We believe in the inherent dignity of all people. Yet around the world, billions of people are excluded from full participation in the political, economic, and cultural systems that shape their lives by design. Help us challege inequality by funding the ingenuity of underrepresented talent in S.T.E.A.M.D that will ensure a fairer future.
DesignedByUs.org is a grassroots organization seeking dynamic partnerships with private and public sector organizations and giving individuals who share a common interest in introducing and exposing under represented communities to opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and Design (S.T.E.A.M.D.). When you make a donation to DesignedByUs.org and Peña Philanthropy Partners, a 501C3, you are funding the education, apprenticeships, studio programs and community solutions invented by the Design Corps.
To meet the demand from across the world, we are building the foundation for a network of STEAMD Studio that expand beyond our United States, New York and Bay Area studios to refugee camps, rural and impoverished communities. Our most urgent needs are for equipment, media, design and computer science experts, cash donations, and mentors/workshop assistants.
As we open studios and launching public service programs across the globe, we are equipping apprenctices, members and volunteers with the tools they need to transform their communities. From 3D Printers, AR/VR Headsets, Whiteboards, Desks, Computers and IoT devices to software, open source platforms and deployment supplies and curriculums we rely on generous companies, brands, academic institutions and giving indviduals to help us respond at the speed of now and the scale of the cosmos.
