with The 1% program of Public Architecture, winner of the 2012 ASID Design for Humanity Award. Modeled on successful pro bono efforts in the legal community, The 1% program challenges A&D ﬁrms nationwide—from solo practitioners to global leaders—to pledge a minimum of one percent of their time to public service. As a partner of The 1% program, ASID encourages its members to make pro bono service an integral part of practice. Many of you already are. ASID members, through their design ﬁrms’ existing pro bono efforts, are already contributing more than $9 million in services annually to the most vulnerable communities through The 1% program. Developed to serve as a mechanism to support designers and to advance the development of service models to support under-served communities, The 1% program provides a framework for volunteer efforts. When volunteers sign on with The 1%, the program provides a variety of professional resources that support ﬁrms’ pledges to offer pro bono services. Among The 1%’s opportunities, registered participants can ﬁnd nonproﬁt clients who require assistance, post projects to the Project Gallery, download helpful guides and publications, and connect with their peers through initiatives like Design Advocates.
