This handbook is a resource to help architects, designers, and their offices develop the framework to incorporate pro bono design into practice. It also serves as a guide on how to find projects, either on your own or through the 1+ matching process. By promoting pro bono service as a regular part of design practice, the 1+ program enhances the profession’s engagement with the underresourced communities most in need of the benefits of design. The 1+ program of Public Architecture is an international platform for architecture and design firms to engage in pro bono design. The 1+ website allows designers to document their pro bono contributions, gain recognition, and find new project opportunities. The matching service was launched in 2007 to connect nonprofits’ facility needs with firms willing to give of their time. As of this writing in 2016, the 1+ has grown from a grassroots movement to include more than 1500 firms across the U.S., delivering more than $55 million in pro bono services annually—a contribution that increases by the day.
