Giving by Design

Our Giving by Design program provides a way for our teammates to contribute to the communities we serve beyond our design work. We believe that the personal engagement of our teammates in making a difference heightens the quality and commitment of the firm’s overall work.

MOA makes an annual commitment to allocate time, resources, and a percentage of our business profits to drive our Giving by Design program. The program includes outreach, volunteering, pro-bono design services, and charitable donations.

If your organization has a need for volunteers, pro-bono design services, or charitable donations, we would love to hear from you. Please submit information about your organization and your need through our Contact page, selecting the “Giving by Design” as your reason for inquiry, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we are able.

Socially relevant architecture has infused the firm’s work from the beginning, so it is appropriate that a key part of our Giving by Design program is providing pro bono design services to deserving organizations and their important projects.
