1VENUE: Choose the Venue Wisely and Consider a Non-Profit Space. It’s a win-win allowing for a necessary event cost to double as a charitable donation. Some of our favorite Non-Profit venues in New York include:

World Monument Funds Gallery – A sleek and modern gallery where 100% of rental proceeds support Common Ground’s mission to end homelessness in New York

 Central Park Zoo – This iconic venue helps support Wildlife Conservation Society’s mission to help save wildlife and wild places around the globe

Angel Orensanz – As the oldest synagogue in New York, this historic landmark funds The Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Arts, an artistic and cultural resource open to artists, writers, thinkers and leaders from all over the world.

 2COCKTAILS: Details that Make a BIG Difference! We love to work with brands that incorporate social awareness in their identity! ONE HOPE Wine donates a portion of their proceeds to different causes. The Pinot Noir supports ASPCA and animal shelters. Belvedere’s special edition RED bottle raises money for the Global Fund, fighting HIV/AIDS.

3DECOR: Donate Supplies & Materials to be Repurposed. For your event, we will work with local organizations to ensure that any leftover materials, food, or décor is put to good use! From scheduling a pick up, arranging for a messenger, or posting items for direct donation, we are committed to the philosophy that no resources go to waste.

By distributing donated props and materials to local charities Film Biz Recycling prevents pollution, creates jobs and aids our community. Since its inception in 2008, FBR has diverted over 450 tons of materials from the NYC waste stream.

Materials For The Arts takes donations and provides them to artists, nonprofit cultural organizations, and educators throughout the city.

4FOOD: Make the Most of Leftovers! We work with green caterers who facilitate food donation and/or composting. They also feature local and organic food. For large-scale events we schedule pick ups ahead of time so that at the end of the event leftovers can be donated directly to Food Banks. We also work with local soup kitchens and food pantries.

5GIFTS: Think Outside the Favor Box. Select favors with a purpose! We work with retailers who donate a percentage of their sales to charities. OR make a donation on behalf of your guests in lieu of a physical favor. We create thoughtful and personal takeaways to ensure that guests know about the donation made in their name and its impact.

6VENDORS: Use Good People! We place a priority on utilizing local vendors which in turn supports local communities and conserves energy overall. Buying fair trade products is another detail that promises so much more, promoting fair working conditions and helping to improve impoverished communities globally.
