I had the pleasure of being a speaker at the recent Interior Design Summit in High Point, North Carolina. I centered my presentation on how I have grown Crimson Design group with intention and a focus on giving back to others.
I have been incredibly fortunate, and I feel compelled to share my blessings with others. Every month, Crimson donates a percentage of all of our client fees to a nonprofit organization of either our or our clients’ choosing. This year, our goal is to donate $100,000 in client fees, and we couldn’t be more excited. Our clients, vendors, and employees are all Crimson’s partners in this philanthropic effort.
This year, Crimson has also formed an internal task force called the “Community Generosity Team,” whose sole mission is to find new organizations to which we can contribute. This committee is managed by team members who research nonprofit organizations (local, national, or international) to find those they believe should receive our donations. They’re given a discretionary fund from which they can draw, and committee members present their selections to me.
Giving back puts soul and meaning into my business. Part of building beautiful life experiences is connecting with those around us.
