The Blank Plate pilot program is housed at The Point (CDC) which is a 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible. Each year, a significant funding comes from individual donors like you, whose contributions go directly to our project costs. Your support pays for things like design materials for Blank Plate, kitchen tools, kitchen equipment, food and our team’s stipends for their work. We are grateful for your ongoing support! There are three ways to make a tax-deductible contribution to Blank Plate:

1) Make a secure online donation via Paypal, specifying Blank Plate in the notes
2) Mail a check to The Point CDC, 940 Garrison Avenue, Bronx, NY 10474, specifying “Blank Plate” in the memo.
3) Contribute your materials or other in-kind donations. We are always in need of design materials, kitchen tools, kitchen equipment, and food. Email us at if you would like to donate materials. Thank you thank you thank you for making our programming possible year after year.

We would also like to thank all of our contributors: The Clif Bar Foundation, Sappi Ideas That Matter, The New Challenge, The New School and Design Ignites Change through the Adobe Foundation and World Studio. None of this would be possible without you!
