One local non-profit each in Madison and Milwaukee will be selected to receive an interior makeover in 2020
MADISON, WI (January 28, 2020) – FLOOR360, leading provider of design-driven flooring announced nominations are being accepted for a Design for a Difference-Madison and Design for a Difference-Milwaukee makeover. Everyone is invited to nominate a non-profit facility that needs a makeover in 2020, including individuals who work at the non-profit. The nominations will be accepted until February 29, and the selection will be announced on April 15 at Spring into Design at FLOOR360 in Madison and announced in late March in Milwaukee.
The makeover process begins in April, when FLOOR360 announces the selection of the non-profit facility and the design team meets for the first time. The design team is composed of volunteer local interior designers who donate their time to plan, design and collect donations for the makeover. The goal is to create a fresh and re-imagined space that’s beautiful and functional so the non-profit’s focus can be directed to providing services for the community.
The work of demo and installation and design at the selected non-profit facility will be completed over the first two weeks in October.
Design for a Difference is a national community-driven movement launched in 2014 by the International Design Guild, and FLOOR360 brought to Madison in 2015, and together with Milwaukee Magazine launched Design for a Difference Milwaukee in 2019. In 2015 Design for a Difference – Madison organized a makeover of the Respite Center at RISE, in 2016 The Rainbow Project received a total makeover. In 2017, Centro Hispano received a makeover valued at $600,000 and in 2018 East Madison Community Center received another makeover valued at $600,000. Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center received an interior makeover valued at $700,000 in 2019. Over the last five years, the five makeovers have impacted over 20,000 people cumulatively in the Madison community thanks to donations of almost $2 million dollars in time, labor, materials and funds donated by FLOOR360, interior designers and local businesses.
