Nominate a Milwaukee Nonprofit for a Free Makeover

Floor360 is leading Design for a Difference to give a deserving local nonprofit a makeover.

Wisconsin flooring contractor and showroom FLOOR360 is again leading Design for a Difference to give a deserving local nonprofit a makeover this fall – and they’re asking the Milwaukee community to submit nominations

Design for a Difference is an organization that brings together socially conscious and design-driven showrooms with local businesses and interior designers. “The greater Milwaukee area has a tremendous number of nonprofits in need of financial support and public awareness,” says Kelly Kuehn, FLOOR360 Kashou Design Studio manager and director of Design for a Difference.



What’s Brew City’s best? We’ve picked 16 of our favorite Milwaukee craft beers for a March Madness-style tournament, but it’s up to you to pick the winner! Will it be bright and hoppy? Dark and malty? A zippy lager? Every one is worthy of the title; who will claim the sudsy crown?

A volunteer design team will take a vision, based on the needs of the nonprofit, and turn it into reality with the help of local donors and businesses. “The designers prioritize listening to and learning from the nonprofit to create designs that lift spirits and improve the function of the space,” says Kuehn.

In addition to a new space, recipients benefit long after the finished product is revealed. Chosen organizations are given the opportunity to draw public attention, build awareness for their cause and receive more funding to continue towards their community goals. It’s important that leadership at the nonprofits are willing participants who will leverage the makeovers to create new revenue streams, improve services and hire new talent,” Kuehn says. “It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.”

Past recipients include Walker’s Point Youth and Family Center and the Grand Avenue Club

All members of the community, including those affiliated with a nonprofit, are welcome to fill out a nomination form online that details how the organization can benefit from this program. “We want to know how these organizations make a difference in our community and how Design For A Difference can help them,” says Kuehn.

Nominations will be accepted online through April 24, and the recipient will be announced in May.
