How can a donation transform learning?

Donating is simple and has an immediate impact. Window and point of sale displays, posters, etc. can get a new life as classroom design and in school prototype labs. Best of all, your donation keeps these materials out of landfills. updatED design is part of the Anastasis Foundation for Innovative Learning, a 501(c)(3) non-profit making your donation tax-deductible as allowed by law.
View our wishlist below to learn about the types of material donations we accept and how you can donate.
Point of sale displays
Point of sale displays (shelf talkers, floor stand displays, etc.) are wonderful materials for students to cut apart and rebuild into something new. Point of sale displays often end up in our schools prototype labs where students can re-imagine materials through the design thinking process.
Window displays often represent incredible creativity and design. We believe that schools should be filled with good design and inspiration for the learners they house. Window display materials get new life as classroom and school decor, in a prototype lab, or for special events.
Branding & Identity
Extra posters, single sided fliers, and other branding/identity materials are wonderful for large format student work. Students often use the back of these posters and fliers to create their own large format work.
