference is the first-ever community driven movement that brings socially-conscious design-driven flooring showrooms together with interior designers and other businesses to makeover much needed spaces at local charities. The movement was started by the International Design Guild membership including local Madison business FLOOR360. The 2015 Charity recipient was the Respite Center at the Center for Families in Madison, WI. The 2016 Charity recipient was The Rainbow Project in Madison, WI. The 2017 Charity recipient was Centro Hispano. In 2018, the design team and over 200 volunteers executed a 12,800 square foot makeover of East Madison Community Center in Madison, WI. Visit the Past Projects page to see all the volunteers and donors with videos.
